Bahia Magdalena

Mar 17, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


This morning we awoke to another beautiful Baja sunrise as the National Geographic Sea Lion cruised south toward La Entrada, the main entrance to Magdalena Bay. Soon after breakfast we were making our easterly turn into the bay, where we would be spending the rest of the day taking care of last-minute-details, and going for walks on Sand Dollar Beach, roughly a twenty mile stretch of Pacific coastline. It was a medium walk, over vast sand dunes on Isla Magdalena, to get to this magnificent stretch of Pacific coastline, and the photographic bounty that awaited us there!
