The Tuamotu Islands,
northeast of Tahiti, is the largest chain of atolls in
the world and belongs to French Polynesia, with
76 islands and atolls in the centre of the Pacific
Pure adrenaline is pass diving or "pass flying"
with a current from six knots (11 km/hr) on an incoming
tide. The main attraction of pass
dives are the sharks. What an experience to fly by several
hundreds sharks in Tiputa Pass in Rangiroa! Tiputa Pass was for
sure one of the best dives I have ever done. Descending
into the deep blue clear water, on the drop
off around 500 sharks hovering in the current.
Unbelievable such a moment! Drifting through the pass
and flying into a group of over 40 mating grey sharks.
What a dive!
Also the drop offs outside the atolls are
stunning. Beautiful coral gardens with a lot of
butterfly fish, sometimes eagle ray, sting ray,
turtle, napoleon fish are there to meet but definitely, on
every dive SHARKS!
