The midriff Islands lay in the middle of the Sea of Cortez. At approximately ten-mile intervals apart, the narrow constrictions coupled with high tides create dangerous currents. We were marooned on several Islands, a total of seven days, waiting for good weather before attempting to cross.

The Sea of Cortez in which Rocky Point is located at, is a body of water that separates the Baja California Peninsula from the Mexican mainland. It is bordered by the states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sonora, and Sinaloa with a coastline of approximately 4,000 km (2,500 miles). The Gulf is one of the most diverse seas on the planet, and is home to more than 5,000 species of micro-invertebrates. Parts of the Gulf of California are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
