“What truly amazes me about the Gulf of California is how alive it is. Its islands— populated not by people but by seabirds, sea lions, and lovely, life-asserting desert plants—give an impression of wilderness far beyond the proximity of the U.S. and mainland Mexico. Despite serious over fishing for some species, the Gulf is largely a safe haven. For us it is a safe haven too, an easily accessed place to marvel at wild abundance, wide horizons, and intense desert beauty.”

Dr. Carl Safina, Founder, Blue Ocean Institute

“The Sea of Cortez and its islands have been called a natural laboratory for the investigation of speciation. Moreover, almost all major oceanographic processes occurring in the planets oceans are present in the property, giving it extraordinary importance for study.”


“In the offshore Baja waters and the Sea of Cortez, you can, in the space of a few days, see more whale species than anywhere else in the world. Blues, humpbacks, fins, minkes, Bryde’s, grays, and orcas are frequently sighted, as are bottlenose and common dolphins.”
