The Sea of Cortez is on the West coast of Mexico, just below California. It was created millions of years ago by rifting tectonic plates. The Colorado provides nutrients that attract many whales who annually migrate from the North. We were just in time (March)to see some of these amazing creatures before they headed back to Alaska. Pictures don’t really do justice to the impact these animals have – all the sounds, the waves, the sheer thrill of being so close. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate.
These pictures I took during an excursion on a small boat carrying 10 people. Humpback whales having fun.
