A valid passport book or card is required to travel to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. Passport Info Here
Puerto Peñasco is located on the Sea of Cortez (our nearest ocean experience) which has one of the best intertidal expanses in the world! Our destination is a little over 60 miles from the US border which makes the seaside city an easy 3 1/2 hours drive from Phoenix.
This introduction to Marine Biology, designed for the non-major, will take you to the Sea of Cortez (our nearest ocean experience), which has one of the best intertidal expanses in the world! At low tide, as much as 300 feet of what was once covered by the sea is exposed. Students will study the area between the tides and collect both plant and animal specimens, which will be studied under the microscope. Students will take part in an ongoing scientific survey of intertidal organisms in local habitats.
Depending on the timing of the best tides, the dates of the program may vary from year to year.
