We have first hand experience of our fast boat partners and over the past few years have seen a proven service record. The importance of this cannot be understated as there are many rogue operators between Bali, Lembongan, Lombok & The Gili Islands. Safety and service is compromised far too often with some boats being dangerously overloaded, and missing even the most basic safety equipment. Our fast boat partners all maintain a high level of safety and service, and have safety equipment on board that includes, life jackets for adults and children, life rafts, EPIRB, life ring, lights, GPS and VHF ship to shore radio.
