Mexico’s Sea Of Cortez—located between the Baja Peninsula and the Pacific mainland—is one of the most biologically diverse seas on earth. It boasts more than 900 varieties of fish and upwards of 2,000 marine invertebrates, plus a few paddlers here and there. Amid the whale sharks, dolphins, invertebrates and other species who call the Sea of Cortez home, a paddling vacation here just might make you never want to go back to your own home. And if that’s the case, no worries! As you can see, there’s plenty of space here for newcomers.
