May 26, 2019 - National Geographic Orion
Leaving behind this low-pressure system and rainy weather, National Geographic Orion found shelter in the peaceful waters of Fakarava, a coral atoll famous for its protected and thriving shark populations. We were greeted by a sunny morning and had the opportunity to disembark exploring this incredible serene village. We met friendly locals and even friendlier sharks! We discovered the alluring power of the Tahitian black pearls and shopped for the souvenirs of the artisan market. Many of our guests cycled around or simply joined the locals for their Sunday mass. It was a relaxing day while our beautiful ship prepared to set sail to the incredible Marquesas Islands.
