Bird Island , San Jorge Island , is a must.
The Islands of San Jorge, better known to us as Bird Island , are located about 27 miles from Rocky Point in the Bay of San Jorge . These islands are a great tourist attraction, mainly due to the many different species of birds that find shelter there, such as marine swallows, seagulls and more, not forgetting the blue footed bootie. Bird Island also has great herds of Sea Lions, one of the biggest colonies of the sea lions in the gulf of California, about 2,500 of them at any given time. Del Mar charters offers 2 daily trips to Bird Island . The average trip takes 4 to 5 hours. Very often, going to and from the island, the dolphin swim with the boat. There has even been some whales sighted on occasion not far from the boat, on these trips.
But the most fun to be had is SWIMMING WITH THE BABY SEA LIONS at the island. The trips to bird island includes beer, margaritas, water, soda and burritos. Don't forget your camara!
