"The one that "almost" got away!!" Îles Tuamotu et Gambier Sports & Outdoors Tip by Geisha_Girl

  The HERO of Fakarava
by Geisha_Girl

As "Keeper of the Boat" I was being highly entertained at seeing the spear fishing taking place a short distance ahead.

One by one, I saw the fish being tossed into the bins (yes, the one Christian was trailing alongside him). Those fish were relentless and tried wholeheartedly to jump back into the water!

Being the fearless Sybarite, Christian made every attempt not to let one of those creatures go. I saw him diving and bobbing his head in and out of the waters..........while swimming away from the school of sharks that were quickly circling him!

He made the heroic "rescue" of this little guy, diving straight down into the deep despite the sharks, to place him back with the others.

It was an "adrenaline rush" he says. For me it was sheer panic to watch it all take place!

"Can't we just stick to frozen fishsticks?" ;-)
