Los Islotes to San Francisco Island

Jan 30, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


Guests that rose early this morning for the stretch class on the upper sundeck were met with a gorgeous green flash off the horizon—not a bad way to start a day of adventuring!

We kept close to the sea lion’s rookery of Los Islotes for our morning expedition.

Later on, as we were sailing north to reach the protection of San Francisco Island, Sean Neilson gave us an introduction to photography. We spent the remainder of the day on San Francisco Island hiking, snorkeling, and tide-pooling, the polishing it all off with a delicious beach barbecue. Satisfying was the word of the day!

About the Author

Michelle Brugiere

Wellness Specialist

Michelle grew up in France and found “home” upon her arrival in California in 1985. In 1987, a near death experience opened the doors to the deep connection between Body Mind Spirit and she became fascinated with the human body. Instead of furthering her teaching career she became a licensed massage therapist and wellness practitioner. She discovered many ways to deepen and understand the connection through the art of therapeutic massage and a daily practice of yoga, meditation, and qigong. Her deep connection to Nature and her passion for adventure and the great outdoors took her to many mountain tops in Colorado, California and South America, rock climbing on beautiful sandstone spires in Utah and on challenging granite walls in Colorado and Argentina. Her love for water took her swimming with dolphins in Kauai and New Zealand, dancing with sea lions and manta rays in the Sea of Cortez, and sea kayaking to the islands in Baja.
