Sharks and Groupers Spawning Expedition 

23 June - 3 July 2018

This is an expedition to die for; once a year, Camouflage Groupers come together in a colossal aggregation in the south pass of Fakarava, an atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago, French Polynseia, to spawn on the day of the full moon. With numbers in some years exceeding 20,000 groupers, biologists believe it to be our ocean biggest known aggregation of large reef fish. In 2014,  Laurent Ballesta and his team recorded over 700 sharks feasting into the spawning sessions.  This phenomenon in the blue pristine waters of the South Pacific is found nowhere else in the world.

To experience this very special event Ocean Geographic has organised an unique itinerary for a 10 day live-aboard expedition to explore the Toau, Faaite, Niau and Raraka atolls, of course the focus is on the spawning aggregation in Fakarava.  

Join Michael AW and Paul McKenzie for this unforgettable sojourn aboard the new French Polynesia Master.
