Sea of Cortez: Walks on the Wilder Side

In addition to visiting fishing villages, the Sea offered a variety of stunning unpopulated anchorages which provided an opportunity to stretch our legs and strengthen our snorkeling skills.  These anchorages included Caleta Los Lobos, Ensenada Grande, and Isla San Francisco.

Ensenada Grande is on the Isla Espiritu Santu.  Part of Mexico’s park system, the trail is well signed.  This sign marks the overlook from the trail’s east side.

We arrived at Isla San Franciso, about 46 miles north of La Paz, at 11:00 p.m. under a full moon after a great sail south from Agua Verde.  The island has great ridge hike.

This shot shows why we felt comfortable coming into the anchorage at night.  The bay is large and the bottom sandy.  If you look carefully half way down the picture in the right hand third of the picture, you can see Eric walking towards  the bay with his snorkeling gear.
