We remain anchored at the vicinity of Isla Santa Margarita, close to California peninsula the Bahía Almejas (Clam Bay) where we had our second opportunity to go whalewatching, looking for the group of gray whales that reproduces in this lagoon.

First thing in the morning, wellness therapist Allison Dickey and a group of enthusiastic guests did the morning stretch class prior to our outing to watch whales.

We went out in the company of the local pangueros who live in the close town of Puerto Chale and in good weather conditions. We had close views of the adult gray whales that congregate in this lagoon, the southernmost portion of their winter breeding grounds in Mexico.

We also had a second opportunity to do kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding as well as natural history walks into the island of Santa Margarita and we finished our day with a delicious dinner at the beach and a bonfire, organized by the galley and the hotel department of National Geographic Sea lion.
