Guests aboard National Geographic Resolution had a memorable day in Miyakojima, Japan. They began with a visit to the historic Miyako Lighthouse. The lighthouse offers panoramic views of the coastline and the Pacific Ocean, serving as a reminder of Japan's maritime heritage.
Later in the day, guests went snorkeling, where they explored coral reefs and encountered a rich diversity of marine life. The fascinating creatures they spotted included: Picasso triggerfish, known for striking and colorful patterns that resemble abstract art; shrimp gobies, which form fascinating symbiotic partnerships with burrowing shrimp, offering them protection in exchange for shelter; and a loggerhead sea turtle, which was very relaxed around the visiting snorkelers.
This day provided a unique blend of cultural insights and nature exploration, leaving guests with lasting memories of their time in Miyakojima and the remarkable marine creatures that call the underwater world home.
