Sven-Olof Lindblad is in the South Pacific right now leading a reconnaissance trip to seek out never-before-offered experiences and ultimate snorkel and dive sites for guests on our five new 2018 South Pacific & French Polynesia expeditions.
The isle of Rangiroa’s lagoon is so massive that the island of Tahiti could fit inside of it. This protected space serves as a vast nursery for sharks and large schools of fish.

A nine-foot dolphin came to get a look at our recon team and, apparently deciding we were a fun bunch, decided to hangout and swim with us for 20 minutes.
During an afternoon on Makatea we met with a necklace maker and her lovely son. Coming to these islands and interacting with locals in mutually rewarding ways is a highlight.
We encountered a large group of snapper while diving in Rangiroa’s lagoon.
