We sailed south through Canal de La Soledad to set anchor at El Barril, one of the highlights of our expedition. Here we did an outing with kayaks and Zodiacs, surrounded by red and sweet mangroves, with the San Lazaro Mountains as background.

After lunch we moved forward to have our farewell activity — hiking through the astonishing sand dunes of Isla Magdalena. Here we also enjoyed our only chance to admire the Pacific Ocean at Bahia Santa Maria, also known as Sand Dollar Beach. Afterwards we came aboard to share our last recap and dinner together aboard National Geographic Sea Lion.
