After another spectacular sunrise, we made our way to Isla San Francisco to spend our final day exploring the ecosystem of this remote island. Snorkelers spread out under the rocky cliff where pink rocks stood out against the vibrant blue sea. Crystal clear water allowed us to spot fish, including puffers and angelfish, as they darted in and about the reef. This protected cove attracts microscopic sea jellies. More than a few of us found ourselves swarmed with the little cnidarians, a feeling we will not soon forget!

 

After our water excursion, we traversed the small island on foot. We enjoyed exploring the beach, the salt flat and the ridge line. From the top, we saw turquoise waters for miles and miles. We sat in awe of the beauty as we watched fish foraging far below. Isla San Francisco was the perfect end to an amazing trip in the Vermilion Sea.
