I was researching companies for a while and found Bluewater Express to have quite a few number of positive reviews so booked with them. Quite expensive but hey it's our lives so I didn't mind all too much. The journey from Seminyak to Gili T was great! Upon check in at our hotel, there was already a fax confirmation from... More

Was extremely impressed with the journey from Ubud to Gili T - even though we realized when we got to Bali that they are expensive! We paid double the price than what we could have got in Bali! No boats were running from Gili T to Bali so Bluewater cancelled our trip. They emailed me at 10:30pm on the evening... More

Dear Holly, Glad to hear your trip to Gili was good! But yes, very unfortunate that all boats were cancelled (by the port authorities) February 9th and 10th due to some of the worst weather we have seen in more than 10 years. Thankfully it has now passed and everything is back to normal. Rest assured your refund is in... More

We booked a round trip from our hotel in Kuta to Gili Trawangan and a return to our hotel on Sanur Beach. Pickup at our hotel was on time and in a nice van, the departure area was well organized. Staff was courteous and competent. The trip was made on schedule, the boat was in good condition and well operated.... More

My daughter did some volunteer work for the ponies on the Gili Islands, and BlueWater Express kindly donated the boat trips for all volunteers. The boat was clean, fast and safe. On our return to Bali, it was raining, and all travellers were provided with an umbrella to stay dry! BlueWater Express also provided free hotel shuttle service. Our hotel... More

It's a shame that the few bad reviews about the boat being bumpy and about fast boats being unsafe in Jan/Feb probably discourages people from booking. We almost decided to fly due to them. Essentially though they have a 100% safety record and do many daily trips, so we went with it. Very pleased we did. Blue Water Express for... More

Used Bluewater express twice, now not the cheapest, but have to say very professional. Picked up on time free coffee quick book in system, boat clean and tidy crew excellent, left and arrived on time. On return again all wet well and according to timetable with free transfer to Sanur. Excellent service well done highly recommend.

We read tons of horror stories and reviews on fast boats and finally decided to go with blue water express, and we were impressed! They picked us up from our hotel, the driver was great, everything was very organized and although it was a little sketchy getting on and off the boat, the ride was smooth and when the boat... More

To those of you who like me was a bit in doubt of how to book travel from Ubud in Bali to Gili Trawangan, I can really recommend travelling with Blue Water Express fast boats. I can't tell if the other fast boats companies are better or worse, because I haven't tried them, but we travelled with Blue Water Express... More
