It’s very easy to get here from Gili Trawangan or Gili Meno, you just need to choose your style of boat transport.
Island Hopping Boat - Slow Gili Style
There is a boat called the Island Hopper that runs twice a day, once at 9:00 am and then again at 4:00 pm. The boat takes half an hour to get here and costs only 40,000 IDR per person. Relax and take in the island life, as everyone from backpackers to locals returning from Lombok, use these boats to commute between Lombok and the three Gilis. Speed is not necessarily of the essence, but they are a reliable, affordable transport option. This boat gives you a chance to soak in the true Indonesian boating experience, highly recommended, if you are not in a hurry.
Once you are in the Harbour in Gili Air you can just jump in a horse cart and for 100,000 IDR they will bring you (and your luggage) to Manta Dive. Or you can walk 10 minutes to Manta Dive heading right from the main harbor and following the beach road.
Public Speed Boat - Luxury Gili Experience
There is also a speedboat option now between the Gili Islands. The boat runs every full hour between the islands from 9 am until 4 pm daily. The price is 100,000 IDR per ticket. This is a speedy way to cruise between the islands in a sleek boat. Max time 15 minutes between any of the islands and it leaves on time to Gili Meno, Air, or Lombok destinations. This boat does not go to Bali, only between the Gili Islands.
The speed boat will drop you on the pier down by the main harbor, a 10 minute walk or 5 minute horse cart journey from Manta Dive.
