Ra’iatea and Taha’a

Apr 16, 2018 - National Geographic Orion

After a fantastic previous day, we left Huahine Island early in the morning and set off for an adventure to Ra’iatea and Taha’a. We were able to visit the sacred site of Marae Taputapuatea at Ra’iatea in the morning. In the afternoon some of us went to a vanilla plantation on Taha'a and some of us spent a spectacular afternoon on our very own private island called Motu Mahaea.

A self confessed “animal nerd,” Chris falls under many titles: marine biologist, marine interpreter, dive master, science communicator, and naturalist. Chris was lucky enough to grow up on the East Coast of Australia, where there are no shortage of different coastal environments to explore. While growing up, his friends would be surfing while he would be under the waves, snorkel and mask on looking for fish and all the weird and wonderful creatures he couldn’t get enough of. This love of the ocean lead to him completing a Bachelor of Science in 2005.
