Sanur to Gili Air Destination Reviews

The checking in process was smooth and easy, the trip was ok, the crew was nice. However, I was going to Gili Air and out of the blue we were told that it was not possible, due to a heavy current, to dock there, so we went all the way to Lombok and then back to Gili Air in a smaller local speedboat, which somehow was more fit for the strong current than the big one.
