There are many boats available from Lombok to Gili islands. We took a taxi from our hotel to Bangsal Harbour. Taxi dropped us outside the village by saying he is not allowed to drive inside. "Friendly" locals were there with donkeys and carts offering a lift to the port which is according to them is 5km away. Not true, you can walk to the boats and it takes 5 min maximum. We picked a normal local boat (by normal I mean what locals use, not tourists) which leaves every 45 min or so. Ticket price was USD 1 per person. It took us about 30 min to get to the island.
