Sea of Cortez - places to see

Hi folks,

Wondering if we have any experts on the Sea of Cortez that can reccommend places to see. Particular points of interest are secluded white sand beaches, interesting and beautiful formations, places to snorkel and dive. Marina's worth stopping at, etc... I'll take any general reccommendations also.

We plan to charter with Moorings in the late May or early June timeframe.

Thanks in advance!
Tom

It starrdles the Pacific ocean and the Sea of Cortez. So it's in the neck of the woods!!

We charted out of La Paz last year. All the islands to the north of La Paz are worth a visit if you want secluded anchorages.

We liked Isla San Francisco in particular.

Hi Sneaman!

No sorry, never been. The handle doesn't have a very exotic backstory. I just drink too much Redbull.

cheers!

Well, I'm sure that the boat you'll charter. Unless you are skippering her yourself? That I'm sure you'll have plenty of cool drinks onboard her during your trip?
