Location: Ua Pou, Marquesas

In our newfound newly uninhabited bay, we made excellent use of a free day. Throughout the day, crew members were in and out of scuba gear, cleaning the hull of hitchhikers (barnacles) who had been with us since the Las Perlas Islands. Multiple students landed on the island to hike the pristine landscape of Ua Pou. Around dinner time, we pulled up our stern anchor and decided to leave twelve hours early for the Tuamotu’s.
