Tour Highlights

  • On a five-night expedition to one of the last places on Earth to be settled by humans, see paradise come to life in the iconic landscapes of jagged green peaks, pristine beaches, and the bluest of blue waters; and connect with the local culture with visits to Polynesia’s most significant ancestral site and a family-run vanilla plantation.
  • Discover iconic tropical landscapes, ancient cultural sites, and an extraordinary undersea world.
  • See iconic and awe-inspiring landscapes like Bora Bora’s verdant Mount Otemanu, jutting 2,400 feet above turquoise waters, and Makatea’s steep cliffs, which drop straight to deserted beaches.
  • Dive and snorkel in crystalline waters, experiencing an awe-inspiring undersea world of 16-foot manta rays, green sea turtles, black-tipped reef sharks, and enormous schools of fish.
  • Swim into an otherworldly grotto on Makatea and float in a hidden cave surrounded by stalagmites and stalactites.
  • Learn about Polynesian history and culture at sites including Marae Taputapuatea, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • Travel aboard the 102-guest National Geographic Orion, with our expert team of naturalists including an underwater specialist, wellness specialist and a professional photographer. Their knowledge and passion are key to your expedition.
