Aug 11, 2018 - National Geographic Orion
Toau, located in the Tuamotu Archipelago, is an unexplored atoll in French Polynesia. Untouched by tourism and still pristine, it was the perfect scenery for our second expedition day aboard National Geographic Orion. The wide reef lagoon provided the perfect protection against swell and currents, while we safely submerged and explored the healthy and beautiful reef ecosystem. We also had the opportunity to visit a remote family settlement and meet the friendly locals. It was a great occasion to exchange mutual courtesies and we were all captivated by their warm and genuine hospitable welcome. The weather could not dampen the intrepid spirit of our guests!
