At Sea and Bahía Concepción

Apr 12, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


A leisurely morning included presentations and a group of pilot whales as we cruised south in the Sea of Cortez. During lunch, National Geographic Venture anchored in Conception Bay, a deep indentation beside the Baja California Peninsula. In the afternoon we had the opportunity to snorkel around several islets and cruise by Zodiac along the scenic shoreline. A variety of fish, birds, and a small group of bottlenose dolphins were spotted over the course of the afternoon. A rich diversity of plant life grows on the islets and on the adjacent peninsula, including several species of cacti.

Back on board, our warm, sunny day culminated with cocktails, recap, and dinner.
