Women Sailing Baja, Sea of Cortez
A visionary voyage in one of the most biologically diverse bodies of water in the world
"The Vermillion Sea or Sea of Cortez"
"The Sea of Cortez is the world's acquarium" Jacques Cousteau
We board and start our trip from La Paz - meaning "Peace" the capital of southern Baja and very much a Mexican city. More laid back and right on the Sea of Cortez. I love to walk the promenade along the waterfront.
La Paz markets are colourful and fun too!
We sail 20 nm to Isla Espiritu Santos just north of La Paz. The island is connected by Isla Partida by a narrow isthums. The islands are protected under UNESCO as a unique biosphere
During our sailing adventure we see migratory species sush as the Humpback Whale, California Gray Whale, Dolphins, sealions and mantra rays.
Our sailing takes us across to Isla San Francisco a small very distinctive island with white sandy beaches and steep rocky ridges.
Hiking the ridges of Isla San Francisco in the Sea of Cortez, Baja
The sail is wonderful with dolphins off the bow, fishing is great, swimming and hiking are a joy to behold. Great sunsets while cooking our catch on the back deck

Each morning or sunset we move to the rhythmn of nature with a Qigong and light yoga asana.
The Sea of Cortez is unique in so many beautiful ways. The contrast of colours, the huge Baja night sky, expansive ocean vistas, startling white sandy beaches with an array of wildlife are truly amazing.
Now heading to my hacienda on the west coast of the peninsula near Todos Santos.
I smile with the memory of the Vermillion Sea. Adios - Valma
