The 50-foot-long boat, christened El Triunfo de la Cruz, gave Ugarte and the Loreto mission many years of reliable service. On its maiden voyage in May 1721, Padre Ugarte reconnoitered the upper gulf to encounter the Colorado River but found no passage to open ocean. Ugarte’s journey confirmed the results of the Francisco de Ulloa expedition of 1538: Baja was indeed a peninsula. Between 1719 and 1721 four new missions were created: Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe and La Purísima Concepción de Cadegomó in central Baja among the Cochimí, and Nuestra Señora de Dolores Apaté near the coast north of La Paz Bay and Nuestra Señora del Pilar Airapí at the La Paz colony, these two missions targeting the Guaycura and Pericú for congregation and conversion.
It remained a daunting task to pacify the antagonistic Guaycura and Pericú bands, reluctant neophytes who hated the Spaniards and never ceased fighting among themselves. Despite these chronic conflicts, Padre Ugarte remained committed to evangelizing southern Baja California. In 1721 Guaycura at the exhausted Liguí mission south of Loreto were relocated by Padre Guillén farther down the coast to Nuestra Señora de los Dolores Apaté, Liguí and Dolores Apaté being coastal missions soon destined for abandonment.
