"I did not sail off the end-of-the-world after all! I found a magical little uninhabited island, where time stands still.  Well, I sort of did, anyway.

We went diving at Takutea Wildlife Sanctuary and about fell over backwards within one minute of getting into the water - we had stumbled onto a divers paradise"
Log of Captain G, skipper of the RV Bounty Bay

The Research Vessel,  Bounty Bay is based in Rarotonga and its operators are the only people allowed to take tourists to the unspoiled beauty of unihabited Takutea.   They've been granted special permission by the High Chief of the Trust who manage the island.   One of the reasons for this is that they are also dedicated conservationists.   Captain G (Dr Graham Wragg) and his team have 16 years experience of running expeditions around the Pacific.  If you want to join one of their eco tours, you can find out more at Pacific-Expeditions Ltd.
