The Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez is a long arm of the Pacific Ocean that shelters many species, as varied as they are astonishing: corals, whale sharks, marlin, swordfish, mania rays, sharks ... a diver's dream! Unfortunately, the growth of recreational and commercial fishing and uncontrolled tourism have endangered this ecological paradise.

In 1987, A/cyone's Sea of Cortez expedition provided the occasion to try out new silvery diving suits, tanks and updated underwater scooters. With their new equipment, the divers played games with dolphins and filmed medusas swimming lazily between two masses of water, devouring the plankton that drifted too close to their stinging cells.
