Isla San Esteban & Isla Rasa

Apr 18, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird

Today we enjoyed some of the best of both land and sea. Bottlenose dolphins joined us in front of our bow before breakfast. Afterwards we made a morning visit to Isla San Esteban to search for two large, endemic lizards that share the island—the pinto chuckwalla and the spiny-tailed iguana. We found these and much more on this interesting island. Isla Rasa was our afternoon destination. Teeming with Heermann’s gulls and elegant terns, it can be an overwhelming experience to visit this small island.
