Ensenada Grande & Punta Dispensa

Jan 29, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


Today the wind conditions on Gulf of California were quite strong. This wind is very important for the vital upwelling currents to take place in the gulf. Without these winds, life would not be as abundant, and this place would not be as interesting as it is. Espiritu Santo Island is one of the most beautiful islands in the gulf, and it offers fantastic opportunities to enjoy all activities in a day like today. We had wonderful hikes, we kayaked, and explored by expedition landing craft. For many of us, snorkeling at Punta Dispensa was a real highlight.

About the Author

Alberto Montaudon

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Alberto fell in love with nature as a young child. Born and raised in Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico, he spent most of his childhood exploring the Chairlel Lagoon and the Tamesi River. Each morning he would patiently wait in his rowboat for sunrise to witness the great groups of migrating birds that would land on the water. His father taught him from a very early age to understand, love, and respect nature. As a result of his upbringing, Alberto became biologist and decided to follow his passion and became a naturalist. At age 21, Alberto began working with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic in Baja California. Since then he has been sharing interests that range from bird biology to undersea exploration to wildlife photography with thousands of guests.
