THE SEA OF CORTEZ... One of the youngest and most fertile seas on earth !
The Sea of Cortez is located between the Baja Peninsula and the mainland of Mexico. The Sea of Cortez is one of the youngest and most fertile seas on earth, containing over 850 species of reef fish, as well as the famous flying mobulas and an assortment of schooling pelagics and tropicals.
The Sea of Cortez is also home to many endemic species, such as the Cortez angelfish and Cortez damselfish, found nowhere else in the world. We also encounter whale sharks, hammerheads, orcas, whales and dolphins. The amazing sea of Cortez diving is practised since the beginning of the 1980s, and continues to grow in popularity.

The Revillagigedos Islands consist of 4 islands – San Benedicto Island, Socorro Island, Roca Partida and Clarion. We simply call them Socorro. They are wild, remote and unpredictable and have been called the Mexican Galapagos. This area is famous for up close and personal encounters with the Giant Pacific manta ray, which can grow to 22 feet from wingtip to wingtip. We’ve been interacting with these gentle giants since 1990s, and there is an extensive list of identification of most relationships with many of them.
Fascinating paradize... the inexhaustible memories!
