We started our day on board National Geographic Orion with a hearty breakfast. There was much anticipation as the weather was fantastic, and we had a big day in and out of the waters off Moso, Vanuatu.

After scouting the area, the expedition team lowered the platforms and set up a snorkeling platform. Before long, we were able to get in the water to look at the myriad of life found in this diversity hot spot. The undersea team was keen to capture some images of the tiny life found in the area. Some of this life can be seen in the included photos.

We returned to the ship for lunch, and we were off again. We had a relaxing afternoon on the beach with swimming, kayaking, and standup paddleboarding. The hospitality team surprised us with ice cream and punch on the beach.
