San Jose del Cabo and Friars Rock

Mar 13, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


After many days out in the wilderness of Baja California Sur, we landed at a port this morning. San Jose del Cabo is a fantastic town rich in history and buzzing with industry. We were escorted to an estuary to photograph and watch the birds traveling down the Pacific Flyway thru Baja. We also watched a cultural demonstration and glass blowing. When we left port and made our way outside, we were treated to an incredible display of Humpback Whales engaged in a “Heat Run”. Our final treat of the day was a view of Land’s End in Baja, Friar’s Rocks and a green flash sunset.

About the Author

James Hyde

Naturalist

James is your typical free-range Pacific Northwest outdoorsy type. Born in Seattle and reared nearby on Vashon Island, he is most comfortable in slightly cold and damp weather. James joined the Lindblad team in July 2016 as a dive buddy and has been in love with expedition travel since. On his own he has traveled to Europe, Asia, and Australia, but with Lindblad he hopes to continue his adventures across the globe, searching out the beauties of the natural world. An avid scuba diver James can’t help being excited about whales, sharks, and pinnipeds, but he will also happily bend your ear about underwater slugs and invertebrates. It’s best just to humor him about these things.
