Scoot Fast Cruises commenced operating in Bali in 2004, providing a service from Sanur to Nusa Lembongan. Originally the idea was to give a fast commuter boat service direct to the island, targeting people who found boat charter too expensive or the local boat just too slow. With over 40 years’ experience in tourism and passenger ferries in Australia, the Principal had a sound background and could see the potential for such a service.
Initially, Scoot I operated twice a day to Nusa Lembongan and was providing a basic transfer service. It soon became clear from increased demand that more departures were required, and with this goal, Scoot II entered service in 2006. Scoot II quickly increased passenger capacity and reduced traveling time to just 30 minutes from Sanur Beach to Nusa Lembongan. As January 2017, Scoot Fast Cruises remains the only company to operate from Sanur to Lombok and the Gili Islands.
As interest grew in traveling to the Gili Islands, Scoot Fast Cruises opened a new beachside office and exclusive apartments there in 2009. We now have additional offices on Sanur, Nusa Lembongan, Lombok (Senggigi), Gili Trawangan, Gili Air, and Padang Bai. We also have multiple
accommodation options in Nusa Lembongan too. Our services have evolved to meet our customer’s demand and now include snorkeling, various water activities, and island tours.
As of January 2017, our Scoot Fast Cruises fleet is 7 boats strong. This includes the pride of our fleet – a 55 passenger Catamaran that provides our passengers with a new level of comfort and enjoyment. Scoot Fast Cruises has also added a glass-bottom boat and speed boat to support our island tours on Nusa Lembongan. Please refer to our ‘Fleet’ page for more information.
Scoot Fast Cruises is an industry leader here in Bali. Our team continues to strive for excellence, and we expect to expand again in the coming year. With our devotion to the tourism industry in Bali and the surrounding islands, we are your first choice for safe and comfortable travel.
