Inese, you should contact your boat company to enquire as no one on this forum can answer your question at this time.

Ah, I was mainly thinking of the sea conditions as Amed is forecast to get 4-6 metre waves today and there was uncertainty about the boats.

Hi Inese,

forget about the boats. Keep an eye on the news. Recent news has implied that the authorities were evacuating the Gilis after yesterdays earthquake.
