New information: Topolobampo - Topolobampo is quickly becoming a new “off the beaten path” cruising destination for boaters traveling along the eastern shore of the Sea of Cortez. While Topolobampo is not included in our cruising guide as we have yet to visit this location with our sounding gear, many people have been contacting us for further information on this destination. A new marina has opened in Topolobampo named Club de Yates Palmira Topolobampo, or Marina Palmira Topolobampo. With this new and secure marina to leave your boat in, travel to the world renowned Barranca de Cobre, or Copper Canyon, has been made far more accessible to boaters. We are currently working with the marina manager to put together a chartlet for those who wish to visit Topolobampo. We will post the chartlet on the updates page once it is completed. For further information and to contact Marina Palmira Topolobampo:
