Tara. This is the name of an extraordinary boat, an oceanographic schooner sailing the Pacific Ocean to study coral. I embarked in February 2018 with the scientists for a media report in the Philippines...
In the dream boat category, here is one on which I would see myself embarking one day: the mythical Aranui, to go to the Marquesas Islands, in Polynesia!
I regret that I could only spend two days in Moorea, the neighboring island of Tahiti. I loved its rugged terrain and lush vegetation, azure lagoon and the legendary Cook Bay.
I like being under water. But I also like being on the water. Between two dives, in Weda Bay, I enjoy the pleasure of sailing, from one reef to another, from one creek to another, under the Indonesian sun.
In Polynesia, there are not only lagoons, coconut palms and yukulélés. There is also the ocean and the whales!
When it's cold and gray, I remember Maupiti. I see the light, the lagoon, the ocean ... Come on, presto! We return to Polynesia.
