IMPORTANT NOTE: Currently Gili Air pier is undergoing construction work. This means that some days Patagonia cannot dock at the jetty so will transfer customers on smaller boats to/from Bangsal harbour (Lombok)
Additionally, on days with especially low tides, Padang Bai is only serviced on the outbound morning trip. This ussally occurs for a few days each month and is predictable within a certain period. Bookings from Gili to Padang Bai made more than 3 months in advance may be subject to change as tidal predictions become less reliable.
