Cabo Pulmo & the Cape Area

Jan 08, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird


We spent the first day of our expedition in the Sea of Cortez off the southernmost portion of the peninsula of Baja California. Here, we first visited Cabo Pulmo National Park, a small 7,111 hectare marine-protected area that recently proved to be a great conservation story. We had a great time snorkeling before heading to Land’s End and had the pleasure of watching a number of breaching humpback whales along the way. What a great start!
