Aug 25, 2018 - National Geographic Orion
Today National Geographic Orion spent the entire day in the Bay of Virgins along the dramatic coastline of Fatu Hiva, the southernmost of the Marquesas Islands. Headlands sculpted from volcanic rocks transported us to another time and dimension. Here we went ashore to explore and meet the local people who greeted us with flowers, fruits, local arts and crafts, and a cultural performance. During the afternoon we enjoyed this remote tropical paradise on the water exploring by Zodiac, kayaks, and on stand-up paddleboards. A dramatic sunset provided a fitting climax to an amazing day.
