Local marine wildlife in Bora Bora

Polynésie juillet 08(469)
We did swim with them !


  1. Wow! That's really amazing... What type of sharks are they, by the way? They look so mellow... I LOVED Polynesia... I'd love to go back again one day...

    1. They look to me like blacktip reef sharks, Carcharhinus melanopterus

  2. We also did the shark feeding, but in Moorea, where i actually petted stingrays too. i had a shark encounter during our time there -- i was by myself in the shallow reef, and this baby 5-ft shark (same size as me) scared me where my hair must've stood on end, except i was under water, of course, and couldn't. i was fearless at shark feeding, but to be facing one by myself was not my cup of tea at all!!!
