Back in Bahia de Bandaras (Puerto Vallarta)

Heading north from Tenacatita, we stopped at Chamela and decided to try to push on around Cabo Corrientes (a nasty cape about 65 miles away) the next day.  However about 2 hours out we were getting soaked from crashing waves, and Ocean Lady and us made the group decision to go back to Chamela and snorkel for a few days until the weather was better.

 

I’m glad we did because the visibility was over 25 feet and we saw an amazing amount of sea life:  moray eels, tuna, lobsters, angel fish, puffer fish, coral, brightly colored parrot fish and a ton of stuff we didn’t recognize.  So after four days of snorkeling a weather window started to open up and we went for it.

 

Three boats, Kings Way, Ocean Lady and us, all made a bid for the cape at 2pm.  We managed to sail for about 3 hours until the wind clocked around to the NW, right on our nose, so we powered through it.  At 3:30 am we cleared Cabo Corrientes in mild winds and bumpy seas.  And at 10:00 we were anchored back in La Cruz (just north of PV).  We’ll be here for a few days before hunting for more surf further north on our way to Mazatlan.
