After the Gamier Islands, we sailed through the Tuamotus from the southeast corner through the long string of isolated atolls. We enjoyed prolific underwater life and very healthy fish stocks, and had some of our most amazing underwater encounters to date. Watching the red snapper spawning in Tahanea, swimming through a wall of shark in Fakarava, drifting through reef passes with manta are just a few of the marine highlights. The atolls range from uninhabited to small villages, and each holds it own unique flavour. It has to be said that the Tuamotus is what Pacific cruising is all about — pristine anchorages throughout dozens of atolls within easy sailing distances from each other. If you want peace and tranquillity surrounded by some of natures best, Tuamotus is the destination.
