Night Hike

On the first day of this new year my son and I had a most fabulous experience doing a night hike at Las Catalinas.  We had no special equipment, just regular flashlights.  We were really trying to see a sloth, which I have yet to see at Las Catalinas (others have, just not me).…

Dolphin Video

OK, at long last I have retrieved some video from our dolphin encounter last month.   This is good!   Be sure to turn up the sound and listen - the dolphins' echo-location chirping was a very nice part of the experience!

Paddleboarding

On my last couple of trips to Las Catalinas our guests and I have gotten a chance to try paddleboarding.   Paddleboarding is a fast growing sport that is making converts of kayakers, surfers, and newcomers to water sports.   To do it you stand up on what looks like a large surfboard.  …

Dolphins

Yesterday Jeff Tucker, Glen Rollins, and I went on a boat trip out of Potrero (the town next to Las Catalinas).   We encountered a group of hundreds of spinner dolphins.   They are so named because they seem to enjoy leaping into the air and spinning rapidly around. It was a most amazing…
