Offshore Fun near San Ignacio Lagoon

Jan 23, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


Choppier conditions in the Pacific today made for both a challenge and a more adventurous cruise! Winds whipped across San Ignacio Lagoon, preventing our entry, but this did provide opportunity to explore the seas further offshore. We spotted flying fish, phalaropes, common dolphins, Pacific white-sided dolphins, and several gray whales off the coast of the peninsula. With the wind at our backs, one could not help but smile knowing the sheer amount of beauty to be witnessed out here today.
