Anchorages... Ua Pou, Marquesas. May 16, 2010



Hakahetau Bay, (hock-ah-hay-tao) with a backdrop of seven vertical spires, "powerful giants that reign over the landscape", according to Joe Russell author, "Exploring the Marquesas Islands". Arguably the most striking anchorage in the world.

The tallest spire, Oave, is over 3,900 feet and was shrouded in cloud for the time we were there.
