Bahía Almejas and Sand Dollar Beach

Feb 05, 2020 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Today we had an incredible experience watching the very active gray whales of Bahía Almejas. Later we landed on Isla Santa Magdalena. We hiked across the dunes for a beautiful view of Sand Dollar Beach and Bahía Santa Maria. We wrapped up our day with closing words and a slideshow of our guests photographs from the expedition.
