Today was our first day exploring Bahia Magdalena. We woke up to an incredible rainbow over the mountains and mangroves of Isla Magdalena, and we even got rained on a couple times, a rarity here in Baja California Sur! In the morning, we explored the protected waterways of the mangroves of El Barril by kayak and standup paddleboard and then by Zodiac. After a lovely lunch on board National Geographic Sea Bird, we dropped anchor again for a hike across the sand dunes to Sand Dollar Beach. We dipped our toes in the Pacific Ocean and explored the island’s endemic plant life. What a wonderful start to our voyage together!
