The first day of a new decade broke clear and calm as we dropped anchor at Puerto Gato, a small elbow of sandstone jutting out from the east coast of the Baja Peninsula. We landed on a long white sand beach and set out on natural history and photography walks. Later in the morning the wind came up and we had to head back to National Geographic Venture but not before many photos were taken and many memories made.
National Geographic Venture
On the morning of Thursday, National Geographic Venture navigated into Puerto los Gatos, a large bay in the Sea of Cortez. Here, guests would spend their day snorkeling, swimming, hiking, or beachcombing in the beautiful Baja sun.
