Isla Cerralvo (officially Isla Jacques Cousteau since 2009) is an island at the southern end of the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez), separated from the mainland of Baja California Sur by the Cerralvo Channel. It is 29 km long, and highest peak is about 750 m. The slopes of the island ridges result in high cliffs on the east side, and many sandy beaches and points on the west side. The surrounding waters are known for big game fishing: golden grouper, marlin, sailfish, swordfish or broadbill, and others. So visitors come, not for the scenery, but for the fishing and scuba diving.

Jacques Cousteau (1910–1997) was an oceanographer from France who ran a number of underwater expeditions around the island as well as other nearby surrounding areas. The water is incredibly clear and the sea filled with exotic fish. There are three main diving spots, a small hotel or two (but otherwise uninhabited), and (adding to the list above), Mexican barracuda, huge Pacific mantas, and hammerhead sharks. Interestingly, the island is privately owned, but not including the beaches. They are part of the Islas del Golfo program, which makes it a protected natural area.

The shoreline offers great views of the Baja California mountain ranges in the distance, and the calm and warm waters are good for swimming. The island’s sparse vegetation consists of the ubiquitous cacti, as goats – left on the island for mariners’ sustenance – have eaten everything else. Formerly the island was called 'Isla Santiago' by the explorer Fortín Jiménez in 1533. In 1632 Francisco de Ortega renamed it 'Isla Cerralvo' in honour of its patron Marqués de Cerralvo, viceroy of New Spain.
