Pictures of Suwarrow Island
As I promised I have taken some of my better photos of the Island Suwarrow in the North Cook Islands. Just a reminder that you can click on the photo for a larger shot.
Suwarrow Island is by far one of the most beautiful and breath taking Islands I have been on to date and is defiantly an all-time best snorkeling reefs in the world. I don’t like to claim a destination to be the best in the world but I have been too close to half of the world and the reefs in Suwarrow Islands are true virgins and have been un touched by man. The main reason is because you can only get there by sailing your own boat and that’s it. I have not edited any of my pictures with software and I do look forward to doing so someday but the following few photos are as real as the day I took them, enjoy.
Sailing underway between Bora Bora and Suwarrow Island as the sun was setting somewhere 300 nautical miles off shore.
Some evening I get to enjoy the most elegant offers of the ocean from the front row seat at the helm of Dragonsbane.
Yup we made it to the Island of Suwarrow I guess we are few miles from home.
Adam decided to take a break and have a nap under the palm trees.
I felt like I earned a rum coconut juice cocktail and a nap as I watched the ocean on still land.
Not a bad view?
Woke up this morning to find tons of black tipped reef sharks circling the boat.
Some of them are really big, lol.
In the evening we had a cruisers pot luck and drank rum and listened to some guitar music, good stuff.
I would like to introduce you to my good friend Charlie, this is his home and would ask that you be patient, relax. Charlie would say that line 100 times a hour and then tell you one more time. I guess I took his advice and just relaxed.
Blue footed boobie pooping on my outboard
Well this is Dans dinghy that he is fixing and the catamaran in the back ground is his ship wrecked boat. He has been on this island for 2 months. He lost his mast once, sank half the boat, out of money, out of fuel, but one of the most happy people I ever met. I definitely took some notes from his life that I shall reflect upon in the future.
Well It’s a island with thousands of birds.
A few more shots
Here are some good examples of the hermit crabs. At night when I was around the camp fire on the beach and the moon was bright the hermit crabs would come out from hiding and march to the water’s edge by the thousands. I would try and walk by without crunching them but I failed a few times.
Meet the coconut crab, these guys are so odd looking and creped me out. There were like big spiders.
Well I hope you enjoyed the pictures. We are now in America Soma which so far has been a good decision. I look forward to our hikes and adventures that we will start on Monday.
