➡️ Z as in ZEN
The last photo of our special “lockdown” series featuring yachting, diving and nature.
Zen like the tranquility we find on a superyacht for a retreat, being able to isolate far from it all.
Hope you are all fine and safe 🙂
Onboard motor yacht A, French Polynesia.

➡️ Y as in YELLOW SUBMARINE
Submarines have become the ultimate tool for recreational underwater exploration. Being onboard a yacht with this incredible machine allows endless opportunities to discover 70% of our planet, which many areas are still undocumented – also a great opportunity for scientific research.
Moorea, French Polynesia.

➡️ X as in XXL
Humpback whales are among the largest creatures on the planet. See the diver next to them looking so small!
Every year, they bravely migrate from Antarctica to The Islands of Tahiti to give birth or find a mate. These endangered animals majestically swim in our waters between July and October. Encountering them is a once in a lifetime experience.
Moorea, French Polynesia

Note: the diver is on a rebreather dive unit upon the authorization of the Directorate for the Environment.
Scuba diving with whales is prohibited.

➡️ W as in WRECK
Wreck diving is always special in terms of atmosphere and often History.
Superyachts allow us to reach the most off the beaten track areas to explore these sites such as the 500 ft long Shinkoku Maru in Truk Lagoon, Micronesia.
This Japanese oil tanker was requisitioned by the Navy and converted as a support vessel during WWII. Sunk in 1944 by the US Air Force, she lies upright and hosts myriads of juvenile fish and is covered in corals and anemones. Exploring the wreck inside takes you back in time.
This photo features the engine room and was dived with rebreather.
It was an out of this world experience in terms of diving and emotion.

➡️ V as in Violence
Nature can be violent sometimes.
The yearly natural cycle of groupers’ breeding attracts predators looking for opportunities to feed among thousands of groupers.
Definitely an event to add to a yacht’s dive itinerary in the Tuamotu, French Polynesia.

➡️ T as in TIKI
This dive spot in Tahiti often hosts tiger sharks. But the Tiki proudly standing there symbolizes the “mana” spirit of a too soon departed friend and passionate professional whose favourite dive site it was.
A beautiful place.

➡️ S as in SMALL
Pygmy seahorses are as small as a fingernail and master in camouflage. They match the soft coral they live on as a protection from predators. These tiny creatures rely on the health of coral reefs for their survival. Reefs host thousands of tiny animal species essential to these ecosystems.
These cuties were seen in New Caledonia.

➡️ R as in RING
Coral rings – 78 atolls lie in the Tuamotu archipelago, French Polynesia and are remnants of underwater hot spots / volcanoes, many of which are uninhabited and perfectly suited for off the beaten track cruising and diving, far from it all. These coral rings, like little dots in the South Pacific, offer incredible marine life and reefs as well as thrilling drift diving with pelagic life.
Looking forward to taking you there!

➡️ Q as in QUANTITY
Marine reserves represent only about 3% of our oceans worldwide. Yet, they are essential to conservation especially nowadays but there are too few. Having dived all over the world, we have witnessed that underwater encounters are second to none in these protected areas. This school of hammerhead sharks was taken at Cocos Island in Costa Rica.
