Adventures and challenges

e did a daysail from Tahanea to the neighbouring island of Katiu–a place we hadn’t dared visiting before, because of it’s scary pass. We took the depthsounder with us in the dinghy to scout ahead, then we were still not certain whether we could take Pitufa in and snorkeled to take a close look at what might be lurking in the narrow channel. We memorized the deeper channel (it was blasted through coral in the 80s) and only then we attempted entering. At slack high tide we cautiously made it into the lagoon :-)
Here’s a sat image of the pass:
