San Blas to Isla Isabel
28 November 2017
November 27 - 28, 2017 We sailed two hours and motor sailed seven hours 40 miles from San Blas to this protected, national ecological island park. From time to time it hosts scientists studying the abundant bird population – blue footed boobies and frigates inhabit the island by the thousands. Jacques Cousteau filmed one of his documentaries here in 1975 “The Sea Birds of Isabela”. The anchorage is small and the sea bottom is very rocky, so it can be a little tricky. We had no problems – but did not enjoy the anchor chain continually scraping across the rocks!
