We woke up anchored in Almejas Bay at the southernmost tip of the Magdalena-Almejas Lagoon Complex. After breakfast, all guests and staff boarded local pangas for two rounds of gray whale watching. This time, we observed adult whales in reproductive condition. They were ready to mate, and we spotted various behaviors, including spyhops and breaching. Overall, staff and guests observed almost 30 whales in frenzied activity to construct the next generation of their own species. In the afternoon, we took delightful walks on the long, sandy shores of Magdalena Island and enjoyed observing the numerous invertebrates unveiled by low tide.
