Gili Islands to Bali Destination Reviews

The ticket lady at the counter changed us to a different boat that we did not book. The ferry was supposed to take 2 hours as mentioned on the ticket but ended up taking 4.5 hours. We spent a long time waiting for the ferry after the scheduled time. Not good enough!

Check in was easy, departure 30min past schedule & arrival with 1h delay since we did 3 stops to pick up more pax. Boat itself came with decent legroom comparing to others, but it was unbearably hot inside. A/C was barely working, and windows can't be opened. Avoid if you can't stand excessive heat, but it wasn't the worst experience around here.

We left almost an hour late from Gili T. The onboarding was not orchestrated very well. No security explanation at all, which seemed necessary the way this ferry was moving. The seating was good.

Left at time, arrived 30 minutes before we were supposed to which was a nice suprise! Very nice staff who helped with bags.

Ferry Speedboat, Golden Queen Fast Boat, Dec 23, 2022
Really dangerous boat, alot of waves hit the sides of the boat and sometimes it looked like the boat was going to capsize. The safety when the boat would capsize is also really poor, small windows that cant be opened and small doors. Eventually we were close to Padang Bai but it stopped several times bevore getting there. There was no communication why the boat stopped.

All went well

As someone who is sea sick and incredibly nervous I was very hesitant I’m getting this boat. However I was pleasantly surprised, the boat was on time and half full, the sea wasn’t too choppy and so it was an ok experience! Very glad I got this bigger boat, rather than the little speed boats which are downright dangerous!
