SOS Getting to Gili T now

Hi there, I'm supposed to be in Gili T on Saturday but all the fast boats are cancelled. Some are saying even the slow boats are cancelled is this true? I know flying is an option but then are the boats from Lombok to Gili T cancelled too?

Please help!

The regular slow ferries are running. Flights today are fully booked and may well be for the next few days. You have a better chance getting to Gili Trawangan from Lombok it is only a short boat ride. However I know boats were not meant to be running yesterday till 1pm. One girl did post that she took the public boat from Gili Air to the mainland before that though. Good luck.

Lex P, hi

In this situation I'd suggest to check if your insurance covers situation like this: inability to reach destination due to the natural factors. All boats are cancelled and as a result flights are fully booked...

Lombok to Gili is very short distance, and protected waters. Compared with the 80kms of open seas from Bali. You stand a better chance getting to Gili t from Lombok mainland. if you can get a flight.

So far the large truck ferry is still running, but that could change. I imagine this to be a dreadful crossing in high seas, likely to take longer than the normal 4-6 hours. Not something I'd contemplate .. Gili t isn't worth it under those conditions
