La Entrada and Hull Canal, Magdalena Bay

Jan 17, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


National Geographic Sea Bird had a very easy ride overnight from the southernmost tip of the Baja California Peninsula, northward along the Pacific Coast. As the skies lightened, Isla Santa Margarita was in sight, and by 10 a.m. we entered Magdalena Bay. We had a presentation by National Geographic Guest Speaker Greg Marshall, who told us the story of his invention—the Crittercam, which has captured about 80 species of wild animals and given researchers a lot of insight into their natural lives. In the afternoon, we transited the narrow, mangrove-lined Hull Canal, between the peninsula and Isla Magdalena. Many species of herons and shorebirds, as well as cormorants, white ibis, brown pelicans, and gulls were sighted from the deck. We anchored near Boca de Soledad at the northern end of Isla Magdalena and had a chance to go ashore to walk and photograph among the dunes.
