Port 9 Papeete — Sailing out of Nanuu Bay


On November 5, 2015, the Crown Princess left our last port of call for the long voyage back to Los Angeles.  The time of day was perfect, not only for the front-lighted views of Papeete and Nanuu Bay, but also for the magnificent sunset you’ll see on Wednesday, and again on Friday.

Yachts of Nanuu Bay

Nanuu Bay’s marina offered up some really fun yachts to photograph, and the angle of the sun left shimmering reflections on those yachts dancing upon the water:

Looking back into town we could see the Notre-Dame Cathedral of Papeete, and later the Protestant Church of Papeete:

We also sailed past Pā’ōfa’i Gardens, as well as that colorful Pā’ōfa’i Gardens-based outrigger rental business featured last week in some photo:

Also on display in the cooling afternoon breeze were people paddling about in outriggers:


We’ll continue our sail away on Wednesday, but until then here is today’s photo gallery and slide show:
