Tahaa is in the same lagoon as Raiatea, to the north, as the screen below shows.
The outer reef and lagoon round the island, with Aurora B anchored on the east side.
A close-up showing our anchor position just north of the pass through the reef. Being French, the islands
are well buoyed and the charts are very accurate - more so than in the Caribbean.
Looking south towards Raiatea.
Looking out towards the reef - we were in medium blue water with a depth of 18ft. As it gets shallower
the colour of the water turns to turquoise.
