TRIP OVERVIEW

This trip offers a great combination of awesome big animals and fascinating macro life. There's always something for everyone. PLUS, it's really easy to get to - only a 4-hour drive from Phoenix, AZ!

 

 

The Sea of Cortez is home to sea lions, whale sharks, mantas and mobula rays, dolphins and huge schools of fish. Sperm whales, pilot whales, and dolphins are also commonly spotted!

 

 

 

It doesn't just stop there as the Sea of Cortez is also a perfect place to practice your macro photography skills. You will get to see nice varieties of nudibranchs, Panamic arrow crabs, Pacific seahorses, jawfish, small and big octopuses, frogfish and blennies.
