Ena kotou katoatoa, or, hello, everyone!
Today we arrived in Makatea, and our day started with Zodiac trips to get everyone safely to Temao Habour. We split into three groups for a bird walk, a nature walk, and a truck tour that started on the northwest end of the island and ended on the east side. As we crossed the island, we stopped at an incredible overlook with panoramic views, and we ended at an underwater cave system.
After our amazing adventure, we gathered back on the ship with our special guests, Mayor Julian and his son Tapu, who serenaded our guests with beautiful island songs.
Overall, it was a fantastic day. Meitaki maata e Kia Manuia, or, thank you, everyone!
