Fakarava Atoll in French Polynesia is ranked by many divers as one of the worlds top dive spots. I was fortunate to go there for Blue Planet 2, to be part of filming a sequence about camouflage grouper and their annual spawning aggregation.
Fakarava certainly lived up to it's reputation. The reef there is as healthy as I have seen anywhere, and there remain there the large numbers of apex predators that there should be on every coral reef. I was fortunate enough to spend close to 100 hours underwater on this reef, getting to know the camouflage grouper intimateley.
