The Loreto Bay National Marine Park area is beautiful. We swam, snorkeled, kayaked, had lunch on a spectacular beach. There is also an option for hiking a volcano. We went with a company out of Loreto that charged $90 per person, which seemed reasonable for a day trip. I would recommend you take the time to enjoy this area.

They are very conscious of pollution. U will not see any local throw so much as a cigarette butt into the Sea. Of course the Canadian and American dollars are the heart of this area. The Sea is abundant w Sea life.

Fascinating to see the variety of marine life in this desert setting. We stayed at the time share south of Loreto and took the boat tour - well worth while

This park is made up of 5 islands off the coast of Loreto. We only visited Coronado Island and it was a wonderful wildlife, scenery and beach experience.

We got lucky in that blue whales, that we had never seen before, were just coming into the Sea of Cortez. We got to see eight or ten of them on the tour, and then some of the best snorkeling we've seen in a while. The water was cold but the tour provided wet suits. It was a great time.
