Hull Canal to Boca de Soledad

Feb 28, 2020 - National Geographic Sea Lion


The day dawned clear and sunny, with temperature around 65 ◦F and almost no wind. We made our way north into Hull Canal, picking up our local pilot to guide us through this narrow, navigable channel, observing a multitude of bird species as we wound our way through the mangroves and sand bars. After anchoring just south of the Boca de Soledad, a northern narrow entrance into Magdalena Bay, we enjoyed a presentation by Sofia Merino on gray whales. The afternoon was spent exploring a nearby beautiful sandy beach by bikes or afoot, and connecting with the abundant whales that inhabit the bay.
