National Geographic Venture cruised south throughout the night, reaching the vicinity of Isla del Carmen by sunrise. It was another beautiful morning as we searched for marine life from the decks and enjoyed a nice brunch on board. We were delighted by great views of a humpback whale.

In the afternoon, there was much activity at Puerto Los Gatos on the Baja California peninsula. Guests had opportunities for snorkeling, kayaking, standup paddleboarding, exploring the landscape, and/or relaxing on the beach. A delicious beach barbecue ensued, followed by s’mores, stargazing, night photography, searching for scorpions, and gathering around the bonfire.
