Dallmann Bay & Melchior Islands

Jan 06, 2020 - National Geographic Orion


Guests enjoyed a lazy morning on board National Geographic Orion as the ship navigated through Dallman Bay amongst the towering tabulars. After a morning of sightseeing and eating, guests were keen to get off the ship with several guests opting to kayak – for the second time this trip – among the tranquil Melchior Islands. A calmer but equally as stunning day was the perfect preparation for a night of partying with the world-famous Orion Crew Show.
