I’ve spent countless hours of my life around waves, but I had never seen them quite this way before! This was the first time I ever brought a mask and snorkel into the waves, and I found it truly enchanting… It’s a whole new world!
There is all kinds of life happening under the waves. Fish are nibbling at the coral and the algae, swaying back and forth with the push and pull of the swells. Schools of little fish dart around the white wash using it as protection from predators.
The waves break with explosive force but underwater it’s still calm. The vortices of whitewash make incredible patterns, backlit by the sunshine above.
Having FUN in the waves.
This is the view from the beach. Who could imagine that all that magic is happening underwater just offshore? Having a mask & snorkel is like having a superpower… the ability to see what is not at all apparent. Add waves to the equation for a totally mind-blowing experience of fluid dynamics!

Love the new angle on the Oceanic experience. Great photos!
If you don’t yet know Amanda and John Neal, you should. They’ll be in Tahiti when you are and are super great people with lots of knowledge. See their website at: http://www.mahina.com. They could be great friends and resources for you.
Another way of looking at and appreciating waves ……from underneath. A beautiful new perspective.
