Ocean Star Express

PLEASE NOTE: As of February 2015, Ocean Star has ceased all operations. Existing bookings will be transferred to Mahi Mahi fast boats. If you have any questions, please contact us.

The speed boat from Bali to Lombok and the Gilis have similar facilites and safety equipment, the main difference being the size and number of seats. Generally the larger fast boat covers the crossing from Bali to Lombok and Gili, although they will use the boat that best suits the number of passengers.  Usually the smaller boat covers the shorter crossing to Lembongan. This means that you never really know which boat you will travel on until you are boarding.

Each day they have a morning departure at 09:30 from Bali (Padang Bai) to Lombok, Gili Air and Gili Trawangan.  The return departs from Gili Trawangan at 11:30 arriving back in Padang Bai at 13:00. They also have an early morning fast boat departures from Lembongan  to Sanur.
