 Tuamotu

Australia & Pacific

A boat will help you out during certain times of the year. But, there are boat restrictions during the cyclone season so sometimes the government can/will keep you out. The best spots are accessible by plane/cargo ship/local guide. The other spots are found on small uninhabited atolls near the main spots. These waves are usually short, shallow, shifty, windprone and shark infested. Cross-up swells create havoc on these atols. Very dangerous for even the seasoned south pac.

Voyage through French Polynesia - Just returned from a extensive voyage of French Polynesia, lived in the Tuamotu Islands for several weeks and if you have a fear of sharks you won't after you've swam with hundreds or rather thousands of them, as you will when your here. This is the shark capital of the world.
