Back to Paradise - Fakarava
05 October 2015 | Fakarava, south pass
Ia Orana. We are back to my very favorite diving place on earth, the south Pass of Fakarava. We sailed from Tahit on Monday afternoon and had a good sail although a bit bumpy, arriving here yesterday afternoon. We were very lucky and arrived at 3PM when the tide was slack, the only good and safe time to enter the pass. It is so beautiful here that is difficult to describe. We were very tired but very excited to anchor in the same location as we did 4 years ago. As soon as we dropped anchor the welcoming committee came to greet us. 4 black tip sharks were the leaders of the group. Today they were close by and every scrap of food that hit the water was consumed promptly. We spent the day cleaning up the boat and went for a superb snorkeling this afternoon. The sad part is to see all the bleaching in the coral that we didn't notice when we were here 4 years ago and there is much less fish. I am sending this via SSB radio. I am sorry Anna but I can't sent photos. I will say good night and Aloha to all. We are all well and happy to be here.
