GOOD TIPS USING FAST BOAT IN SANUR:

1. Windproof jacket.

Bringing wind visor jacket might be a wise choice. It will be a windy trip because the boat quiet fast. Other option you can use a scarf.

2. Dark glasses.

Sometime it will be sunny day on the boat. Also water splash sometime come to passenger position. It depend on the wind direction. In this case i recommend you to bring your glasses. Dark glasses even better.

3. Seat Position.

If you can not tolerate to be shaken, better you choose seat position in the back side. Front side more stronger than back side. This straits facing Indonesia ocean. So, the waves sometime higher and strong. Mid day and afternoon trip usually more shaken up.

4. Short.

Wearing a short is a nice idea. Sanur port is not really a seaport. It just a beach. That’s why you will getting wet when reaching the boat.
