The Isla de San Jorge is a true natural wonder ready to be explored. Grab your snorkeling gear and board a boat as you answer adventure’s call to explore the rocky paradise that is Isla de San Jorge.

A short distance from the Sonoran coast of the Sea of Cortez, a series of rock formations rise from the water as if a part of the desert would have preferred to live in the sea. Marvel at the spectacular beauty that is this tiny paradise, home to a variety of seabirds, bats, and aquatic animals that live on the rocks.

The abundant richness of the warm waters protected by the Gulf of California makes it possible for sea lions to rest and relax in the area. Dare to observe these spectacular ocean mammals from a safe distance, always respecting their space.
