Approximately 80 species of whales roam the world’s oceans and seas, and about one third of them spend time in the nourishing warm waters of the Sea of Cortez, either as permanent residents like the fin and sperm whales.

Legends of Beach Volleyball and Tri-Ball Tournaments at Sonoran Sea Resort Beach October 25 & 26

By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

In addition to traditional beach volleyball, we can always count on something unique from an Outta Town Productions event, and this year Luis brings us Tri-Ball, the newest and most challenging twist on volleyball to come about in decades. One reason for the exploding growth of fast, furious and fun Tri-Ball across the nation is that it is a perfect tournament game. It involves an addicting combination of three teams of co-ed 3’s simultaneously playing one ball over three nets attached to one center pole on a circular court. Did we say fast, furious, fun? Just imagine! Luis discovered Tri-Ball back in 2009, loved the fast play and saw immediately how it equalized the height advantage of traditional volleyball…

How Tides Work

By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

Now that we’re two supermoons into the three in a row scheduled for this year, the third scheduled to happen on September 9th, it’s appropriate to talk about the effect our moon has on tides around the planet and how that works.

What’s interesting is that there are still conflicting beliefs about whether the moon actually affects our tides, especially when you consider that, in order to deny the effect, one has to deny the existence of laws of gravity, gravitational pull and other major scientific evidence explaining everything from planet rotation to orbital patterns that have been recorded for centuries as well as many other proven scientific theories…

By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

In Part V of our impact study we discussed ways a destination like ours could duplicate the very effective methods cruise lines have been using for forty years that have led to their continuous growth. That is to ask questions and listen to the answers, then give them more than they asked for.

Before we delve too deeply into the marketing science of garnering the valuable information that reveals what would make a cruise passenger a potential vacationer to our little slice of paradise by the sea, let’s take a macro look at the complex considerations of cruise operators just to select ports of call and itineraries.
