His photos show his talent for finding microorganisms and revealing them to the general public.
The webbed hike: an emerging nautical sustainable activity on the pebble
Faced with the success of the snorkeling he launched in the diving center Tiéti Diving, Martin Ravanat decided to create his own structure Aqualagoon, supported by Jeanne and Adele, from the tribes of Poindimié which he is very proud: ‘To our knowledge, the girls have become the first and only young Kanak women graduating at the divemaster level to date, and I am very happy to have them with me.’

Introducing the richness of the marine environment to young locals is one of the great ambitions of Aqualagoon, which regularly organizes outings. The team learns in particular to the students, accustomed for the majority to go under the water to look for fish to eat, to admire the fauna and the underwater flora for their beauty and sensitizes them to their fragility. Beyond the immediate pleasure of observation, the activity if practiced regularly can become a discipline of life…
Note that Tibarama Island is the only place in New Caledonia where you can observe the moray eel in free diving.
