Eka Jaya fast boats started operating a fast boat to Gili and Lombok in October 2008. Since then they have established themselves as one of the best budget fast boat operators, offering multiple departures on their large purpose built fast boats from Bali to Gili Islands. They take safety and service very seriously and their staff are well trained, all this should make your journey as comfortable, fast and safe as possible.
They operate from Padang Bai to Lombok, Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan. They have 3 large, new and fully equipped international standard fast boats offering a choice of multiple daily departures between Padang Bai and the Gili Islands. Free Hotel transfers are included from most South west Bali locations, Ubud and Candidasa, EXCEPT on their seasonal 11am Padang Bai departure.
For Padang Bai departures a free hotel pickup is included from set pick-up points in the following areas: Nusa Dua, Tanjung Benoa, Jimbaran, airport, Kuta, Seminyak, Kerobokan, Canggu, Sanur, central Ubud and Candi Dasa. For specific information on the pick-up points and times please check out the Boat info pages above.
IMPORTANT: Pickup cannot be provided on the 11am departure from Padang Bai to the Gili Islands. Other areas close to those above may also be included depending on the address of your hotel. For areas outside the free hotel transfer zone, additional charges will apply, and these are payable on the day you travel.
NEW: Eka Jaya 26 is a 210 seat fast boat departing daily from Serangan Harbour to Lombok and the Gili Islands, via Nusa Lembongan.
They also have daily fast boat departures to Ceningan Island, (also covers Nusa Lembongan) from both Padang Bai and Serangan. Full safety equipment onboard, including life jackets and large life rafts, toilet, TV, spacious roof sundeck.
IMPORTANT note for Bali arrivals: When arriving at Padang Bai from the Gili Islands, please ignore the many taxi drivers and hawkers present on the pier and proceed to your free drop service which will be waiting in the main square about 20m from the jetty. Only follow instructions by Eka Jaya staff in official uniform, holding signs which say "Eka Jaya Shuttle".
You may need to be proactive in asking for clear directions from them. This can be an uncomfortable situation for some customers, but unfortunately Eka Jaya are unable to prohibit local drivers from coming on to the jetty in this manner.
A special Island Hopping ticket is available for those wishing to travel from Bali to the Gili Islands with a stopover on Nusa Lembongan or Ceningan included. This allows you to depart from Serangan in south Bali or Padang Bai in east Bali and hop off on Lembongan/Ceningan for a couple of days (1 night minimum) before continuing to one of the Gili Islands. You can also do it the other way around, from the Gili's to Bali via Lembongan.
Use the search box above to check availability and select your island hopping tickets from among the results (usually further down the list or on page 2-3 if searching one way). Once you have made your booking, we will send you immediate e-tickets. Eka Jaya will also confirm within 48hrs.
Please reply to them in a quick email regarding the desired hop off in Lembongan/Ceningan and the date you wish to continue to your final destination. They will then make sure this is organized at no further charge. For photos of the fast boats and more, see boat info.
