Sharks and rays

We’ve just had a perfect week here in Tahanea with sunny skies and mellow conditions. We snorkeled the pass a few times and had close encounters with manta rays that were feeding in the current. Back home we were greeted by our gang of blacktip reef sharks, who hang out around boats hoping for scraps. Whenever we caught a fish the shark feeding from the stern of the boat was quite a spectacle. Fortunately they calm down quickly after such a feeding frenzy and we could hop in and swim with them again. They are only between 1 m and 1.5 m, so humans are clearly not on their menu list :-)
