One would think that the largest animal on the planet would be easy to find, but the Sea of Cortez is a big place.
Looking for wildlife is a funny thing. We go to certain corners of the world in hopes of seeing something we’ve only seen in pictures.
We watched in amazement as the feeding frenzy culminated in diving birds, the leaping of common dolphins, and the sound of whales breathing.
Upon approach we noticed one whale turned to two… then three… then eight!
In February of 2011, I was lucky enough to experience our Sea of Cortés cruise. It was, quite possibly, one of the most enjoyable weeks of my life.
