We sailed to the northernmost area of our voyage, the Espiritu Santo Archipelago, home of one of the most important California sea lion reproduction colonies in the south of the Gulf of California. It was declared a National Park by presidential decree in 2007, and it is more than 48,000 square hectares long.

Guests and staff snorkeled in crystal clear waters with dozens of juvenile sea lions. We admired diverse schools of tropical fish and cruised around fascinating rock formations.

Once back aboard, we encountered a few blue whales on our way to Puerto Escondido, Loreto as we prepared for a farewell dinner and for disembarkation tomorrow morning.
