Well our final day of 2011 season is here and we started the day in a great place at a great time–sunrise at Punta Colorado Isla San Jose. This is one of my favorite places in all of Baja.Thank you to Ilka Serpell who took this shot of Searcher at Punta Colorado earlier this year.
We had a beach walk on this beautiful island and then started south towards Los Islotes looking for whales. We saw a juvenile humpback and a fin whale in windy conditions. We arived at Los Islotes and the wind died and we were able get a skiff ride and a snorkel in. We had great looks at blue-footed boobies and lots of sea lions.
We ended the trip by seeing a big group of long-beaked common dolphin and then had a quick look at a dwarf sperm whale.
What a great day for our final day! And what an incredible season we had with really good whale sightings all season and terrific guests! I can’t say enough about the people we met this year and how much fun we all had.
Thank you all so very much for joining us this year and we hope to see some of you in the future.
