After spending the last two days in boats to see grey whales up close, it was great to step foot on beautiful Magdalena Island and explore at sunset. This is one of our favorite places to spend sunset, not only for its surreal sandy landscape, but also for its rich cultural history. While driving a Zodiac back to the beach at sunset, we saw the green flash four times.
National Geographic Sea Bird
Today was the last day of the Baja California season for National Geographic Sea Bird . We had a very nice day of whale-watching. The weather was pleasant, and grey whales were getting ready for their long migration north. Some of today’s highlights were the birds we found as we headed towards Canal de Rehusa, where we encountered California grey whales. Among the birds, we observed a majestic juvenile bald eagle, apparently in its third year of age. We spotted an immature peregrine falcon just behind a myriad of pelicans, gulls, and cormorants. We can certainly see a lot when we stop to look!
