Bora Bora, Society Islands

Jun 08, 2018 - National Geographic Orion

Even just the name Bora Bora sparks the imagination of many a traveler. The island is a part of the Society Islands and is the first destination on our trip from Tahiti to Rangiroa. The volcanic island has stunning mountainous ranges which we explored upon arrival via “Le Trucks,” and “Le 4WD’s.” We later had our own very island for the afternoon for water activities including snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding.

Chris was lucky enough to grow up on the East Coast of Australia, where there are no shortage of different coastal environments to explore. While growing up, his friends would be surfing while he would be under the waves, snorkel and mask on looking for fish and all the weird and wonderful creatures he couldn’t get enough of. This love of the ocean lead to him completing a Bachelor of Science in 2005.
