From time to time we shoot the odd video about our Journey, and they are all catalogued below. You can watch them by clicking on the select image. We have also included links to the stories that each video relates to.

OVERNIGHT PASSAGE BETWEEN ATOLLs:

SHARK SCENE IN FAKARAVA:

UNDERWATER FOOTAGE OF WAVES CRASHING ON THE REEF:
Images taken with a GoPro camera on a reef in Huahine, French Polynesia. Watch the waves from underneath as they wash over me
MANTA RAY IN HUAHINE:
This big guy swam by Pesto every morning while we were anchored at the south bay in Huahine, French Polynesia. It was a matter of getting the GoPro and the flippers ready. Click on the image above (or HERE) to watch.
CORAL GARDEN IN HUAHINE:
We went as close as we could to the edge of the reef at the south of Huahine, right where the swell breaks, and where the water is the clearest. Click on the image above (or HERE) to watch.
AVATIU HARBOR (COOKS ISLANDS):
Avatiu is the only safe harbor in Rarotonga, Cook Islands, and thus is a multipurpose place. We shot this 360 view on a bouncy day as the winds had shifted to the North. This video relates to THIS STORY on our site.
SWIMMING IN NIUE:
Niue is a tiny island-nation in the middle of the South Pacific. It’s a roadstead, made of limestone, and devoid of beaches. The waters surrounding it are therefore as clear as it gets in the open seas. We went for a quick swim around Pesto and this short video was the result.

CRUISING IN TONGA WITH A BROKEN ENGINE:
A short video update made from the Kingdon of Tonga
