Surrounded by Sea Lions at Puerto Refugio


Day Three (the second day at sea) was undertaken with an early morning push-off from the beautiful beach of Gonzaga bay and a quick encounter with the ever-present Sargasso weed. The day was planned to include a relatively long overwater crossing to Bahia Refugio at the North end of Isla Angel de la Guarda, probably the longest island in the midriff area. This well protected bay is home to a large colony of sea lions, hundreds of whom jumped in to circle and greet the Waverunners, in spite of constant barking of contrary orders by the biggest bulls. The shore of the bay provided the first encounter with sting rays that bury themselves in the sand in the shallow waters; fortunately, like rattlesnakes, they are eager to get out of your way if you give them the chance to do so.
