We spent the day at the atolls of Toau and Fakarava in the Tuamotu Archipelago, located to the northeast of Tahiti. A few storm cells rolled through early in the day but cleared quickly. National Geographic Orion’s first snorkel operation in over two years took place without a hitch. Guests enjoyed the wide diversity of colorful undersea life and corals. In the afternoon, we had a few hours to explore the village of Rotoava on Fakarava by foot and on bike. Rotoava is one of the largest and most beautiful atolls in French Polynesia.
