En Route to Hawaii, 6/5/2019, National Geographic Orion

  • Aboard the National Geographic Orion
  • French Polynesia & Pacific Islands

The last full day at sea found National Geographic Orion only 125 miles from the Big Island. The day was spent with educational lectures from the natural history staff, a clinic on knot tying and time spent on the bow looking for wildlife. As the ship drew nearer to the islands it passed over some hidden sea mounts that often attracts marine life such as sea birds and larger fish. The day ended with one last open ocean sunset.
