At up to 6 metres in length, they are imposing predators with an array of incredible sensory organs housed in their distinctive hammer-shaped heads. But there are still many unanswered questions about these mysterious creatures. Marine biologist Dr Johan Mourier of the University of Perpignan is dedicated to exploring the behaviour and genetic make-up of great hammerhead sharks to help preserve this endangered species in the wild. In the last 25 years alone, their world population has shrunk by about 80%. Yet very little is known about them. Dr Mourier wants to get to the bottom of ...

It shows the natural beauty of French Polynesia with its abundant beaches, fishing, paradisiacal vistas, unspoiled jungles, coconut plantations, and strong and beautiful people. As the film points out, the arrival of jet aircraft as a means to travel, forever changed Tahiti from a remote dream for most people, to a reality visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists per year.

It is probably most famously known for its now deceased but legendary owner, the charasmatic and moody Hollywood actor, Marlon Brando, although relatively few travelers have ever visited the place.

But there's more than a challenging wave rolling over the coral reef -- it's the heaviest wave in the world -- and that's what waits at "the end of the road."

Papeete is not a tropical paradise. It is a typical government center and industrial port with small doses of French and Polynesian charm. It has shopping, eating, and drinking, but very little sightseeing for a capital city and even fewer top-class hotels. The residents speak French and Tahitian, although English is spoken by many in the tourist trade. The people-watching is superb. Get around ======== Papeete is a walking city. It's really too small to bother with any other form of transport, unless you are going out to the fringes, or would simply like to experience the famous le truck for fun (hop-on, hop-off, anywhere in the city center for about XPF100!) Bring a water bottle: it can be quite hot and humid. Taxis are clean and efficient although relatively expensive and may be hard to find after 6pm. There are two dedicated taxi stands along the waterfront. Fares are prescribed by the government and are displayed inside Taxis. The fare is roughly XPF 1000 plus a charge for distance. Hotels will know exactly what the fare is to the city centre. As an example the fare from the Manava Suite Resort to the water front as at 17/4/2014 is XPF2300 before 8:00PM. The fee increases by XPF 1000 after 8:30PM. Meters are unheard of, so confirm the fare before getting into a taxi. Le Truck will take you to other parts of the island and around town quite cheaply. The service is infrequent or non-existent on weekends. See === The waterfront. Papeete has redeveloped its waterfront into a long park, with foods and carnival-like attractions. Sleep ========== Stealth Campsite. From the waterfront, travel east along Prince Hinoi Street for approximately 1 mi/ 1.6 km. Stay on the right side of the street. You will arrive at a bridge that crosses a stream. Before you cross the bridge, you will notice cement stairs that lead to a paved foot/bike path that also passes under the bridge, running parallel to the stream. Go down these stairs, and you will see the spot on the opposite stream bank under the bridge. There is graffiti on the wall and a fire pit. Bring a sleeping pad and some way to ward of bugs. You wont find anything cheaper than this. Buy ==== Black pearls abound. There is just about every kind of store here, including some (particularly near the Marché) who have no problem selling you imitation balls of black glass or fiberglass at market prices. Be sure to look for a certificate of authenticity on the wall of the shop, and trust your guidebook for recommendations. Eat ==== You can go broke eating in this town. There are some fine restaurants but expect to pay US$30 for a hamburger at a hotel restaurant or other proper sit-down establishment. There are a lot of midrange places where you can expect to pay US$20-30 for your whole meal. French and Chinese are well represented here. Look for the word "Snack" in the name of the restaurant. There is also a conveyor belt sushi place that's very good, and the chefs are quite friendly there. The best deal in town is the Roulottes, the food trucks that set up shop every evening in the big square in the waterfront park. Every day they begin setting up around dusk. Chinese, French, and Tahitian cuisine are all well represented. You can get chow mein, poisson cru, crepes, pizza, ice cream, and because this is France, everything comes with bread. Expect to pay about XPF 1500 for your whole meal. Food trucks also set up further from town such as at others Marinas and near hotels.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. The Pulemelei Mound or Star Pyramid which is Samoa’s own Ancient Pyramid, is situated on the Island of Savai’i was built between 1100-1400 AD and was no longer used by 1700-1800 AD. 2. Samoa only has one city – Apia, which is also the capital of Samoa since 1959. Apia Harbor is by far the largest and busiest harbor in Samoa. 3. In Samoa, it is acceptable for a family who has too many sons, to raise the youngest boy as a daughter. He is known as a fa’afafine and is given a girl’s name and wears feminine clothing… and is even allowed to use the ladies bathroom. A recognized gender identity/gender role since at least the early 20th century in Samoan society, and some theorize an integral part of traditional Samoan culture fa'afafine are male at birth, and explicitly embody both masculine and feminine gender traits, fashioned in a way unique to this part of the world. 4. Traditionally called Tatua, tattooing has long been a beautiful form of culture present on the island. The process of creating a true Samoan Tatua is arduous. The design is not simply something you pick from a design book, but rather is a piece of artwork that must be catered to the individual. Applying the Tatua to the skin is painstakingly time consuming and incredible difficult due to the various intricacies in the design. 5. Samoa is a traditional society governed by Fa’a Samoa (the Samoan Way) - where family is all important, respect of elders is strictly adhered to, and being of service to your family is your duty. The Samoan culture and way of life is over 3000 years old and has been preserved by the isolation of the tiny island on which it was born. 6. The traditional living quarters, or fale (houses), contain no walls and up to 20 people may sleep on the ground in the same fale. 7. Samoa’s official name is the Independent State of Samoa or Malo Sa 'oloto Tuto 'atasi o Sāmoa. The Samoan language is Polynesian, so don’t expect to understand it right from the get-go. With 510,000 people as native speakers worldwide, Samoan is the most prominent of the 40 Polynesian languages.

version en français plus bas. Moorea The Magical Island Believed to have inspired the mythical Bali Hai from James Michener's Tales of the South Pacific, Moorea is one of the most scenically striking islands in French Polynesia. Despite her immaculate beauty, she is far from unapproachable. Possessing a relaxed vibe and welcoming spirit, Moorea is just as warm and inviting as the Tahitians lucky enough to call this island home. The Locale Located only ten nautical miles from Tahiti, Moorea is easily accessible by ferry or plane from Papeete. This proximity, coupled with the island's receptive and neighborly nature, makes Moorea a favorite destination for couples, families and locals. Still, Moorea has managed to maintain its small island feel despite this popularity and the presence of a few internationally branded resorts. The Allure The attraction toward Moorea comes as no surprise; the island is a geographical marvel. Eight voluminous mountain peaks rise from its translucent lagoon, creating a distinctive and rugged silhouette visible from the western coast of Tahiti. Splitting the northern shore are two symmetrical bays: Cook's (Paopao) and Opunohu Bay. The island is roughly shaped like a heart from overhead; and in the theme of love and romance, Moorea is one of the top honeymoon destinations in Tahiti—second only to Bora Bora. Moorea L'île magique Croyant avoir inspiré le mythique Bali Hai des contes de James Michener du Pacifique Sud, Moorea est l'une des îles les plus frappantes de la Polynésie française. Malgré sa beauté immaculée, elle est loin d'être inaccessible. Doté d'une ambiance détendue et d'un esprit accueillant, Moorea est tout aussi chaleureuse et accueillante que les Tahitiens assez chanceux pour appeler cette île à la maison. Situé à seulement dix milles nautiques de Tahiti, Moorea est facilement accessible en ferry ou en avion depuis Papeete. Cette proximité, associée à la nature réceptive et de bon voisinage de l'île, fait de Moorea une destination préférée pour les couples, les familles et les habitants. Pourtant, Moorea a réussi à maintenir sa petite île malgré cette popularité et la présence de quelques stations de marque internationales. L'attraction vers Moorea ne surprend pas; L'île est une merveille géographique. Huit volumineux sommets montent à partir de sa lagune translucide, créant une silhouette distinctive et rugueuse visible de la côte occidentale de Tahiti. La division de la rive nord est divisée en deux baies symétriques: Cook (Paopao) et Opunohu Bay. L'île est à peu près en forme d'un cœur de la tête; Et dans le thème de l'amour et de l'amour, Moorea est l'une des destinations de lune de miel supérieure à Tahiti, seulement pour Bora Bora.

The waters off the Rangiroa Atoll in French Polynesia are home to an astonishing creature, a true survivor from an age when dinosaurs roamed the Earth around 400 million years ago: the great hammerhead shark. At up to 6 metres in length, they are imposing predators with an array of incredible sensory organs housed in their distinctive hammer-shaped heads. But there are still many unanswered questions about these mysterious creatures. Marine biologist Dr Johan Mourier of the University of Perpignan is dedicated to exploring the behaviour and genetic make-up of great hammerhead sharks to help preserve this endangered species in the wild. In the last 25 years alone, their world population has shrunk by about 80%. Yet very little is known about them. Dr Mourier wants to get to the bottom of the sharks’ migratory patterns, as well as their social behaviour. By tagging individual sharks with GPS locators, he hopes to establish where the animals go, what their migration routes are and where they are most threatened. It is becoming increasingly clear that sharks tend to move very quickly and deliberately between different fishing grounds. Is this also true for the Great Hammerheads? Are changes in these traditional fishing grounds threatening the hammerheads’ survival? The extreme shyness of these mighty predators makes them difficult research subjects. To make matters worse, great hammerheads are loners, unlike their common hammerhead cousins. And since tagging is usually done by using airtanks, it is very difficult to approach these shy individuals. This is where Frederic’s silent and calm approach underwater makes all the difference: Dr Mourier is working together with Fred to get closer to the animals than ever before. This gives him not only the chance to study their behaviour up close, he is even able to select individuals for tagging to reflect a cross-section of the population. The researchers are able to track the tagged sharks and plot their migratory patterns for the very first time. For Frederic, this undertaking is not only exciting, it is seriously dangerous and requires months of preparation and training. Approaching a predator like this one in open water is not for the faint-hearted, especially since it is thought that sharks are able to ‘feel fear’ and respond to it aggressively. On Frederic and Christian’s arrival in Papete, the capital of French Polynesia, Dr Mourier diligently highlights the risks and pitfalls of trying to dive with great hammerhead sharks: they are powerful predators, not to be underestimated. Frederic and Christian have their work cut out. They have to plan each dive meticulously – not least how Christian and his diving equipment can stay close enough to Frederic to document his findings without disturbing the sharks. Minimising potential risks is also top of their agenda. Test dives perfect their technique and illustrate just how abundant and stunning the local marine life is. They come across many shark species: Silvertips, oceanic white tips, grey reef sharks, lemmon sharks and many others. Dr. Mourir shows and explains their nursery: bays with hundreds of baby sharks. No matter which shark species Frederic wants to approach, he cannot afford to panic. He must remain calm and in control – instinctive reactions like sudden, hecticmovements could be detrimental. Loose control, and it could cost him his life. The tagging and sampling process in itself is even more dangerous than the initial approach: Frederic has to use a harpoon to dart the sharks from their immediate vicinity. The tagging could be interpreted as a threat and prompt an attack. But luck is on their side. After many days Fred finally can set the tags near the dorsal fin of two great hammerheads. This is the crucial moment Dr Mourier has been waiting for: the tags will give him a unique chance to track the sharks’ movements. A huge success for Frederic, Christian and the research team. The insights gained into the great hammerheads migration patterns and their genetic make-up will combine to paint a much more accurate picture of these elusive predators’ lives. For science today, this undertaking is truly uncharted territory.

From the http://www.VideoSource.com Global Village Travel Guide and DVD, "Islands of the South Pacific". Stock footage available from http://videosource.com/search.html Transcript: Up until recent times, all of Tahiti's' guests have arrived by sea , and the Kay , here along the Boulevard Pomare, is the heart of the city. These modern adventurers follow in a time-honored tradition. Tahiti has been known as a mecca for world cruising voyagers, ever since the first explorers arrived. France is only the latest of nations to drop anchor in Tahitian waters. Captain Cook made three voyages here in 1769, 1773 and 1777. Not only did Cook give the European world the first complete map of the entire Pacific, but his journals and the records of his ship's historian and artist, brought straight-forward accounts of the cultures of Tahiti and The Society Islands to the attention of the rest of the world. It was Captain Cook who established Papeete as the cultural and political center of the islands. Before the Europeans, the islanders lived in territories divided by river valleys and mountains. Cook wrongly concluded that the then chief of Papeete was the chief of all Tahiti and gave him tools made of iron, which the islanders had never seen. With these, the chief made war canoes so quickly that by the turn of the century he became, in fact, the chief of the whole island, having defeated all his rivals. In the 1820s, Queen Pomare expanded the village to trade with whalers, Navy ships and merchants and it was a thriving center when France annexed it j as a protectorate in 1842...........

Papeete is the capital of French Polynesia, an overseas country of France in the Pacific Ocean. The commune (municipality) of Papeete is located on the island of Tahiti, in the administrative subdivision of the Windward Islands, of which Papeete is the administrative capital. The French High Commissioner also resides in Papeete. It is the primary center of Tahitian and French Polynesian public and private governmental, commercial, industrial and financial services, the hub of French Polynesian tourism and a commonly used port of call. The Windward Islands are themselves part of the Society Islands. The name Papeete means "water from a basket". The urban area of Papeete had a total population of 133,627 inhabitants at the August 2012 census, 25,769 of whom lived in the commune of Papeete proper.

Narrated by actor Alan Caillou, also known as Alan Samuel Lyle-Smythe M.B.E., "O Tahiti Tele" was created by the Tahiti Tourist Development Board in 1972. It shows the natural beauty of French Polynesia with its abundant beaches, fishing, paradisiacal vistas, unspoiled jungles, coconut plantations, and strong and beautiful people. As the film points out, the arrival of jet aircraft as a means to travel, forever changed Tahiti from a remote dream for most people, to a reality visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists per year. Tahiti is the largest island in the Windward group of French Polynesia; an overseas collectivity of the French Republic, sometimes referred to as an overseas country. The island is located in the archipelago of the Society Islands in the central Southern Pacific Ocean, and is divided into two parts: The bigger, northwestern part Tahiti Nui and the smaller, southeastern part Tahiti Iti. The island was formed from volcanic activity and is high and mountainous with surrounding coral reefs. The population is 183,645 inhabitants (2012 census), making it the most populous island of French Polynesia and accounting for 68.5% of its total population. Tahiti was formerly known as Otaheite. Tahiti is the economic, cultural and political centre of French Polynesia. The capital of the collectivity, Pape'ete, is located on the northwest coast with the only international airport in the region, Fa'a'ā International Airport, situated 5 km (3.1 mi) from the town centre. Tahiti was originally settled by Polynesians between 300 and 800 CE. They represent about 70% of the island's population with the rest made up of Europeans, Chinese and those of mixed heritage. The island was proclaimed a colony of France in 1880 although it was not until 1946 that the indigenous Tahitians were legally authorised to be French citizens. French is the only official language although the Tahitian language (Reo Maohi) is widely spoken. It was part of the Kingdom of Tahiti until its annexation by France in 1880. Fa'a'ā International Airport (French: Aéroport International Tahiti Fa'a'ā) (IATA: PPT, ICAO: NTAA) is in the commune (municipality) of Fa'a'ā, on the island of Tahiti, French Polynesia, 5 km (3.1 mi) west southwest from the town center of Pape'ete, the capital of French Polynesia. Tahiti is in the northwestern part of French Polynesia, and this is the only international airport in the overseas collectivity of the French Republic. It opened in 1960. Air Tahiti has its head office at the airport. We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting?

The mysterious Polynesian island jewel known as Tetiaroa is actually a 4.5 mile wide atoll comprised of 12 motus (small islands) and located just 36.5 miles (59 km) north of Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia on the island of Tahiti. It is probably most famously known for its now deceased but legendary owner, the charasmatic and moody Hollywood actor, Marlon Brando, although relatively few travelers have ever visited the place. (In actuality, Marlon didn't ever really OWN the place, but rather was privy to a 99 year LEASE to it from the FP government.) Marlon Brando and Tarita TeripaiaInterestingly, Tetiaroa is still a rather pristine South Pacific getaway, having resisted tourism and development due to its private and exclusive ownership status over the years. This enchanted atoll is still home to one of Tahiti's only protected bird sanctuaries as well as an intact and healthy surrounding marine environment. A luxury eco-resort called the Brando is slated to open on the atoll in 2013. GC Privé ~ A world of luxury www.gcprive.com

In French Polynesia the jewel of the South Pacific Ocean is Tahiti, with it's 180 islands towering over the ocean like a royal Queen, crowned by a circle of majestic peaks. Our journey took us far out of the capital Papeete into another world and space - to Teahupo'o. Physically nothings changed since the 60ties, Tahiti remains paradise -- with friendly locals and turquoise warm water. But there's more than a challenging wave rolling over the coral reef -- it's the heaviest wave in the world -- and that's what waits at "the end of the road."
