That’s the Isla Espíritu Santo just north of where I went through the San Lorenzo Channel on my way from Los Muertos. I’m really thankful my plans have changed like they have as I had originally planned on blowing right by here. The more I read about the Sea of Cortez the more aware I become of what a rich, diverse and thriving marine ecosystems it is and I’m really anxious to get out there and start seeing it and experiencing it. Ensenada Grande beach, on Isla Partida was voted the most beautiful beach in Mexico by The Travel Magazine and one of the top 12 beaches in the world. As Wikipedia says “The surrounding reefs are home to parrotfish, angelfish, trumpetfish, Moorish idols, and rainbow wrasse, while many other species pass nearby including sharks, rays,turtles, dolphins, and even whales. Birds include brown pelicans, great blue herons, snowy egrets, turkey vultures, and hummingbirds. A large sea lion colony resides on Los Islotes, off the north tip of the islands; snorkeling with the females and young is a highlight of many tours.” All the green symbols are anchorages and I intend to explore it pretty extensively.
