Puerto Gato, 2/2/2022, National Geographic Venture

  • Aboard the National Geographic Venture
  • Baja California

Our morning started with a very unusual event: it rained! Not a drenching rain, but just enough to make the desert flora very happy and all of us a bit wet. But no matter, light rain did not dampen anyone’s spirits. We hiked, kayaked and snorkeled. Beautiful Puerto Gato is not a port, nor was it named for the cats that inhabit the region. Instead, the name came from the nurse sharks that sport whiskers and were once found in these bays.
