Shark Diving in Fakarava, Slow Boat Sailing S2E18

Linus, Anna, and Daly try out the top four things to do in when sailing in Fakarava in the Tuamotus of French Polynesia. Linus is afraid of sharks, but Anna is not. They tour the pearl farms, airport, Phare de Topaka, north pass, south pass, and explain the fuel, water, and provisioning situation in the second largest atoll in the Tuamotus of French Polynesia, Renting a bike is a great way to get around Fakarava. They explore pink sand beaches and enjoy the lagoon and ocean waves. Linus gives tips on the best way to enter the pass, taking advantage of the tides and daylight. The dangerous archipelago, the Tuamotus poses particular challenges that prevent sailboat and sailors from easily moving from one atoll to the other. The Slow Boat experiences a scary frontal passage in the atoll.
