We woke up to a beautiful sunrise as we dropped anchor near Ensenada el Cardonal for an activity-packed day! After breakfast, we snorkeled along a shallow reef below a volcanic rock wall. Next, we had the option for kayaking or Zodiac tours of the bay. We then returned to the ship for a tasty lunch. Afterwards, we hiked along an arroyo, a dry riverbed. We saw at least four different types of cacti: cardon, organ pipe, galloping, and cholla. On the way back to the ship, we observed birds diving into the water and a sea turtle. We ended the day with a wonderful presentation from undersea specialist Sierra Phillips. She showed us highlights of footage from a scuba dive. What an amazing day!
