Fish are cold-blooded animals, which makes them very vulnerable to the temperature of their environment. Although some species adapt better to seasonal changes, most reduce their activity in the face of sudden changes in temperature.
In general the behavior varies for each species and each place, so we cannot specify an ideal temperature, however as a general rule we will try to avoid abnormally cold temperatures in summer and too warm in winter.
Water temperature plays a determining role in fish behavior. When the water is cold, fish are lethargic and inactive, and the same is true if the water is too warm.
Water temperature plays a decisive role in fish behavior. When the water is cold, fish are lethargic and inactive, and the same is true if the water is too warm.
Our water temperature prediction algorithm is still under development. Although in most places we get a value very close to the actual seawater temperature, it may not be accurate in certain areas. Use this value with caution.

Although we spent three days in Sao Jorge with the handicap of bad weather, hiking enthusiasts can extend their stay on the island as long as they want. There are several attractive routes that can be done in the ‘sleeping dragon’ of the Azores. Apart from hiking, there are other essential visits that we will also tell you about below.
This is the hiking route par excellence of Sao Jorge. A ten-kilometer route that descends from the upper part of the island to two of its most popular belts, the Santo Cristo and dos Cubres. A journey through lush vegetation, streams and waterfalls to finally reach the coast. As this is a linear route, it is necessary to speak previously with a cab driver in the area to pick us up in the Faja dos Cubres and take us to the point of origin of the route, in a parking lot next to the road. We can ask for the contact of one at the hotel. In high season, it is possible to do the route directly and ask to be called from the bar in the Faja dos Cubres and wait there quietly for him to arrive.
Explore and enjoy on foot a hypersaline estuary typical of northwestern Mexico. This is located in the northern Gulf of California, where you can discover the majestic diversity of species that live there and enjoy the oyster products generated by a cooperative managed entirely by local women.
When the tide goes out, a world is uncovered. Witness the wonders hidden in the rocky intertidal reef that forms the tide pools, where you can enjoy a taste of the mysterious underwater life of the Sea of Cortez right on the shore of the beach!
Sail across the Sea of Cortez, swim with sea lions and go bird watching at San Jorge Island, which is part of the Gulf of California Islands Flora and Fauna Protection Area. This island is home to one of the densest colonies of sea lions in the northern Gulf of California.

Feeding: Studies on the feeding ecology of the California sea lion in Mexico are scarce. The feeding behavior of this pinniped has been analyzed based on existing knowledge of its prey. The feeding areas of the sea lion in Mexico are poorly known due to the lack of systematic information through aerial surveys, intensive tagging or telemetry studies that help determine the density of the animals at sea, their position and their origin (Garcia pers. comm.).
In the Gulf of California, the main prey in Los Islotes, Baja California Sur are benthic species, apparently members of the ichthyofauna of the Bay of La Paz (Aurioles et al. 1984; Balart et al. 1995; García 1995; García and Aurioles 1997). In the Great Islands region, feeding is mainly represented by myctophids in San Pedro Mártir, San Esteban and El Rasito; by Monterey sardine (Sardinops sagax), mackerel (Scomber japonicus), sablefish (Trichiurus lepturus) and anchoveta (Engraulis mordax) in Los Machos; by toadfish (Porichthys sp) and sablefish in Los Cantiles and El Coloradito and by sablefish and anchoveta in Granito (García com. pers.).
