Isla San Francisco

Mar 14, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


Following last night’s passage through the Sea of Cortez, National Geographic Venture arrived at Isla San Francisco just before breakfast. We had the good fortune not long thereafter with blue whale that surprised us just as we were making our turn toward the anchorage for the day! The mighty creature gave us a few good looks and turns, but soon disappeared. It was thus time for the ship to anchor and begin day’s activities of kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, and snorkeling. As far as ventures in Baja California are concerned, this day was full and equally satisfying.
