This voyage had some of the best offerings that travelers and wildlife seekers could hope for: superb Pacific weather, warm and gorgeous waters, along with company equally as charming. Our visit to Tahanea was no exception to any of these. Here are five photographs to give a viewing sense of the local marine life we had the good fortune of encountering.
National Geographic Orion
Another spectacular day in the Pacific on board National Geographic Orion , and one which was the perfect culmination point of an incredible trip. There was little time to reminisce over the previous 16 days with another packed itinerary ahead of us. The majority of our guests were treated to views of three endemic species of birds, a dip in a torchlit grotto, followed by mind-blowing views of several sperm whale pods—just another ordinary day in paradise!
