Semaya One Fast boat
Semaya One fast boat started operating in 2012 from Sanur to the Gili Islands. Now they have a fleet of 4 fast boats and offer a variety of routes throughout the region. The main route is from Padang Bai to Lombok and the Gili Islands and is serviced by their biggest two boats Royal Semaya and Semaya Romantica.
This Indonesian owned and managed company is based in Bali and has recently gained a positive reputation as one of the more reliable local fast boat companies. The boats in their fleet have similar facilites and safety equipment, the main difference being the size and number of seats. Generally the management will choose which boats they are going to use depending on the number of passengers they need to transport on each trip daily. This means that you never really know which of their boats you will travel on until you are boarding.
Each day they have a morning departure from Bali to Lombok and the Gili islands. This boat turns around almost immediately after droppping passengers en route on Lombok, Gili Air and Gili Trawangan, returning to Padang Bai (Bali). Formerly they also serviced routes from Bali to Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan departing from Sanur, however these have been suspended until further notice.
