Flag of French Polynesia  , Society Islands,
Monday, February 14, 2011

This was the nicest day of the program so far.  We snorkeled in three locations in the morning.  First we were in waist deep water with stingrays and black-tipped sharks circling us.  Then we went outside the reef where we could see dozens of black-tipped sharks and even a lemon shark 40 feet below us on the bottom.  Lastly -- after a delicious lunch on a private motu -- we did a drift snorkel in beautifully sifted sunlight and clear water where we saw dozens of fish species and lots of sea urchins.  In the late afternoon we heard a fascinating lecture from Mark Eddowes, a professor of anthropology from New Zealand, on life in Polynesia before the arrival of Captain Cook.
