After traveling over 24 hours from all corners of the world (Hong Kong, Canada, Mexico, France, Boston, DC), the whole Bora Bora crew is almost together. After a quick 4 hour rest in Tahiti, the crew flew to Raiatea to get aboard Pelican – our new home for three weeks. Student attended the briefing as we learned from the local guide all of the excellent things that we can experience in French Polynesia – snorkling with Manta Rays, beach walks, diving, hiking, horseback riding. Shipmates are organizing the menu and going on their first provision trip now. The whole crew is a bit exhausted, but cannot wait to get our final shipmate and start this big adventure!
