The Sea of Cortez

Coastline desert hike!
Coastline desert hike!
Once sailed by pirates and explored by Spanish and English conquistadors, the Sea of Cortez offers a rich and fascinating history. Regarded and debated by some as the youngest sea in the world, the Sea of Cortez is arguably one of the world’s richest natural aquariums. Filled with marine life, rock and coral reefs, and sunken treasure ships, the sea was a playground for Jacques Cousteau and his underwater team. Sailing its turquoise waters with binoculars in hand, I couldn’t help but imagine seeing tall masted ships flying the skull and crossbones rounding the islands.

"The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever." -Jacques Cousteau
