Los Islotes, Bonanza

Feb 05, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Today we visited two wonderful sites in the Gulf of California, Los Islotes, (a National Park that is the home of hundreds of California sea lions) and Bonanza, (a beautiful site where we not only had walks, snorkeling, and kayaking, but a delicious cook out on the beach). However, for me, the most exciting event of the day were the multiple encounters with two species of dolphins, both bottlenose and common.

About the Author

Steve Morello

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Steve Morello has had a long and colorful career in the natural history world. Born in New Jersey he was lucky to be able to summer on the shores of Cape Cod. Whether it was exploring the tidal pools, snorkeling along the beach, or hiking in the dunes, it all came together to instill in him a deep connection to the natural world. It was no surprise that he would return to the Cape as a whale researcher in his adult years. It was on the Cape that Steve first became involved in guiding, and for 15 years acted as naturalist on whale watching boats in the Gulf of Maine. Steve worked with groups creating environmental education material for school programs and soon found another one of his passions, photography.
