What an amazing adventure! Marc was a knowledgeable and encouraging captain with an all women crew. We learned so much, sailed quite a bit and had some fun as well! It was a challenging week but very satisfactory. What Nautilus offers in terms of the books provided and the skills that are taught is very helpful in learning to sail... More

Had a great week live aboard with Nautilus Sailing. The sailing instruction was great. The sailing instruction was great. Tim and Marc did a great job and were very patient in their approach. Cooking aboard each night was an extra bonus.

Spent the week becoming certified with Nautilus Sailing. Lyle (our teacher) was fantastic and patient. Spent nights anchored in deserted coves, hiked, snorkeled with sea lions at Los Islotes, watched beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Saw dolphins, manta rays, pelicans and more. A great working vacation with some relaxation thrown in! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get certified for... More

Having just returned from two weeks of bare boating on the Sea of Cortez, it's hard to choose what I liked best! We headed north from La Paz up to Isla San Francisco and anchored each night in different remote harbors. Often we were the only boat there, sometimes joined by two or three other boats. Daily adventures included snorkeling... More

Land's End is where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet in the azure waters at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Here is where you will see the famous rock formations of Cabo San Lucas, Los Arcos Rock, the sea lion colony at the Los Frailes rock islets, and the Arch of Poseidon as well as Lover's... More

if you like nature and/or sea life you HAVE to go, I have been going for 10 years every summer. The water from Jan-Apr is cold, but you can see the whales in Jan/Feb.

I've been looking for information on travel to the Sea of Cortez and am astonished that there is so little available. Granted, it's been a long time since I was there; it's been nearly twenty years since some friends and I drove from northern California to Cabo. But I am haunted by the beautiful images of the huge, cactus-covered mountains... More

I have been going on many trips to the Enchanted Islands in the sea of cortez. I have witnessed nothing but lots of wildlife, great fishing, and pristine waters. There were no other fishing boats in my site and we caught several large groupers. I would make the trip again in a heartbeat...
