Our Boat Trip Journey with Bali Rizio is Funtastic, And we are lucky enough to seen Manta's Dolphine and the Captain keep taking us to a very beautiful Spot. We love it, the Service from the crew is also excellent. And i feel safe during the Trip. Free Food, Drink and watermelon after diving is a good Idea. Thank you!

My priority is safety, and Rocky’s crew kept us safe! The boat was nice and the snacks were good. But I liked that the driver was knowledgeable about where to go with children. And I like that the skipper was in the water with the children, paying very close attention to the youngest (11). They told us to swim with the current. That was helpful. They even looked out for people on other boats who were really struggling, as they swam against the current, unable to stay together safely!!

Rocky picked us up on time and drove us to the boat. He was very personable. He did not join the day trip, though. And that was fine with me.

One downside, and I think it’s cultural, from what I’ve read, is that the guys smoked cigarettes the entire day. That gave us a headache.

We would take the trip again! It was well worth it: $700.00 USD for pickup and drop off in Keramas, and a 7 hour day on the boat, with 3-4 stops. Our group included three children and two adults.

Spent the day with Bali Rizio boating charter yesterday . First it was a easy booking process Rocky always getting back to you within an hour . Transport on time for pick up , lovely clean new car , friendly driver .
The boat was clean and very appropriate for what we were doing .
The crew were smiley and friendly . The snorkeling spots were fab and they were so helpful all round .
Our main remit was to see turtles , they were so patient and searched to try and find them , but alas to no avail .
Thanks for a great day of fun and sightseeing
Highly recommend

We booked the boat because we read all of the great reviews, but we were not lucky with the weather - we texted Rocky asking whether it is good to leave with these weather conditions and he said the weather would be good. We had a very rough and bumpy travel to the islands, the boat jumping in the high waves, and we felt sick. The weather still bad. The only thing we wanted at that moment was to touch ground. Rocky did not accompany the trip and the 2 crew members did not really understand English. We said we wanted to relax first on a beautiful beach and used google translator finally to make them understand. They then brought us to an unattractive beach in Lembongan, mainly rocks, not at all what we were hoping for and full of tourists who came with the larger boats - where is the advantage of getting a private boat then? We asked if there were no better beaches and they said no, and that we should spend the next hours here and they left to the restaurant. We started walking and luckily found a smaller beach on our own that was nicer.

The boat in itself is a good boat and with good weather everything would be nicer (we should have been warned about the rough sea) but no stopping at beautiful (and less crowded) beaches was a disappointment and the rough sea was no fun.

Dear Lili,

Thank you and I appreciated your time to leave us a review.
Honestly i can not control the weather, i was just check on my weather forecast app (mostly 90 % accurate)on my phone and it was saying shower in the morning and after 9 am partly sunny but it was cloudy in whole day! And again i have no control about it.
About the choppy water i have no control about it as well.
And I do apologize that my crew was bit hard to communicate in English and I promise i will do extra training for them again. I wish to be on board with you guys but i was having family concern in the same day.
I’d like to offer you better day but seems like it was your last day for your holiday in Bali.
Again thank you and i promises to do better in future.

Sincerely,

Rocky
Manager

Cannot rate this charter more highly and would recommend it to anyone wanting a day out on the water.
Unfortunately Rocky was away for this charter, but Captain Wayan and his crew couldn’t have done anything more to make this the perfect day out. First stop was Manta Bay where we were lucky enough to snorkel with a Manta Ray. All snorkel equipment and towels were provided. Kadek (crew member) was wonderful in that he went into the water with us and guided us through the mass of other boats- allaying the fears of those of us who weren’t sure if we wanted to jump in the water. With a younger (9 year old) as part of the group he made sure he kept a close eye on us and didn’t get into any trouble. Next stop was Crystal Bay (Nusa Penida) - fantastic snorkeling with such clear water and reefs. My husband fell off the side of the boat - losing his expensive prescription sunglassses in the process. Crew were fantastic and kept diving until they found them - to great appreciation from us. We also tested the fantastic stereo system on board - blasting out some kiwi classics.
After one more stop for snorkeling we stopped on Nusa Lembongan for lunch and to release baby turtles which the kids loved.
Lunch stop was great and well priced for the remoteness of the location.
After one more snorkeling stop we headed back to the wharf - waterlogged, tired and extremely content with the day.
