Huahine, Society Islands

Jul 17, 2018 - National Geographic Orion


After another gorgeous sunrise, we entered the turquoise lagoon of Huahine.  In the morning we divided into a few different groups, but all focused on the land side of this spectacular island.  In the afternoon, it was all about the water.  Many of us snorkeled in a calm, clear spot swarming with fish while others enjoyed a postcard perfect beach.   We exited the reef at sunset on our way to Bora Bora.
