The boats departing from Padang Bai stop in varying order at Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Lombok (Bangsal) to drop off and pick up passengers before returning to Padang Bai. Note: If you are going back to Bali from Gili T, please be aware that the boat will usually visit the other islands and Lombok before sailing to Padang Bai.

Gili Meno is also serviced on morning departures from Bali. For Meno, the Eka Jaya boat moors about 150m offshore and a local pontoon is used to ferry passengers to/from the beach. A small extra free of 35.000IDR p.p. ($3) is levied by the locals for this service.
Departing Padang Bai at 09:00 (seasonally this trip goes via Lembongan, Penida and Ceningang before heading to Padang Bai) and 10:30, seasonally at 13:30 Servicing: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno*, Gili Air and Lombok Bangsal. (*Not serviced on the afternoon crossing - 35,000 IDR ($3) p.p. charge local Meno pontoon to the Eka Jaya mooring)
Later afternoon departures back from Gili to Bali allows more flexibilty for those wanting to enjoy every possible extra hour on the Gili islands.
The boats will only stop in the Gilis and Lombok long enough to unload and reload passengers. Arrival back in Padang Bai is at approx 13:00 and 17:30.
IMPORTANT: When arriving at Padang Bai from the Gili Islands, please ignore the many taxi drivers and hawkers present 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.
