Warning, cheap tickets
Island transfers in Bali are suffering from heavy reductions in ticket prices by locally owned and operated fast boat companies, some are even operating without a boat and simply transferring you to the best available price on any boat on your day of travel.
These discounted prices are coming at a cost, namely safety, equipment, boat maintenance and overloading. Many of these vessels are dangerous and extremely unseaworthy, leading to accidents at sea or prior to departures. These include vessels sinking, breaking apart structurally and even catching fire. Overloading is also of great concern, the lack of safety standards & equipment or insurance for passengers is a big problem which local authorities are not addressing or treating seriously.
All boats listed here are Fast and Safe. We have been operating the very first fast boat and promoting in Bali since 2006 incident free, with majoratively western owners with years of experience in the industry. All of our recommended boats are maintained to the highest level with service and safety being paramount.
This is why boats like Super Scoot have been awarded –
“Indonesia’s Leading Cruises Operator” for the past 3 consecutive years’ 2011/2012/2013. And “Indonesia’s Industry Leader”
Please do not base your booking decision on price alone, remember you get what you pay for, if your offered a price that seems too cheap, then there is most definitely a catch.
