Chris (Jefe xx Thank You) worked her organising magic once more and sourced a day aboard the motor catamaran Planean. The crews of Always Saturday (Ron and Nancy), Saliander (Ray and Pete), Scott-Free (Chris and Steve), Sheer Tenacity (Rod and Mary), Sweet Surrender (Philippe and Danielle) and Beez Neez set off. We left the anchorage, looked back at San Cristobal and sped along for a half an hour to pull in to a quiet spot by Isla Lobos. Our first opportunity to snorkel with sea lions.

We snorkeled for a while and when the resting baby seals had got used to us, they jumped in to play. Far too fast to take their pictures, but so much fun to see their faces up close and personal in their own domain. I swear they were smiling, as they dived, looked, breathed out bubbles, turned impossibly tight circles and splashed around us. I had to make do with pictures of the fish.
