The Pacific waters surrounding Chile’s Easter Island are teeming with exotic fish and endangered marine life.  

In fact the underwater wilderness is one of the largest marine parks in the world.

It is one reason why Chile’s President Michelle Bachelet announced, in October 2015, the creation of a sanctuary around the island to protect the environment for generations to come.   

Easter Island exudes mystery in large part due to the ancient stone statues that are located there.

Take a look beneath the coastal waters of this intriguing and isolated island.
