    Shark Feeding by NIGHT: Hellooooooo Uncle!

    Don't

    Here comes a Black tip and 5 of his trusty sidekicks!

    It was amazing to watch them in action. These aren't man-eating sharks like you see in the movies. The black tip sharks that roam the lagoons only feed on food that's already dead.

    They won't touch any of the other species if they're still alive.

    Even if you encounter one (face to face) while snorkeling, just remember that "he is more afraid of you than you are of him."

    Also remember that you're face to face with Jeanine's Aunt or Uncle! ;-)

    Shark Feeding by NIGHT!: Share your LEFTOVERS!!

    As I mentioned, our gracious hostess, Jeanine, was an eccentric woman with a Polynesian twist!

    After our dinner one evening, she shared with us the story about her ancient ancestors who were reincarnated as sharks. Therefore, she has no fear of sharks.

    The lagoon in Maupiti is filled with lots of exotic fish, rays, and sharks.

    After dinner, she asked us to walk over to the pier and check out a surprise. Turns out, she had dumped the leftovers into the lagoon and there was tons of fish coming to the surface for feeding time.

    Minutes later..........the "relatives" showed up.

    Sunset in Maupiti

    As there are no bars or discotheques on the island, the only thing you can do is to enjoy the sunset. From Motu Tiapaa you can admire the sunset at about 5:30 pm.

    Bring a good book to read in bed under your mosquito net or maybe there are some other things to do ;-) it's up to you.

    Don't go to bed too late, the sun rises at 6 am and you will be awaken by the dogs and roosters even much sooner.
