Corona Cutter Express

Following months of lockdown Lombok and The Gili Islands are finally opening up to visitors. Blue Water Express are testing the water in an attempt to get a regular service going between Bali and the Gilis. For the next few weeks they will be operating on mondays and fridays from Serangan to Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Bangsal harbour. This service is likely to operate until the end of August.  After that more regular services are expected to resume.

The boat will depart Serangan at 11:00 arriving in Bangsal at 13:30, Gili Air at 13:50 and Gili Trawangan at 14:20.  The return trip will depart from Gili Air at 14:00, Gili Trawangan at 14:45 and from Bangsal at 15:15 arriving back in Serangan harbour at 17:30.

Rapid test

All passengers departing from Serangan harbour will need to provide proof that they have been tested for Covid 19 in the previous 14 days and received a negative result.  If not they will need to be tested on site while waiting to depart.

A rapid test facility has been set up to test anyone that need testing. Results are available within 20 minutes. If you need a rapid test at checkin you should arrive 90 minutes before the scheduled departure time. The test will cost IDR350,000 and remains valid for 14 days.

If you do not need a rapid test then you should arrive 30 minutes before departure.

All pasengers are required to use a face mask at all times during checkin, testing, boarding and while on board the boat.

Hotel transfers are availalble for additional charges however we recommend taking a taxi by using the Grab app to get to Serangan Harbour. This will be the cheapest way to do it. Once at Serangan harbour there are clear signs to follow to get to the Blue Water Express office for checkin.

Hotel Transfers

Hotel transfers are not included and we recomend simply using the Grab app to arrange a cheap transfer to Serangan harbour. Alternatively there are plenty of taxis to use at the moment and traffic is light.  If you still want to have a transfer arranged with Blue Water Express just fill in your hotel details during the booking process and you will receive a quote within 24 hrs.
