Punta Colorada and Puerto Gato

Apr 19, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird

The morning began before dawn, with Zodiac rides to the beach on Punta Colorada. Everyone took the opportunity to go for a morning stroll as the sun slowly crept up over the horizon. After sunrise, it was out into the blue water for some cruising as we searched for wildlife. It was not long before we had several bottlenose dolphins riding the bow. As afternoon began, we dropped anchor at Puerto Gato and spent the rest of the day on the beach. While some people glided over the crystal-clear water on kayaks and paddleboards, others chose to get a better vantage point by hiking the nearby peaks. When the desert sun proved to be too warm, there was the chance to cool off with some fish-filled snorkeling. The day ended with sunset over the bay and a fireside barbecue!
