Magdalena Bay, Baja

Feb 13, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Our final full day in Magdalena Bay was filled with more incredible whale sightings.  In the morning, we enjoyed many close encounters with the gray whales before saying goodbye to the shallow lagoon.  In the afternoon we entered the Pacific seeing more gray whales and then at sunset a group of humpback whales.
