     Our passage from the Marquesas to the Tuamotus, brought us to the atoll of Ahe (#1).  We were able to negotiate  Passe Reianui during daylight hours and slack tide and entered the lagoon without difficulty. 

     Below, you can see a satellite view of the Ahe atoll.  You can easily see the only entrance through the reef into the

lagoon.  The main town was on the south western side where the lagoon starts to narrow.  During our time in Ahe, the Iron Mistress and My Chance were the only two visiting yachts in the entire lagoon --  paradise indeed.....
