Meet up with the other ship passengers at 8:00am this morning in Sanur, for a drive up the coast to the town of Amed where you’ll board the Katharina and meet the ship’s crew. Heading out you'll first cross the Lombok Strait, a very important ecological boundary, first described by Sir Alfred Russel Wallace, the British naturalist. He noticed that the flora and fauna of the islands to the west are home to Asiatic animal and plant species, whereas the islands to the east of that “line” have a greater similarity to species found in Australia. Making the first stop at one of the Gili Islands, just off the Lombok coast, enjoy a couple of hours of swimming, snorkeling, and beach-combing. In the late afternoon take a north-easterly course for the overnight passage to Sumbawa.
