Lots of people saying this boat is essentaly, a death trap! My experience was fine. Just go in with low expectations, the boat will be late but you’ve payed hardly anything compared to other boats. Locate the life jackets so you can grab one before everyone else and try to get on the boat first!

There wasn't enough space in the cabins, so about 8-10 people had to sit up on deck. It was better for my seasickness but I was scared to death a few times when the waves got a bit stronger. I have to say it was my first trip on a speedboat and probably everything was ok. However, you were not prepared to sit on top and get wet from the waves more often. We tried to protect our bags with the electronics but unfortunately this was a bit too late. I partially broke my cell phone. But because of the tight clothing and the fact that we got so extremely wet and the strong wind, I probably got kidney inflammation. On the positive side, I have to say that the crew were very relaxed and played music for us on deck, which made us feel more relaxed and almost in a party mood when the sun came out from time to time.
All in all, I have to say that they were punctual, which was a big plus, as many other boats didn't manage that and the communication on both boats wasn't good either. The seats inside were very cramped and there was no air conditioning and the toilet didn't work, which wasn't so nice either because it made it very difficult to go for 2 hours with the effort and without being able to drink anything.

Es war nicht genug Platz in den Kabinen wodurch ca 8-10 Leute oben auf Deck sitzen mussten. Für meine seekrankheit war es besser jedoch hatte ich ein paar mal lebensangst als etwas stärkere Wellen kamen. Ich muss sagen dass war meine erste Fahrt auf einen speedboot und wahrscheinlich war alles oke. Jedoch war man nicht vorbereitet darauf oben zu sitzen und somit von den Wellen häufiger nass zu werden. Wir haben versucht unsere Taschen mit der Elektronik zu schützen dies war jedoch leider etwas zu spät. Ich habe mein Handy zum Teil kaputt. Doch aufgrund der knappen Kleidung und dass wir so extrem nass geworden sind und der starke Fahrtwind habe ich wahrscheinlich eine Nierenentzündung bekommen. Als positiven Aspekt muss ich sagen die Besatzung war sehr entspannt und hat für uns an Deck Musik angemacht wodurch man dann selber auch entspannter wurde und auch schon fast eine Partystimmung aufkam wenn die Sonne auch mal zwischendurch raus kam.
Alles im allem muss ich sagen waren sie pünktlich als großer Pluspunkt immerhin haben das viele andere Bote nicht geschafft und die Kommunikation war auch auf beiden booten nicht gut. die Sitze innen waren sehr eng und keine Klimaanlage außerdem hat die Toilette nicht funktioniert was auch nicht so schön war denn dadurch hatte man große Schwierigkeiten 2h lang mit der Anstrengung und ohne etwas trinken zu können.

Pleasant. The boat journey was calm, relaxed. Left 20 min. later but we weren’t in a hurry. Keep in mind that you have to pay 10.000 p.p. leaving the pier in Padang Bai and 10.000 p.p. when you arrive at Gili Trawangan pier (in cash)
