  • Aboard the National Geographic Venture

The second day of our adventure found National Geographic Venture at Los Islotes, a small rock outcropping in Espiritu Santo National Park. This small island is home to a colony of California sea lions. We spent the morning in the water, snorkeling with the juvenile sea lion pups. In the afternoon the ship repositioned so everyone could go ashore, but on the way we were distracted by a huge pod of common dolphins. The dolphins played in our wake and rode the bow as we cut through the water. When we finally did pull ourselves away from the marine acrobats, we had a chance to play on Kelly’s Beach. We broke into groups and tried out kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, hiking, and even beach yoga!
