Ocean Oasis

bigImage Plunge into the wildly spectacular Sea of Cortes in an underwater world of extraordinary sealife. Swim with whales, dolphins, sharks and giant manta rays beyond belief. Then soar to the breathtaking snow-capped peaks of Baja California. Become spellbound by the pristine beauty of the nearby tropical desert. It’s an unforgettable giant screen experience, in two untamed paradises you didn’t know existed side by side . . . until now.
