We had a brilliant day on the boat diving off the top was huge fun for my children. Katie and Rich are great fun and very chilled. I would recommend the party boat to anyone wanting to experience a boat trip that they will always remember.

Not impressed with south sea nomads. We had booked the party boat a few months in advance. Very last minute they canceled on us, saying that a large group missed their boat to Gili and there were not enough people. However, they had also repeatedly contacted my friend weeks before asking him to switch boats/days..so who knows. We also tried... More

Great laid back people that make it comfortable for everyone to be social and fun on their boat. Unlimited beer to buy just tally as you grab one, lots of jumping in spots, snorkelling and great way to meet people. Was so much fun :-)

I'm not usually one for party boats... But I got invited to this one with a whole bunch of friends also going. We had a great time, I was totally wrong about party boats... Well this one in particular! Katie and Rich looked after us and took us to some great snorkel spots (with lots of turtles) and then to... More

The boat is such a great way to see the Gili Islands and Katie and the crew are super friendly. Drinks are really reasonably priced and it's a great way to meet other people - which is sometimes hard when you're in a couple. Sunsets are amazing in Gilis and seeing one over the still clear waters from the boat... More

I have been on a few party boat sunset trips with these guys and they're excellent, you get on a boat with a bunch of cool strangers and by the end of a beautiful day snorkelling and swimming and eating noodles and drinking you're all best mates. Often the fun continues when you finally get back on land after watching... More
