Sumbawa is around 8hours away by Car and FastBoat. And lots of waiting for all the transports. But currently one of the safest routs and only way to not spend lots of money on extra luggage cost in flying. Since we have been a group of 5 people. All with super heavy spearfishing gear and filming + camera equipment we decided that we will take the car route which is Island hopping. We started at 6 in the Morning and met at the KFC in Sanur, we got picked up by the boat companies private car so we can fit all our gear in and don’t be in the way of other travelling customers that would complain that we take to much spaces away, we almost didn’t fit in.

We woke up at 6am and had a quick small breakfast so we have energy for the whole day in the boat and for the diving. Packed up the truck with all the bouys and spearguns and we sit in the back of the pick up and went for a ride to our location where the boatman was waiting for us. It was decided the night before that we are not going to go super hard out on the first day so we went to a Reef fishing spot where we hoped to find some snappers and Maori seaperch/ Spanish Mackrel / Trevallies.
Packed the Pick-up-truck and off we went to Maluk which is 20 minutes drive of the hotel to our boatman. Loaded up the boat and we headed for some bigger pelagic.

Day 4 Motorbike Madness
As the night finished we packed up our bags for departure on the next morning at 6:30am. Thats how few days spend in a magical spot ended up being a super fun trip , with spectacular views , stories, fun time and of course strong new friendships from another side of the world.
