BAY OF LORETO MARINE PARK
Born from the diligent efforts of the Loreto community, The Bay of Loreto National Park was created by a Presidential Decree and approved by the Mexican Federal Congress on July 19, 1996. The Marine Park covers 2,065 square kilometers in the Sea of Cortez ranging from Isla Coronado in the north to Isla Catalana in the south. On July 14, 2005, the Park was inscribed to the United Nation’s list of protected World Heritage Sites. With over 800 species of marine life inhabiting the Sea of Cortez and many of them currently endangered, the need for protection of these delicate ecosystems is great. Loreto invites you to come outside and play. Less crowded than some resort towns, it’s a great base for snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, sport fishing or just relaxing on the beach. Annual whale migrations draw massive crowds in springtime.
The Sea of Cortez, also known as the ‘Gulf of California’, is amazing in so many different ways. From the abundance of sea life to the clarity of the waters, the Sea of Cortez is host to amazing deep sea fishing, scuba diving, beautiful views, and more. Legendary diver Jacques Cousteau once described the Sea of Cortez as the “world’s aquarium” and the “Galapagos of North America”.
