At Sea towards Raroia, French Polynesia

Apr 08, 2018 - National Geographic Orion


When you explore the South Pacific by ship it is inevitable that you will have to have a day at sea to navigate the vast distances between the many islands and atolls. Although, a day at sea is never a ‘wasted’ day onboard National Geographic Orion!

We enjoyed a few fascinating lectures from our natural history staff, had time to catch up on editing our photos with our photography instructors, and – of course – feasted on the many delicious meals prepared by our outstanding galley and hotel teams.

But, the highlight of our day had to be a blue water swim in over 6000 feet of crystal clear blue water right in the middle of the South Pacific!
