Ever take a boat to the middle of no where?


Over Easter break my 14 and 16 yo's and I drove 12 hrs from SoCal to Bahia de Los Angeles and then went 50 miles out on a super panga to Puerto Refugio and camped out.

Puerto Refugio is the big bay on the Northern tip of Isla Angel de la Guarda, and is flanked by three smaller islands - Isla Mejia, Isla Division, and Isla Granito.

The famous Sail Rock guards the entrance to the beautiful bay.

We heard all about the rattle snakes that are only known to the island, but after worrying about them a good bit, we didn't even see one.

What's an Eastern break? I didn't think there was surfing on the SOC. :?:

Cool video, JZ! I remember Guillermo telling me about all the rattlesnakes on the island and that when he overnights out there, that he sleeps on the boat!

I actually had to argue with him a bit to take us to the cove we camped in. I put my foot down and glad I did, as all of this was shot in 24hrs and a bunch of it from where we camped.

He did sleep on the boat, across the bay off one of the small islands. In the AM my MX friend climbed the hill and looked over to where he was supposed to be anchored and the boat was gone. I was mildly worried, but figured he was out fishing early.

It took about an hour, but we got a hold of him on the radio. I did make a mental note of how much water we had because my kid told me when we were driving out about a story he read of 2 guys walking around the island for a week plus before one of them was rescued.

Great video as usual. Thanks for sharing. Lucky kids to get that kind of exposure to Baja. That will last them a lifetime.

A campsite to die for.........I've seen pictures of the place But this!!............You do have this wired!......Great stuff!

Anyone can catch fish in a boat but only \"El Pescador Grande\" can get them from the beach.

I hope when my time comes the old man will let me bring my rod and the water will be warm and clear.

I remember that. It was 2 or 3 American guys and a panga operator from one of the mothership operations. Crazy story...one of the guys died. If I remember right, the wind came up and they had no radios or safety equipment. I think they made it up to the north part of the island where there was a small military outpost...

We just stayed out on the island one night. We rode the other days of the trip. But man did we get lucky with the weather. Flat as a pancake the first day.

In July we are going to ride the entire Seven Sisters. I'm going to try some different stuff for that ride. I've been watching a bunch of videos of the best mount places for GoPros and I'm going to mix some of those shots in. Also planning to get a smaller drone and do more closeup, moving shots on difficult parts of the trails.

The price of this tech has come down so much it's really affordable now.

What a great video! Thank you so much for sharing, that was just incredible to watch.

How sad that the American guys died, I see cacti, surely they could have eaten them???

The seven sisters is one of my favorite rides after doing it this year. I want to go back and do it over several day and camp as we go, it's a very special area...
