Before you go…
The Sea of Cortez was formed 3-4 million years ago as a result of continental drift and is a spreading zone-burst open at the seams forming deep basins that are filled with nutrient-rich water…which rises to the surface during upwelling events/ cold water season. Upwelling brings productivity and biological diversity. Deep water in close proximity to shore gives accessibility to many pelagic species.
That’s the magical aspect of a Safari, every day is different… as in Los Cabos!
