Today, National Geographic Orion spent the day at sea, sailing south to the Tuamotu Islands. This journey of just over 500 nautical miles will only take us one day and a night of sailing. We had fair winds and a following sea, making for an easy crossing and providing a great opportunity to spend time on the bow watching birds and enjoying the sunshine.
