Enjoying the spirits of Tahiti
We circled around a ship wreck on the way up from the last shark dive in Beqa Lagoon. I tagged along at the end of the group to get this without divers in front of me. The head of the dive shop said that the sharks use this as a nursery.
Bull Sharks in Beqa Lagoon - this was my first experience diving with sharks. Scary, but after calming down, you get a sense for how graceful and powerful they are. Thanks PG for adding this extra excursion.
Butterfly fish in Coral Gardens, Taha'a - another snapshot taken on the drift snorkel excursion. It was so incredible and effortless to just let the current pull you along while you marveled at all the colorful fish and coral passing by.
