A Glimpse of Sea Life
Unique oceanographic and geologic features help make the Sea of Cortez one of the most diverse and prolific seas in the world, where thousands of tropical and temperate animal species are well represented. There is a wide variety of habitats, ranging from coral reefs and mangrove lagoons to shallow basins and numerous types of shoreline. Here you will find fish and other marine animals in abundance -- invertebrates, rays, sailfish, marlin, tuna, sea turtles, sea lions and whales. Dolphins commonly play at the bow of the boat while we are under sail.
One of the keys to appreciating and understanding any natural
system is the knowledge of the organisms that are present and the ecological
roles they play. It is ExploraMar's hope that introducing young people to the
Sea of Cortez will inspire a discipline of conservation, and a love of the ocean
and the life it supports.
