The state-run passenger line PELNI operates weekly sailings between Bali and Jakarta, Makassar and Balikpapan. Not luxurious but comfortable, the ship offers an alternative to flying and is a more leisurely form of travel. There are regular schedules and routes, all touching in at Jakarta as their main base.

Foreign cruise lines operate in Indonesian waters, though not regularly. A 40-passenger luxury cruise ship, the MV Island Explorer, offers trips to the eastern Indonesian islands from Bali part of the year and from Jakarta to Sumatera the rest of the year. There are also ferries between islands, though comfort may not be as desired.

For adventurous travellers, a ride on a Pinisi Bugis schooner is exciting.

Ferry Bali is connected to Java by a regular ferry service running between Gilimanuk and Banyuwangi. If you are taking the train or night bus from Jakarta, Bandung or Yogyakarta, travel first to Surabaya for the connection to Banyuwangi, where you board another bus for the final passage to Denpasar.
