The Atoll of Fakarava in French Polynesia has been designated as an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve for the preservation of rare species. For the divers it offers an abundance great under-water treasures. The south pass is accessible to all level of divers, thanks the mild conditions of the currents and depth in the pass.
While diving, you discover a profusion of live, the vibrant colors of the living corals, the uncountable Napoleon Wrasses to large schools of grey reef sharks calling the pass their home. The dives spots at the South Pass of Tetamanu, called Tumakohua, are located about 20 minutes by boat from ENATA FAKARAVA DIVING.
The motu of Tetamanu lies beside the southern pass. This was formerly the main village and the capital of the Tuamotu Archipelago. The first Catholic church in the Tuamotu atolls was built here in 1874 and is made of coral. There are only about 10 people in this district (including us), happy souls living in a dream world in this haven of peace out of time.
