First line through Benoa Port,  daily cruises available from Benoa Port in Bali to their monstrous pontoon which floats off the north western shore of Nusa Penida and other cruise lego at north of Lembongan. The cruise also offer watersport activities centred on the pontoon. The second way is daily fast boat transfer in Sanur Port, some offers pick and drop off service. The trip send you to Nusa Lembongan or Nusa Penida, depend on your destinations. The exact departure and arrival point on this way depends on the tide. More private trip, visitor can charter the fast boat. As the common schedule, the crossing start at 07.00 AM from Sanur and close at 16.00 afternoon. If you are in east of Bali area, daily fast boat service available depart from Banjar Bias Port, same port for traditional ship and in Padang Bai.

The third is by using ‘jukung’ traditional ship equipped with machines. The time needed quite longer than fast boat but you will get new experience on this ship. Finally, if you willing to bring your own car or motorcycle from Bali Island, better to take ferry ship in Padang Bai Harbor. Unfortunately, the trip is only once in a day.
