Sea of Cortez

From March 11-18, 2012, Jacque and I were in Loreto, Mexico. Loreto is in the southern Baja on the Sea of Cortez. Our primary goal was to see and photograph blue whales. We spent 10+ hours a day in a panga (small skiff) on the Sea of Cortez and saw 6 different species of whales plus lots of other wildlife. This gallery does not have any photos of humpback whales because I have other galleries with humpbacks in them. The other 5 species are all represented. During our time on the water, we circled three islands near Loreto: Coronado Island, Carmen Island, and Isla San Il Defonso.
