La Fortuna & San Jose Del Cabo

Mar 13, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


After cruising all night the National Geographic Sea Bird made it to the area known as La Fortuna, just off the East Cape of Baja California Sur. The waters of La Fortuna and Gorda Banks are known for high concentrations of humpback whales during the winter months. We spent the morning observing numerous whales and multiple cow and calf pairs. After lunch some of the guests explored the streets of San Jose del Cabo, while others explored the estuary in search of the many varieties of birds that inhabit the area. During the evening we had cocktails on the bow as we sailed around Finisterra and Land’s End, a beautiful rock formation just outside of the popular tourist destination of Cabo San Lucas

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.
