Which fast boat do you mean?

When people refer to the fast boat to Gilis they are usually referring to the fast boats from Bali. I know Perama do a boat direct from Senggigi but I believ it is about 9am.

It is already dark here at 7pm. You would not be able to get a boat at that sort of time. If you take the public boats from Bangsal which cost about $1 and take 30-45 minutes they stop running about mid afternoon. So you do need to be arriving earlier in the day.

it is a fast boat our hotel is sending to pick us up. Our hotel from Gili T. We have arranged a private transfer with them, pickup at airport and boat across to Gili T. I just wanted to know what the waters would be like in the evening. Also, how long is this type of fast boat from lombok to Gili T?

I have only ever done the public boats from Bangsal. Which take 30 -45 minutes depending on which island you are going to.

You dont say where the hotel's fast boat is picking you up? Bangsal, Senggigi or other. If from Senggigi I would imagine even in a "fast" boat it would take longer than the public boat from Bangsal. Freo knows more about the boats in Senggigi so hopefully she will answer.

Several of the hotels on Gili T offer a speed boat service from Teluk Nara to Gili T. Teluk Nara is about a 50 minute drive from the airport and is close to Bangsal. The speed boat across to the island will take about 15 minutes max. At 7 pm the wind and waves are usually lower than in the afternoons so the trip across to the island should be quite smooth.
