At Sea and Moorea

May 09, 2019 - National Geographic Orion


Sunrise saw us off Tahiti, with dramatic clouds above the stunning landscape. After a series of incredible days in the Marquesas and Tuamotus, we were now reentering the “real world” by tucking into Moorea. Moorea is not really the real world, as the scenery is nothing short of surreal. What a gorgeous ending to our French Polynesian voyage!
