Ensenada Grande

Jan 05, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


During our first day of exploration in the archipelago of Espiritu Santo, the National Geographic Sea Bird anchored at Ensenada Grande, the most beautiful of the island’s coves. A long hike took guests and naturalists to the heights of the eastern escarpment; with the magnificent Sea of Cortez as a background, we took few minutes of silence and meditation on the rim just to connect ourselves with nature. In the afternoon, exploration via kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and snorkeling allowed guests to discover some of the minute animals hidden on the rocky shores or in the water. A well-deserved dinner on shore, plus wine and beer and brownies, closed a full day of joy, wellness, and learning.
