As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.
A zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland, with landings taking place at piers (dry landings) as well as on beaches (wet landings). Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and can-do attitude is all you need.
This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending the majority of your time above board in the open air.
Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.
Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavourable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.
Due to the size of the yachts, sound carries easily from one side to the other and can wake your fellow travellers. If you’re planning to have a late night, it’s a good idea to head into town and experience the local night life.

The Gili Islands is a fantastic destination and one which is wholly suited to a live-aboard sailing trip. The diversity of the islands ensures there is something to suit everyone, from the frenetic night life on Gili T, coupled with the superb Turtle population, through to the deserted islands of the south. The clear waters and abundant corals ensure a myriad of fish life! The seas here boast some of the best snorkeling in the region. The flexible nature of the itinerary also ensures the order can be adjusted to suit local weather conditions. I would have been extremely happy to spend another week on the boat!! For me personally this is a great tag on to one of the other tours in the region.

This was my first sailing trip and it was really amazing I can just recommend it. The Gilis are absolutely beautiful Islands. The staff on board made everything to make this trip be a beautiful experience with lots of good food.
