    Oh my goodness this looks like an amazing trip. I love the aquarium concept and what a fun name for a place they were able to restore and bring back natural species. The BBQ and dance evening looks like a wonderful cultural experience. Thanks for sharing the slow itinerary for Tiputa! <3

      You’re welcome! Indeed, I didn’t realise they had an overfishing episode at all! Maybe it used to be even more amazing than that. The channel slopes were teeming with large schools of fish, and yet they told me this is the ‘reduced’ condition!

    I like the sounds of your slow travel rule, I should do that more often. It looks like a beautiful place to visit.

      Stupefyingly gorgeous. There was a Swiss couple who joined me near the end, who had just come from Bora Bora. They told me that actually they preferred Rangiroa over Bora Bora!

    Great information here. I am planning a trip through Polynesia and will have to add this dolphin stop to my itinerary.

      It’s so hard to choose between places in French Polynesia. Pick Rangiroa if you’re specifically looking for life among dreamy atolls.

    Love the whole slow travel thing. It’s so easy to rush from one place to another, cramming in as much as possible and finishing the trip feeling like you saw everything and nothing at the same time. Loved this post. Great read! Definitely be enjoying more slow travel myself in the future.

      That’s a great way of putting it! ‘Seen everything and nothing at the same time’! At some point I discovered that doing less but slower feels disappointing in the short term (before the trip) but lasting satisfaction for a long, long time after. And I think that’s a brilliant trade!
