What a beautiful day in Puerto Magdalena! After a stunning sunrise during our morning stretch class with Tina, our wellness specialist, guests disembarked for a morning of various hiking options. We saw a fully reticulated gray whale skeleton and hiked in the arid climate of Isla Magdalena, through cacti to an overlook of the Pacific Ocean. In addition to humpback whale spouts in the distance, many guests were surprised to have a peregrine falcon fly overhead!

After a delicious lunch onboard National Geographic Sea Lion, our afternoon was filled with more hiking, fat-tire biking, and tour options in town. Whether hiking deeper into the hills, biking alongside the coast to a sandy beach, or learning about the local desalination plant, everyone ended their sunny day at Miramar, a local restaurant run by Chejo, that served delicious guacamole and cervezas (beer!).

Our splendid second full day of activities ended with some fun recaps about peregrine falcons, shells, and barnacle reproductive parts. Who could ask for anything better?
