We had a wonderful experience on our Full day Island Hopping tour of Lembongan. We were picked up from our villa and dropped off at the fast boat in Sanur. After a quick trip we landed on Lembongan Island and were split into groups. We had one tour guide for our small group of 3, and we were looked after very well all day. Our tour guide was attentive to our needs, and took us through the various activities with a smile on his face. First we boarded a small boat and went snorkelling. The drop off point was carefully chosen so that we floated on the current to the pickup point, and the swimming wasn't too taxing. The coral shelf was vast, and the assorted marine life was amazing! best experience of our whole trip to Bali! On the way back to the beach we went for a banana boat ride that looked tame, but was a fun ride.
Lunch was served in a clean and friendly outdoor cafe area. It was a good selection of Balinese food including nasi goreng and noodles. After lunch we were taken over a bamboo bridge to a jetty in the mangroves and went kayaking. As there were 3 of us, our tour guide took one of us in a gondola, navigating the waterway with a bamboo pole. The tranquil environment of the mangroves was punctuated by much laughter as we made our way through the trees. The rest of the afternoon consisted of a tour of the island by vehicle, and we were able to stop at many vantage stops, including a lookout over the town, blowholes, and a beautiful sandy beach. We were dropped back at the fast boat at the end of the day.
I would recommend this trip to anyone, however the boarding of the boats is tricky, as you board directly from the beach.
Worst tour we have ever been on. Was not made with westerners in mind at all. We were put with a large Chinese group and were the only english speaking people there even though we selected a english group. The only english speaking guide ignored us the whole time, only giving instructions in Mandarin so we missed out on everyone, and then left the tour half way through leaving us with literally no one who spoke english. Excluding the terrible tour group, we only went to two islands, the first we only looked at a rock formation and then a private beach, the second we ate at. Certainly not island hopping. Waste of time and waste of money. Not happy at all.
