“Fast and comfortable transfer to Gili Air”
Review of Bluewater Cruises

Bluewater Cruises
Reviewed 6 April 2018

This is the best fast boat transfer to/from Gili Islands. The trip was 1.5 hours, very smooth as the boat is big and was air-conditioned for comfort.
The team were professional and friendly.
The waiting area/office has free wifi and plenty of old, bottled water.
This trip does depart from Padang Bai which is around 1.5 hours from Denpasar, however, the alternative, closer port, is a much rougher transfer from Gilis and takes 3 hours so we would definitely go back to Bluewater Express and travel to/from Padang Bai for comfort and speed.

All in all this was an amazing trip. The boat and our cabin was great. Food was also plenty and delicious although only local.
The local staff on the boat was incredibly friendly and happy to change the itinerary to better satisfy our needs.

The trip itinerary is really amazing with excursions we'll never forget!

The cruise however doesn't have a director or someone onboard that is responsible. There is very little management, which sometimes would've been nice.

Also it was two of the guests birthdays while we were on board and management was aware of it but nothing happened, regardless of the requests. A little dessert or something would've been a nice gesture.

Most important, this is not a diving liveaboard and should never be booked as such. Scuba is available but unsupervised, and general equipment old and outdated.

We did the 7 days cruise to Komodo and it was simply amazing and in the best snorkeling we ever did. The crew was lovely and helpful. You will eat more than enough. It was local and delicious. It's great to have 7 days, you will feel disconnected from the buzzing world and at peace in the middle of the sea. Quiet and contemplative moment. You are at your own pace even if it's a group. We totally recommend blue water cruise and we will remember this week for ever.

My family and I went on the Sunda island cruise offered by Blue Water Cruises and it was definitely the highlight of our holiday!! The views were breathtaking, the crew so helpful, and was really impressed by the ship and the story behind it. The environment on board was lovely and very relaxed. Every day was something new to discover, explore and learn!
