Apr 11, 2019 - 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!
