Salton Sea Facts

ENERGY

The Salton Sea’s geothermal reservoir is one of the word’s largest and hottest, with water heated to temperatures greater than 500° Fahrenheit just one mile below sea level. If harnessed, there’s enough energy to supply 1 million homes every day.

WILDLIFE

There are 914 species of birds in the US. Over 425 make a pit stop at the Salton Sea during migration season. It’s the world’s most important stop on the Pacific Flyway.

The Salton Sea is also home to an estimated 400 million tilapia.

AGRICULTURE

Farms around the Salton Sea produce over 2/3 of the US crops during the winter. It’s home to the largest producer of carrots and peppers. Agriculture generates over $1 billion each year. It’s second only to tourism in the Coachella Valley.

RECREATION

At 360 square miles, it’s the largest body of water in California. In the 1960s, more people visited the Salton Sea than Yosemite Nation Park.

The Salton Sea is Class A REC 1 water. The sea is open for all types of water craft and water recreation sports. Whether your like kayaking, fishing, outrigger canoe, standup paddle, swimming or just sunset watching, this is the place for you.
