• La Bufadora in Punta Banda
    Ensenada Mexico


  • Ensenada, Punta Banda,


    La Bufadora is a marine blowhole, The spout of sea water is the result of air, trapped in a sea cave, exploding upwards. Air is forced into the cave by wave action and is released when the water recedes. This interaction not only creates the spout, but a thunderous noise as well. The phenomena repeats every minute or so with its volume depending on the strength of the waves.
    La Bufadora is one of the largest blowholes in North America, often shooting upwards more than 30 metres (100 ft) above sea level.
