We have meandered our way to the south pass of Fakarava, and despite the gnarly anchoring conditions, the experience is more than worth the angst. Yesterday, with our friends from Oso Blanco, we float snorkeled the pass on the incoming tide (to do it on the outgoing would not be too smart!). The flow is about 4 knots, and you are effortlessly conveyed across and endless expanse of stunning coral, fish, and anything else within the range of the 50 foot vertical visibility. Jack counted a bunch of 42 sharks(!) - unfortunately it was my turn to drive the pick-up boat, but I saw 6 on my float, but nothing bigger than about 6 feet. There was also a smaller one who visited me while I was encouraging barnacles to leave the underside of Mulan - the Black-tipped Reef Sharks are rather curious, and tend to sneak up behind you for a closer look, which can be a tad disconcerting the first couple of times. There are two small pensions here at the pass - one with a dive shop. Anyone into scuba diving and a remote idyllic getaway should check it out. If the snorkeling is anything to judge by, a scuba dive through the pass must be stunning. Cheers, Team Mulan
