Gorda Banks, San Jose del Cabo

Jan 31, 2019 - National Geographic Venture

Our morning was spent being enveloped by humpback whales as we neared today’s destination. We were able to watch a group of several males cavorting and breaching around with a female and her calf.

In the afternoon we visited the historic Mission of San Jose del Cabo as well as a bird estuary, led by our group’s naturalist.

We concluded our day in the company of a lovely sunset as we passed Cabo San Lucas, heading out from the Sea of Cortez and into the vast Pacific.
