As is now the norm on this voyage, many of us gathered on the outer decks very early in the morning. We enjoyed the last of the stars and the fading moon as we began a new day of adventure with seabirds and wildlife all around us. We entered the Fakarava Atoll and navigated our way to the small community of Rotoava, where we had the chance to explore by foot or by bike. In the afternoon, we geared up for some great snorkeling. We enjoyed glass-bottom Zodiac outings to discover a myriad of fish and other forms of life in these waters. At sunset, a very special surprise awaited us. The hotel team prepared a floating cocktail party on a secluded beach for us to enjoy as we watched the sunset. A fantastic ending to a very special day!
