MOOREA SHARKS & RAYS

September 15, 2016

Our week in Moorea was nothing short of amazing. In amongst hiking the lush green valleys, chasing waterfalls and kayaking in the crystal clear water, we took some time to explore the nearby shallow lagoon just off shore from our place on Sunset Beach.
 

We jumped in a tinny and headed out to a calm and clear spot within the lagoon. We tied our boat up to a buoy and watched from above as black tip reef sharks and sting rays swam around our boat.

 
It is common to swim freely with these guys in Moorea so we decided to jump in and explore. As soon as we were in the water the rays were coming right up to us. We were surrounded and it was a pretty strange environment to be in as they brushed past us inquisitively and even hung out on our backs and shoulders. After a little while we got more comfortable and it was easy to see they were happy for us to be in their home with them.

 
We soon were swimming freely above, below and alongside these rays as they followed us around playfully. We spent a few hours in the water getting to know these amazing creatures.

 

The sharks were more confident when we were out of the water and on the boat. They like to whip around and cruise on the surface while we watch from above. They were happy though for us to swim closely behind or beside them but as opposed to the rays they prefer a bit of distance.

Moorea is home to the most amazing sea life most of which are very close to shore, making it easy to explore and admire. Spend some time beneath the surface if you are on this beautiful island.
