Outbound journey was a total shambles. Picked up from our Ubud hotel by a minibus with no seat belts and a suicidal driver determined to do his best impression of Lewis Hamilton. Arrived at Padang and were told the Bluewater boat needed fixing so they...More

Hi, I am planning to go Bali to Lombok on 30th June, 2017. What is the sea weather forecast on that time?. I found some review saying sea weather is beat rough in may 2017 and there were huge wave. Please can any one tell me should I go by Fas boat or took a flight? Is ther any free transportation from Kuta area for Padang bay -Lombok trip?

Hi, Thanks. Can you check My booking is not for tomorrow. its for 30th June, 2017. One more thing, though I have booked the fast boat, Is sea condition is calm on that period or it is bumpy and will have big waves?
Hi what is it like getting on and off the boat for a disabled person? (Type of MS- able to walk, go up and down steps using hand rail however struggle with balance, muscle strength, stability and generally cannot carry on weight in any climbing situation or manage big steps-need to be able to use something to lean on). I've seen pictures and it looks like graduated steps with a hand rail will be ok to get up and down but I've seen people walking round on the side edges of the boat- this would be no good with the balance issue. Can you just stay on top deck and how do you get up there? It's difficult to explain but imagine a frail old lady with the spatial awareness and balance of someone who is extremely drunk. Any tips or advice or explanation of how it works would be really appreciated, having a bit of a nightmare trying to make Rhys trip disability friendly
