Sharks and Groupers Spawning Expedition 

17 June - 27 June 2021

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 a 2021 trip with this 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.

This adventure will tease your senses and get the adrenaline pumping faster than a Ferrari.  The first part of our expedition is a sojourn to Cuba - to the Gardens of the Queen (Jardines de la Reina) a marine reserve lost in time. Imagine....no commercial fishing of any kind, no inhabitants, no industry of any form and only one dive operator. The reefs have never been touched and swarm with sharks, schooling fishes, groupers of all descriptions and sizes. The gigantic jewfish (aka the goliath grouper), that have largely vanished from other Caribbean nations long ago are abundantly found here, as are Saltwater Crocodiles.  The Gardens of the Queen is our planet's last hidden paradise. Join us for this magical experience.
