Just before our wellness specialist Lani began her stretching class on deck 6, we arrived at the Pinaki atoll in French Polynesia. This very remote, rarely visited atoll is one of many in the Tuamotus group. Soon after breakfast, we unloaded Zodiacs and the platform to give guests the chance to dive and snorkel in the pristine tropical waters. The water temperature and the weather were perfectly suited for the activity.

We spent a perfect morning exploring another one of these paradisiacal atolls. We learned so much and got in lots of exercise to earn the (as always) delicious lunch awaiting us upon our return to National Geographic Orion.
