The buffet lunch is open on the air-conditioned deck for about 2.5 hours; when it closes, coffee and tea continue to be available for another hour. Starting just before midday, the first of three 1-hour tours to the island depart from the pontoon — if you’re interested in wandering the narrow, colorful streets of Nusa Lembongan, just hop on the boat and go. Explore on foot, admiring the island’s white-sand beaches, cliffs, Balinese architecture and views of Mt Agung.
When your time in the water comes to an end, rinse off if you wish with a fresh-water shower on the pontoon. Then, after a head count to make sure everyone is on board, make your back to Bali on the catamaran, listening to live music during the 1-hour cruise. Your tour ends with drop-off at your Bali hotel.
