Scenery!

Awesome scenery and wildlife. Neat to see the rays jumping out of the water and the sunsets were so spectacular they looked fake!

Beautiful marine life! You can snorkel, paddle board, kayak, or take day trips by boat to islands surrounding the bays.

Loreto Bay Marine Park is the heart of Loreto. The abundance and variety of marine life is the essence of the Sea of Cortez. Any season is the right season. In winter see the largest mammal on earth, the Blue Whale as well as Fin Whales, Humpbacks and an occasional Orca. In summer bask in the warmth of the summer... More

We were staying at Hotel Oasis which is on the coast to the National Marine Park. We enjoyed fitness walking along the coast with sunrise. Then in the evening with a stroll back to our hotel. Very well kept up and clean.

We live here, so we love the park, every creature under the sea and water so clear you can see everything without diving, just snorkeling...however, free diving is the best!

The Marine park is beautiful. There are many, many boats available to charter. Scuba and snorkeling or just a boat ride.
