Established in 2006, Blue Water Express was the first fast boat to Gili with an emphasis firmly on safety, professionalism, and guests satisfaction. With a 100% safety record and over 80 staff based in both Bali and on the Gili Islands, all crew are fully qualified as well as having years of experience in navigating the waters around the Gili Islands and the Lombok Strait.

Blue Water Express offers daily departures from Serangan/ Padang Bai to Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Lombok, from Serangan to Lembongan and from Lembongan to the Gili Islands and Lombok, allowing you to cruise the ‘Golden Triangle’. The Gili Islands, are the picture perfect, Instagram irresistible tropical islands of which dreams are made; perfect white sand beaches backed by palm trees, the warm waters of the Indian Ocean teeming with marine life and not a vehicle in sight – the  only way to get around is by foot, bicycle or horse and carriage.

First hitting the water in 2017, the BWE IX has a capacity of 70 seats and takes passenger comfort to the next level. Powered by six 250 HP outboard engines, this is a high performance boat to get you to your destination quickly. The boat features a spacious sundeck on the roof, TV screens in the cabin and stand up toilet.  Blue Water Express VII has been the main vessel plying the route between Bali and the Gili islands. Six 250 HP outboard engines provide the power as you travel in the cabin or on the sundeck. Blue Water Express V can take 50 passengers and is powered by five 250 HP engines, and again passengers may choose between the cabin or soaking up the sun and the views on the sundeck.

*Please note that the port authorities require all boats to receive port clearance from Bangsal on Lombok, after departing from Gili Trawangan. We are not allowed to sail to Bali direct from Gili Trawangan.

Your safety is of paramount importance. To this end all of Blue Water Expresses boats are fitted with the following safety equipment:

  •  20 man life rafts, total 80 pax capacity.
  • EPIRB: Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacon. When immersed in water the EPIRB automatically sends an SOS signal via satellite to the authorities, informing name of vessel and precise location. Continues to send signal for up to three days.
  • SOLAS standard life jackets for all passengers and crew.
  • Full set of distress flares in accordance with regulations.
  • GPS Navigational system.
  • Marine VHF ship-to-shore radio.
  • 4 throw rings.
