Jacques Cousteau and innumerable underwater adventurers have have described the Sea of Cortez as “The World’s Richest Sea”. This is especially true of the waters that caress the southern tip of the Baja.
The diversity in fish and marine mammals that congregate here is unmatched anywhere else in the earth’s undersea domain.
Three major ocean currents collide here to create the unique and varied life that abounds in these fruitful waters. The California current, Panamic current, and the North Equatorial Countercurrent all crash together and bring with them bountiful populations of plankton.
This staple of life attracts the whole food chain that benefits from its abundance. Experiencing the wonders of the deep is often a unique experience but diving in these plenteous waters is considered a dream come true as many locals in the area readily profess.
