Los Islotes and Isla San Francisco

Feb 20, 2020 - National Geographic Venture


The morning began with a fiery sunrise followed by a roll into the water to encounter the myriad of California sea lions waiting to play with our guests. With loud brays and quick movements in the water, these marine mammals had us experiencing a roll of emotions as they swirled around. The afternoon brought us to Isla San Francisco where we snorkeled, beach-combed, searched the intertidal landscape and climbed high upon the hill. Finishing our explorations with a sunset barbeque for all to enjoy.
