The Sea of Cortez, Baja, Mexico, is a sea kayak Mecca, a must-do pilgrimage for kayakers, where Sonoran desert meets a rich, productive sea.  Sea kayaking offers invigorating paddling with an occasional big wind, and a high probability of seeing whale, dolphin and aerialist birds. Snorkeling is mostly rock reef, with numerous, colorful fish. The sunsets and night sky are legendary.
