2017 Sea of Cortez Trip

Photos in this gallery were taken on a trip organized by Cloud Ridge Naturalists. We landed in Loreto, Mexico and then traveled across Baja California to the Pacific side, where we viewed and touched gray whales

The rest of the trip was in the Sea of Cortez, or Gulf of California, Mexico, on the Westward, a powered boat originally built in the 1920s. It is delightfully refurbished but maintains its character and charm. It normally travels with a crew of 4, although there was an extra crew member to spoil us on this trip.

The photos are presented in the order in which they were taken. I’ve done my best to accurately identify the species involved. If you see any errors, please contact me.

Thanks for looking at my photos.
