Just off the tiny isle of Moorea, which we’ll explore on our Isles, Atolls, and Pristine Corals: Southern Line Islands expedition in 2018, our recon team discovered a splendid place for our guests to snorkel with schools of rays and sharks.

No need to be scuba proficient to swim with these sharks and rays. Our recon videographer Justin DeShields captures some of the schooling action with a drone.
