Los Islotes and Isla Partida

Mar 08, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


While all those aboard the National Geographic Sea Bird were appreciating an impressive Baja sunrise, our naturalists on the bow spotted a pod of common dolphins that we had the privilege of watching bow ride and play in the wake of the ship. The first activity of the day was snorkeling amongst the playful sea lions of Los Islotes. Then, the afternoon was spent in and near the shallow turquoise waters of the bay of Ensenada Grande and part of Isla Partida. Activities included natural history hikes, photo walks, kayaking, and paddleboarding. The day ended with a beach barbeque with tasty food, storytelling, star gazing, and even some singing.

About the Author

Ryder Redfield

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Growing up at the base of the Cascade Mountains in the tiny Oregon town of Sisters meant that Ryder was surrounded by wilderness. A childhood of hiking, fishing, hunting for arrowheads, camping, and upland bird hunting resulted in the outdoors feeling far more comfortable than hectic city streets. His passion for the outdoors has perpetually grown and, upon graduating from the University of Oregon, he embraced his wanderlust with even greater vigor. His adventures eventually led him to working with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic as a photo instructor.
