Oyster Island and Espiritu Santo Island, Vanuatu

In some places it was shallow enough to walk while in others we got to float. We travelled 45 minutes along the river through the section they called 'The Big Swim'. At one spot we stopped and our guides chewed up some coconut and spat it in the water bringing schools of large fish splashing about snapping up the food and attacking the coconut all around us. Cool! They were quite big fish so I guess coconut is fattening even for fish. What an experience! We thought black water rafting in NZ last year was great (and it was) but this was even more exciting and brilliant in that it was in such a natural state.   Select the photo below to see more of this beautiful area.
