Volcán Coronado (right horizon), a small stratovolcano at the northern tip of Coronado Island, rises behind a group of kayakers across the Canal de los Ballenas (Channel of the Whales). The roughly 440-m-high volcano forms a 2-km-wide peninsula and contains a 300 x 160 m wide crater. The elongated NNW-SSE-trending island lies 3 km off the eastern coast of Baja California.
