The Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) – Mexico

Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez the “aquarium of the world.”  The narrow strip of water between Mexico’s Baja peninsula and the mainland, the Sea of Cortez remains largely a secret waiting to be discovered.

Cousteau’s moniker is accurate: here you can dive with massive, gentle whale sharks or play tag with spirited sea lion pups.

The wildlife below and above the water is just part of the draw. The scenery is breathtaking: desert mountains towering over clear-ascan- be turquoise seas. It’s the perfect backdrop for watersports, hiking, beach barbecues or simply dining al fresco and marveling at the starry sky in a land free from light pollution.

Travels Along Mexico’s Sea of Cortez

Best of all, you will see few tourists and even fewer boats – superyachts do come here, but it’s nothing compared to the busy winter cruising destinations.

When you’re done with the seclusion, head for the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, where you will find the celebrity haunts of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, both of which boast high-end hotels, shopping, excellent restaurants – a Nobu opened recently – and tequila-fueled nightlife.

A huge private airport makes it easy for visitors to jet in and out of Cabo and explore the stunning Sea of Cortez beyond. Cabo is also an ideal place to ring in the New Year, with exciting festivities and a series of dazzling fireworks exploding off the coast – best seen by boat, of course.

Loreto

Fly into Loreto International Airport and meet your yacht at Marina Puerto Escondido. You can either head to the mountains to tour the restored San Javier Mission church (one of the best preserved in Baja) or just settle in on board and get to know the crew while sipping a cocktail.

Isla Coronado

In the early morning, head to Isla Coronado, which has a hidden white sand beach. Grab your snorkel to get your first taste of the incredible marine life that the Sea of Cortez offers. Spot sea lions, dolphins and scores of species of fish, or enjoy a peaceful paddleboarding session.
