We will be traveling to the Baja California Peninsula. “Baja” is the fourth longest peninsula on the planet, covering a distance of 806 miles long (1,300 km). The peninsula of “Baja” is separated from mainland Mexico by the Gulf of California (aka the Sea of Cortez). This body of water is truly one of the most unique environments on the planet. The town of Bahia de los Angeles is located on the Gulf coast of the Baja California Peninsula. The bay itself is in the region known as the Midriff Islands. The majority of our daily activities take place within the 16 islands surrounding the bay. These islands are protected by the Federal Government of Mexico.
Bahia de los Angeles is approximately 400 miles from the San Diego border. It is a very small fishing town with a population of approximately 800 inhabitants. The town is famous among
scientists, educators and fishermen because of the spectacular bay and the incredible diversity of life, which provides great opportunities to learn about the natural environment.
