I’m on a boat

On the Moorea Cata Jet tour, we drove a mini speedboat around the island, with a couple of stops to check out stingrays, reef sharks, and a secluded private beach.

Picnic in paradise

On the second half of our Moorea Miti Tour, we enjoyed a delicious lunch on a private beach, followed by some more snorkeling in the crystal blue water.

Circled by sharks

The Moorea Miti Tour was fantastic. For the first half of the tour, the boat brought us to a shallow sand bar to swim with black tip reef sharks and stingrays. Lots of close encounters with these incredible animals!

Diving in with black tip and lemon sharks

We did a fantastic Shark and Ray Snorkel Safari excursion in Bora Bora with three snorkel stops. The first dive was outside the barrier reef where we swam with dozens of black tip sharks and lemon sharks. The second spot was on a sand bar where there were sting rays and more black tips. The last stop was a coral garden, with stunning coral formations as far as the eye could see. Definitely recommend this excursion.

The Boston aquarium even had a live shark egg with a shark embryo inside

One of the hidden gems at the New England Aquarium is the shark nursery. They had a handful of shark eggs on display with real live tiny little shark embryos inside. This particular one that I recorded on video below is an epaulette shark embryo that is 3 months old. It was set to hatch 1 month later. Thanks to the special lighting you can really see it move around and feed inside the egg. Most people walked by this display since there is so much more going around elsewhere in the aquarium.

Petting sharks and sting rays at the aquarium in Boston

The New England Aquarium has a shark and sting ray touch tank!!! I really enjoyed being able to pet these animals. There was such a huge variety of animals in that tank and there wasn’t anything to be afraid of. There was an especially large leopard whiptail stingray that kept coming back. Such a beautiful creature. You can tell from the video that I couldn’t get enough!
