Bahia Tortuga, aka Turtle Bay, Is the Second Stop in Baja Ha-Ha XXVII
It’s official, folks. Here’s an update from the Grand Poobah on this year’s Baja Ha-Ha.
Bahia Tortuga, aka Turtle Bay, is the second stop in Baja Ha-Ha XXVII. So funky, so fun, such great people. Room for 1,000 boats to anchor. The arrival of the Ha-Ha fleet is the biggest day of the year for the community.
Turtle Bay is about 360 miles south of the San Diego start, which makes this the longest leg. Folks with smaller boats and those who want a shorter first leg can, and are encouraged to, start from Ensenada, making the leg about 60 miles shorter. Fito at Marina Coral and the folks at Cruiseport Marina are happy to take care of all your needs. Reservations are recommended. Starting from Ensenada in no way precludes you from enjoying the Costume Kick-Off Party in San Diego.
What’s to do in Turtle Bay? No-host beach fest the first day. World-famous Ha-Ha baseball game with local kids the second day. Potluck beach party the third day.
Banks or ATM machines in Turtle Bay? LOL; you might as well look for a paved street.
Hope to see you in Turtle Bay.
Oh yeah, Ha-Ha registration begins at noon on May 6 at www.baja-haha.com. The Ha-Ha itself starts on November 1.
If you do have that great costume party the day before, is Dona bringing back that great looking, fabulous and world class sailing bartender again? LOL
There actually is a paved street in Turtle Bay. Shocking, I know! What’s next, a Walmart? Fat chance.
What’s the first stop? We’ve done the Baja Haha 3x, on our S/V Companera, and I always thought Bahia de Tortugas was the first stop, followed by Bahia Santa Maria.
My dad was killed here. I want to get a hold of the consulate or authorities that handled this area, many, many years ago. I have questions on the killers imprisonment.
