San Pedro Island, sometimes called Seal Island, is a small and rugged Mexican island in the Sea of Cortez. It is roughly 1 mile long and lies about 16 nautical miles west of San Carlos. The island is protected as a nature reserve where sea-lions, pelicans and other birds are abundant. On a calm day, the island can be reached in less than 1 hour. Often times while cruising to and from the island, dolphins play alongside the boat, manta rays can be seen flying out of the water and whales can be observed.
