Stand Up Paddle on the Sea of Cortez
– a magical experience –
It is early morning, totally calm, and you’re a few hundred meters from shore on a Stand up Paddleboard.
In the dim pre-dawn light you can just make out the shapes of your friends and family nearby on their own boards and the tranquil serenity is only disturbed by the distant singing of humpback whales and the occasional clap of a mobela ray as it leaps from the water. As the dull red glow on the horizon intensifies the hues change through the spectrum from shades of purple orange and yellow until suddenly the sun bursts forth in a blaze of glorious light. Looking back to shore the spectacular backdrop of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains is now visible, bathed in glorious dawn colors. Now it is bright enough for you to see the majestic shapes of the whales as they cruise past and witness the flight of the leaping rays. As you head back to shallower waters and cruise along the coastline myriad varieties of fish are visible in the crystal clear waters.
