Lombok to the Gili's daytrip

Lombok to the Gili's daytrip
Save

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!

You can easily get across to the Gilis by going to Bangsal Harbour and getting a public ferry. Cost is less than $2. I recommend using the search on the forum, if you type in Gilis Day Trip there are many posts on this topic.

Boats run up to around 4:30-5, but are not on a fixed schedule.

That's really helpful, many thanks! Therefore I won't arrange anything here in England. I shall instaed wait until I arrive at Lombok and sort everything once I arrive at Bangsal Harbour

Yes no need to book anything, it's a public ferry. You can easily get a taxi to the Harbour too.
