Sea of Cortez

As is true for most remote locations, experiencing Mexico's Sea of Cortez is best from the deck of a luxury live-aboard. You'll be diving all day, instead of spending most of it getting to and from divesites. (You'll be pampered by the crew, too!)

Being at sea for a week or more means you'd better check and double-check your photo gear (and carry spares if you can.) These images were taken with a Nikon D200 DSLR and dual Sea&Sea strobes.

Cortez wonderland

The Sea of Cortez is an extraordinarily diverse marine environment. The northern end is cooler water, abounding with kelp forests and invertebrate life. The southern end is warmer, thick with coral reefs and tropical fish. The mid section is an amazing mix of coral, kelp, invertebrates, schools of jacks, hammerheads, puffer fish, angelfish, sea lions, and more.
