After breakfast passengers and staff boarded pangas to embark on day one of whale watching in Bahía Almejas. A stop at a mangrove forest offered very special close up views of nesting frigate birds, cormorants and several other avian species. Whale watching was truly exhilarating; gray whales in every direction spy-hopping, breaching and diving. After that we landed on Isla Santa Margarita for naturalist walks, kayaking, a beach barbecue, and a full moon hike. Another fantastic day in Baja California Sur.
