I am in the process of trying to find a boat that crosses between Lombok Island and any of the three Gili islands. Has anybody done this as a day trip, and is it something best arranging once I arrive at Lombok? So far I am struggling to find this as a day excursion without having to combat the scourge of solo travel - the single supplement charge, which out of principle I am reluctant to pay. Additionally I am unable to find any vessel that seems to want to set sail back to Lombok on the return leg after 2pm.
Any help you can provide me with will be greatly appreciated!
