French Polynesia - February 2019
Everyone's heard of Tahiti. A good place to visit in the middle of winter. After one night in Tahiti we flew off to Rangiroa for three nights at a resort on the atoll, then another flight to Fakarava took us to a liveaboard for a week of diving. Though the weather was pretty rough for a couple of days, we didn't lose any dives. Had some memorable drift dives through some of the passes and saw plenty of sharks, dolphins, huge schools of fish and a couple of manta rays. Didn't get any great photos of the schools of sharks, but they will remain in my memory.

Here's a short video with some underwater action and above water as well. Nothing fancy, it's still a work in progress.
