Anchorages... Fakarava, Tuamotus, June 8, 2010


Anthem anchored inside the south pass at Fakarava Atoll, Tuamotus
June 2010

Over the past eighteen months we've anchored in some pretty amazing places and met some pretty amazing people, including single-handed sailor, Jack, aboard Anthem (Cabo Rico 38).
We "flew" with Jack through the pass on an outgoing tide just minutes after we dropped the hook and I took this shot.

I should explain... the south pass of Fakarava Atoll teams with sharks (mostly friendly) and the most incredible array of exotic fish. As the tide rushes in and out through the narrow passes into the lagoons of the coral atolls in the Tuamotus, divers and snorkelers drift through with a sense of flying over the coral. It's truly out of this world.

Each week when we can wrangle a wifi connection we'll post an anchorage shot from the past. Hope you'll enjoy revisiting some of the most amazing anchorages with us.
