In the second part of our voyage, today National Geographic Venture sailed to reach Punta Colorada. This magnificent location is on San Jose Island, with red, orange, and ochre-tinted sandstones with mollusk fossils. The morning was busy with hikes, kayaking, and snorkeling. Our guests observed the varied vegetation of the island with lots of blooming plants that colored the desert! In the afternoon, we explored the waters south of the Loreto National Marine Park and found a humpback cow with a calf feeding on the rich marine resources of the area. The mother whale was fishing with her enormous mouth right at the ocean’s surface; we were able to see her baleens, tongue, eyes, and throat grooves that expanded during her feast.
