FOLLOW THE STEPS OF STEINBECK … SAIL THROUGH THE SECLUDED BAJA DESERT … SAVOR THE PRISTINE BEAUTY OF THE SEA OF CORTEZ
Sheltered by the 900-Mile Baja Peninsula, Mexico’s Sea of Cortez is a glorious natural backdrop of sea and sky with dozens of protected coves, tranquil desert islands, dramatic red volcanic cliffs, lush mangroves, secluded white sandy beaches and pristine sapphire waters.
Pronounced “the world’s aquarium” by Jacques Cousteau, the Sea of Cortez provides fertile ground for the ecotourist. Cavorting colonies of sea lions, majestic migratory whales, playful manta rays, and curious dolphin all contribute to the unique Baja experience. Snorkel over pristine reefs, catch a world-class marlin, kayak through marine caves or simply relax on deck and take in the beauty of your surroundings.
The mosaic of red rock formations, pristine desert, mangroves, and land locked lagoons will entice anyone to explore some of the protected wildlife refuges of the tranquil and virtually uninhabited islands in the Sea of Cortez. Go bird watching, hiking, rock climbing, beach combing or exploring caves once used by local Indians amongst this land of unique flora and fauna.
