Well, we’re really not good photographers or videographers, but here are a few vignettes from our various snorkeling tours in the Astrolabe area. It really was some of the best snorkeling we’ve done in a while, hope it at least gives the flavor even if it’s not going to win any Oscars or Emmys.
On our next-to-last day at Bora Bora we ran back over to the southeast end of the lagoon and spent the night. In the morning we went over to the area where our friend Pete said the water had been so clear. There wasn’t much in the way of coral, but as we were snorkeling over a sand channel we saw a school (?, seems like “flock” may be more appropriate) of 24 spotted eagle rays swimming below us. And no one had a camera:( So, we spent an extra night and went back the next morning to see if we could find them again. Never came across the big congregation, but we did find a few.
