After rounding Cabo Falso to go north to San Diego there are very few really good anchorages on the Pacific side of the Baja. Once past Cabo Falso we never saw a white cap all the way to Turtle Bay aka Bahia de Tortugas. Normally on a bash I would stop at Bahia Santa Maria or Bahia Magdalena, but when it is calm you just keep going. We pulled into Bahia Tortugas and we were here for seven days waiting for a decent window to go North.
Bahia de Tortugas is one of those places where you ask yourself why anybody lives there. Apparently there used to be a cannery set up upon the 19th century company town model. The workers threatened to go on strike to get paid and the owners closed the cannery . Jobs today revolve around the fishing industry.
