National Geographic Orion spent the day at sea, sailing for Tahiti. The seas were flat and the sky was blue. We all enjoyed some time to relax. We watched presentations from the naturalists and spent time on the bow. Seabirds were all around. Some curious ones even came in for a closer look. The sun began to set as the ship pulled into the harbor at Papeete.
National Geographic Orion
National Geographic Orion spent the entire day on Tahanea Atoll. The morning was full of adventures on land. Some the guests walked around a small motu and its abandoned village. The rest of us took Zodiacs across the lagoon to look for rare birds. In the afternoon, everyone strapped on their masks and fins to drift snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of the pass. At sunset, the ship sailed for open seas.
