National Geographic Venture was anchored off the coast of Espiritu Santo Island this morning. Hikes departed from the beach and traversed the scope of an arroyo. The start was particularly interesting as we walked along an estuary that contained four different species of mangroves: red, black, white, and sweet. Snorkelers spent the morning at a rock reef area amongst schools of various juvenile reef fishes in beautifully clear water. We transitioned to La Paz for the afternoon. There we enjoyed a folkloric dance presentation and mariachi band, followed by a delicious meal on the Malecon, before returning to the ship in the evening.
