Zihlukaniswe ngamaqembu ahlukene, lezo zaseningizimu, ezasenyakatho nezama-coral atoll. Zakhiwa ngumsebenzi wentaba-mlilo kanti iziqhingi ezisenyakatho ziyiqembu elidala kunawo wonke. Isimo sezulu siyashisa futhi kusukela ngoMashi kuya kuDisemba basendleleni yesiphepho.

Iqiniso ukuthi bayiziqhingi ezikude nakho konke futhi lokho kusongela umnotho wabo ngoba bathembele kakhulu ngaphandle. Ngaphezu kwalokho, isimo sezulu asisizi ngoba nazo zingaphansi kwesimo sezulu esiningi esingesihle. Kusukela izinto ezingama-90s sezithuthuke kancane ngoba sezikhona izindawo zentela.

Ezokuvakasha eziqhingini zaseCook

Isiqhingi esinesikhumulo sezindiza samazwe omhlaba siyindlela yokungena kwabapheki: Isiqhingi saseRarotonga. Kungamakhilomitha angama-32 kuphela ukuzungeza futhi kungahanjwa ngokushesha ngemizuzu engama-40 ngemoto. Noma kunjalo, inezindawo ezinhle nezinhlobonhlobo futhi igxila ezindaweni eziningi zokudlela, izindawo zokuhlala nemisebenzi.

Esinye isiqhingi esihle I-Aitutaki, el Izulu emhlabeni. Kusemizuzwini engu-50 kuphela ukusuka eRarotonga, imise okonxantathu futhi kungumqhele wamakhorali enolwandle lwangaphakathi oluluhlaza olugcwele iziqhingana ezincane. Kuyisiqhingi sesibili esivakashelwa kakhulu ngabapheki futhi imvamisa indawo yehoneymoon.

Ungahamba nge-kayaking, ushise ilanga emabhishi amahle esihlabathi esimhlophe, nge-kite surf, uyodoba, u-snorkel kanye ne-scuba diving, ugibele isithuthuthu noma ibhayisikili noma uhlale ngqo lapha ube nakho konke okuseduze isikhathi eside.

Atiu kuyisiqhingi esineminyaka engaphezu kwezigidi eziyisishiyagalombili ubudala. Ingabe i- ihlathi kanye nesiqhingi esishisayo uhhafu kasayizi weRarotonga. Nayi imvelo, hhayi impucuko. Amathilomu nje ambalwa ezigodini zawo ezinhlanu ezisenkabeni. Ikhofi le-organic litshaliwe futhi kukhona i-vibe enhle ebuyiselwe emuva.

Ufika kanjani lapho? Endizeni yemizuzu engama-45 ukusuka eRarotonga noma e-Aitutaki. Kusukela esiqhingini sokuqala kunezindiza ezintathu ngesonto, ngoMgqibelo, ngoMsombuluko nangoLwesithathu. Kusukela kwesesibili kukhona nezindiza ezintathu kodwa ngoLwesihlanu, ngoMsombuluko nangoLwesithathu nge-Air Rarotonga.

IMangaia Kuyisiqhingi okumele ngabe sineminyaka eyizigidi eziyi-18 ubudala, ngakho-ke kuyisiqhingi esidala kunazo zonke ePacific. Kuyisiqhingi sesibili ngobukhulu saseCook futhi indiza yemizuzu engama-40 kuphela ukusuka eRarotonga. Kungobuhle bemvelo obuqand 'ikhanda, ngamadwala ama-coral, izimila eziluhlaza, amabhishi anamanzi acwebezela njengekristalu, imigede ekhangayo, ukushona kwelanga okuhle, izinsalela zomkhumbi owaphuka ngo-1904 nezimakethe zendawo ezimibalabala.

La Isiqhingi saseMauke, "Lapho inhliziyo yami iphumule khona," is a ingadi esiqhingini lapho kunezimbali nezithelo eziningi. Lapha kufanele uvakashele uMgede Wasolwandle osogwini olusempumalanga, lapho uphahla lwalo luhlunga khona ilanga futhi lunikeze ukucwazimula okuluhlaza okwesibhakabhaka emanzini.
