Isla San Marcos

Apr 16, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


A leisurely morning aboard National Geographic Venture allowed guests to enjoy this pleasant day out on the decks as well as presentations about the distinct geography and wildlife that makes Baja California such a beloved destination for those visiting.

Our afternoon itinerary put us on a beach at the east side of Isla San Marcos. Conditions were superb—vivid blue skies under an open sun—and we had opportunities to hike in an arroyo and explore the coast by kayak, stand-up paddleboard, and Zodiac. Highlights on land included cardón and senita cacti, zebra-tailed lizards, and a rattlesnake! On the Zodiac tour, some of the guests had an amazing encounter with bottlenose dolphins.
