Las Tres Marietas Islands

With our friends Dan and Daryll visiting from San Francisco we packed up the boat with other cruiser friends from Hemisphere Dancer and Sun Dancer and headed out to these islands for a day of snorkling and just enjoying the sun. We saw an enormous number of whales on the way out and on the return to La Cruz.
