Bahia Marquer – May 5-7, 2011

Giant Eagle Ray under the surface in Bahia Marquer
We left Thrusday morning and sailed over to Isla Carmen. On the way over to Puerto Ballandra we got a report from Corvida that the anchorage was invested with bees, so we changed the plan and went to Bahia Marquer.  It was a beautiful spot with rocks hanging over the clear water. We saw a giant Spotted Eagle Ray and followed it in the dinghy. 

Later, Full Shell showed up and we all went to their boat for cocktails.

The next day a large pod of dolphins came into the bay and played around for about an hour. We took a lot of pictures, but our camera is acting up, so not much to show. Maybe we can get some photos from Eric.

Saturday we went to shore and walked and swam. The water here is beautiful. By evening the bees had found us so we stayed inside. Tomorrow we will move to a new spot.

  1. So glad that you are enjoying yourselves - love the pictures. Sorry that Loretto Fest was a bust, but knowing you two you still had a good time.

    Bees: have you tried burning incense? It worked for us.

    Miss you guys!
