The Best of Marine Life in the Sea of Cortez

Why Cabo is the World's Aquarium

There’s something awe-inspiring about marine life that delivers a unique and other worldly experience, especially when combined with the stunning setting of Los Cabos. The Sea of Cortez is teeming with aquatic species and reefs making it an unparalleled destination for connecting with marine treasures and discovering Baja’s raw beauty.

The Sea of Cortez

Situated between Mexico’s mainland and the Baja Peninsula is a sea of elaborate reefs and remarkable marine life. Along the Sea of Cortez is roughly 2,500 miles of striking beaches and gin-clear water allowing for pristine views of wildlife above and  below the surface. The unique geology encompassing the region including its climate harbors a rich marine ecosystem to be observed by researchers and world-travelers alike.


Marine Life

The Sea of Cortez is home to thousands of fish and mammal species, including a 20,000-year-old living coral reef at the UNESCO-protected Cabo Pulmo National Park. These waters hold 35% of the total world’s population of whales and dolphins making it one of the most important seas for studying these marine mammals. Just to name a few: sea turtles, whale sharks, sea lions, and manta rays call these waters home amongst diverse fish species and thousands of seabirds.


By Land, By Air, By Sea

Take in the natural wonders of the sea from an overhead view to an up-close encounter. Parasailing high above the sea allows you to spot marine life below and geological sights beyond. Ride along the coast on a UTV admiring the landscapes and azure waters, or cruise on a private catamaran spotting whales and dolphins then snorkel with marine life along the way.
