JBL Expedition 2023: The lesser known beauties of the South Seas!

Why go to Tahiti, Fiji or Bora Bora when there are regions in French Polynesia that are completely free of tourists and biologically intact? The 78 atolls of the Tuamotu archipelago are the destination for our 18th JBL research expedition, and it will be something very special. Leaving little impact on the environment the catamaran Aquatiki III will sail our participants to the pristine lands north-east of Tahiti. Animal observations under water and aquatic sea water research are on the agenda for around 15 days in May-June 2023. Our underwater feeding trials with the reef inhabitants will be particularly exciting with hundreds of sharks looking on. The passages near Fakarava are world famous for them. When you’re not diving or exploring you can snorkel to one of the countless small palm islands to play Robinson Crusoe and watch fish in the shallow, 29 °C water or even look for lizards on land. Applications are now being accepted here on the JBL website Expedition South Seas
