AMAZING WORK BY AMAZING PEOPLE Richard Chesher and Frédérique Lesne offer us a virtual view of New Caledonia's Lagoon on a platter :)

Superyacht Vegas - Sunseeker 37m ...
 
"We recently cruised from Gold Coast Australia to the shores of New Caledonia. Our first port of call Noumea. We had been advised by many other Captains at the Sydney City Super Yacht Marina to use Noumea Ocean for all our custom clearances, immigration and quarantine clearances.

We were also advised that should we need any assistance in Noumea or the surrounding islands, Noumea Ocean would be of great assistance.
The Captains told me the person you need to speak directly with is Chloe Morin.

I contacted Chloe before I left Australia and she told me what she required from the yacht for clearances and also what was required for Quarantine. Dealing with Chloe, having never been to New Caledonia before, was a breath of fresh air.

Chloe met us at the dock on our arrival and from this point on, took control of our needs during our stay in Noumea. They call the company Noumea Ocean, however, what they fail to highlight is how incredibly efficient, professional and caring Chloe is. Absolutely anything you ask of Chloe is done with ease and grief free. Her fluent French and beautiful English make it a joy to be around her.

Chloe is well respected throughout the yachting community and more so throughout the marine industry in Noumea. There was no task to big or small that Chloe did not know someone who could fix it. And all done with ease.

NoumeaOcean is a good company, but what makes it great is Chloe Morin.

Our Motor Yacht was tied up with repairs for over 3 weeks. During this time we rebuilt hydraulics, sourced parts overseas and locally. Chloe orchestrated all our repairs, custom clearances and assisted us with the best trades people in Noumea.Over and above all of this, Chloe gave us the best navigational information and islands to explore. Her local knowledge is exemplary.

I thank the Captain of Crystal Lady, Hillsy, and Dreamer for suggesting I look her up.

Our time in Noumea, while difficult because of our mechanical problems, was made pleasureable by the very presence of Chloe.
I could not speak more highly of the professional standard and commitment of this young woman.
Chloe Morin is Noumea Ocean.


Yours Sincerely,
Greg Numa
Captain/Yacht Manager"

The GoPro Hero3 Black Edition is a terrific camera for taking sphere images. After years lugging expensive and delicate camera gear through mountain passes and over rivers the tiny, waterproof, wifi controlled GoPro Hero3 tacked onto the handle of my walking stick is pure joy and does a fantastic job. Here is a real-world test and comparison with other cameras taken at the same location over the years.

Over-Under water panoramic sphere images are my new pet project. I like the feeling of being able to magically see the underwater and the surface sea-scape all at once.
