Sailors come to Fakarava to dive. The world’s most secret scuba spot is a 1,000km² lagoon, on which 1,000 lucky locals fish and play.
The mile-wide Garuae Pass welcomes sailors into the protected lagoon. Ocean currents coax in over 100 species of sea life. Ohotu Reef is renowned for its tuna, rays and deep-water drop-offs. Use the yacht’s underwater camera to capture the kaleidoscopic shallows of Pufana Reef.

Captain Cook spied Toau’s golden sands back in 1774. This effortlessly beautiful coral atoll has been beguiling sailors ever since. With just a handful of inhabitants – and a whole lot of coconuts – the action lies not above the waves, but below. Guests will see an endless UNESCO-protected coral garden on show.
Two peerless dives sites make Toau worth the trip alone. Pacific currents drift through the Otugi Pass. Crew will secure divers to a flexible mooring as silvertips and tuna funnel past. Visibility on the Anse Amyot Wall is second to none. Surgeonfish, butterfly fish, morays and grouper all join in the fun.

Evening cocktails and an early dinner before going ashore to the small nearby Motu for a starlit bonfire set up by the crew.
