These are well maintained vessels and the company is well organised. Pick up was on time and so was sailing. Seasickness tablets are offered to everyone and water and mints are available throughout the journey. The office at the port is clean and efficient with free tea and coffee whilst you wait and a snack bar.
We had atrocious sailing conditions to and from Gili Trawangan from Bali. Many people sick , a window blew out on the way there and the vessel flexed so much that the window catches would hold the windows shut. We were told that all further voyages were cancelled after ours that day.
The crew kept people calm, helped those who were sick, valiantly tried to keep the waves out of the dislodged window opening.
My only problem is that it’s really hot with the windows closed during a storm and whilst it looks like an aircraft interior including air vents, there doesn’t appear to be any air conditioning.
Other than that, we would highly recommend Blue Water Express

BlueWater express provided my wife and I (In our 50's) with a relatively smooth connection and travel between Bali and Lombok. The experience was punctual, well organized, well communicated from the time of ticket purchase up to the day of travel and professionally organized and run when on the boat.
We would thoroughly recommend travel with BlueWater Express as the boat is stable, well equipped with toilets, drinks and snacks, comfortable, rooftop area for viewing and the staff are always looking out for everyone to ensure they have an enjoyable trip.

Thank you BlueWater Express.

I have been on some very sketchy boats around Indonesia and have been on transport to the Gili islands before...BY FAR BlueWater Express is the absolute BEST experience. Transport pickup was right on time(nothing ever is), and then the crew was amazing.

We knew exactly how many stops were on the trip and around when we would be arriving. It was such a breeze compared to other trips. Would HIGHLY recommend for a safe and reliable ride. Hard to find something this quality, but they do a GREAT job.

Couldn't fault the trip from booking online, hotel collection and the trip. Staff onboard were friendly and helpful. Can't wait to do it again! Thanks
