Isla San Francisco

Feb 24, 2020 - National Geographic Venture


Today we awoke with some reprieve against the winds battering this side Baja California, near the idyllic and beautiful Isla San Francisco. The water was calm and clear, and we spent the morning hiking at dawn to watch the sunrise. Then in the afternoon we hopped into the water to snorkel surrounded by an abundance of fish who were also perhaps seeking shelter in the reefs of our little bay. Finally, we sailed off watching an epic sunset waiting for the adventures that tomorrow will bring.
