Bahia de los Angeles is located in the central western part of the Gulf of California, in the region known as the Great Islands (las Grandes Islas), 560 miles south of the city of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. Geographically it is located between parallels 28.0625 and 29.6917, North latitude and between meridians 112.7891 and 114.1568 West longitude (decimal degrees). It is a natural jewel that is characterized by a group of 32 Islands, islets and archipelagos, including the Islands: Guardian Angel, Guadalupe, La Ventana, Coronado, and Gemelos, as well as the Archipelago of San Lorenzo. All of these are a part of an underwater topographic landscape with depths between 0-1, 400 m within the internal channels, and 0-600 m on the eastern fringe, where upwelling can be very strong in an ecologically rich and productive area, where commercial species abound.

The COASTKEEPER program of Bahia de los Angeles has a team of three people: Christian Portillo, Alejandro Castillo and Jesús García, who coordinate, link and implement actions on site. It also works jointly with a team of legal advisors of the organization known as Defensa Ambiental del Noroeste (Northwest Environmental Defense) and a diversity of partners for the protection of the site.
