Los Islotes and Isla San Francisco

Dec 18, 2018 - National Geographic Venture

Today culminated what it means to be in Baja California for those onboard National Geographic Venture. We woke up with the sun to interact with the residents of Los Islotes – hundreds of juvenile California sea lions, brown pelicans, and frigatebirds – by snorkeling and Zodiac cruising. After lunch, we anchored at Isla San Francisco for an afternoon of kayaking, paddleboarding, and hiking. To celebrate a fantastic voyage, we ended the night with a barbeque dinner around a beach bonfire.
