Ha'apai-one of my favorite archipelagos in the world. Eleven days (Sept. 11-21) were spent surveying the reefs of this remote, scarcely populated region. If you would like the photos in a more convenient format, such as an iPhoto library, please email me (email@example.com), and I will post it on Google Drive (SquareSpace does not permit files larger than 20 MB).
