Diving in French Polynesia #04

THE TUAMOTU ARCHIPELAGO

Diving_in_French_Polynesia_#04_0With their typical configuration, the Tuamotu, matches lagoons encircled by a long barrier of coral. Communication with the ocean is through the passes, real fishways, whose depth and size vary according to the islands. It is at this point that diving is practiced in the Tuamotu. These are the only places in the world where you are evolving, certainly, in the middle of shoals of gray sharks (sometimes up to 200 individuals), dolphins, big white spikes, eagle rays, trevallies, napoleons and mantas. From November to March, it is not unusual to see a Mokaran (the great solitary hammer) hunt among the leopard skate squadrons.

  1. Joffrey, you took some great photos. We recently got back from French Polynesia and did a couple snorkeling excursions, it’s absolutely beautiful! We even were able to swim with the humpback wales, it was a once in a lifetime experience.
