Greetings from Bora Bora,
This is our second visit to Bora Bora on this voyage and it was well worth a second look. The weather, while still not ideal, was much better and it reinforced to us why this is one of the most beautiful of all the Society Islands.
We overnighted in this port, allowing us to go on a six-hour-long catamaran ride and snorkeling tour where we visited the Coral Gardens, a vast area of gorgeous coral reef. The fish were more amazing than any we have seen on such an adventure. We swam with the black-tipped reef sharks, which were bigger than any we have seen at 5’ to 7’ in length and more plentiful. You can see them in a brief feeding frenzy when our captain threw chum overboard. Awesome. The manta rays were huge and friendly as well.
The water was warm, clear and the colors were surreal. I hope you enjoy the photos which I will share in two different posts. Keep checking back.
We are off to Raiatea next, but that will be in a subsequent post I will offer up later today. Remember to check “OLDER POSTS” so you don’t miss any of the beauty of this part of God’s creation.
Until next time, God Bless you all.
Jud and Vicki
