    This image has everything I loved about French Polynesia! Pristine, remote islands and an abundance of marine life. Seeing a healthy population of sharks is sadly a thing of the past in many areas around the world, but certainly not here! Blacktip reef sharks (and several other species) frequent these waters, and guarantee memorable encounters!

    This is one awesome perspective, Hannes! I love seeing the thriving environment under the surface of the water while being able to see how close the shore is to this shark population. My favorite detail is seeing the dorsal fins in the background from the other sharks. Simply awesome!
