Join us on board the Searcher for an unforgettable wildlife cruise as we explore the enchanting and abundant waters of the Sea of Cortez.

The Sea of Cortez has an incredible level of biodiversity with over 30 species of marine mammal seen here such as California sealion, common bottlenose dolphin, humpback, sperm and even blue whale. Approximately 900 species of fish have been recorded, including leaping mobula rays and the largest fish in the world, the whale shark. Osprey, brown pelican and blue-footed booby are just some of the birds that can be encountered as well.

We will navigate the enchanting and calm waters of the Sea of Cortez on board the Searcher. Accommodating just 24 passengers, it is one of the smaller boats to sail here, making it perfect for watching wildlife as it is nimble enough to keep up with movement of the animals, but it is also small enough to access secluded coves and islets. Led by Wildlife Worldwide Founder, Chris Breen, this tour spends seven nights on board, exploring the Sea of Cortez. There are also opportunities for snorkelling and nature walks on some of the scenic islands.
