Gulf of California

The Gulf of California is a bay. The Gulf of California (also known as the Sea of Cortez or Sea of Corts; locally known in the Spanish language as Mar de Corts or, much less frequently, Mar Bermejo or Golfo de California) is a body of water that separates the Baja California Peninsula from the Mexican mainland. It is bordered by the states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sonora, and Sinaloa. The name "Gulf of California" predominates on most maps in English today. The name "Sea of Corts" is the one preferred by most local residents. The Gulf opened up 5.3 million years ago which allowed the Colorado River to drain into the ocean.
