I need to know more about Isla San Pedro Martir. This is not the nearby Isla San Pedro. How far is it from San Carlos? What are the latitude and longitude? Have any of you fished there? I understand that an area on the east side of the island is closed to all fishing. I know generally where it is, but I need more specific data. Thanks.

For lat/lon I find this tool to be very helpful:

 For distance calculation go here:

Thanks again. Using Dave's suggestions, I found the distance from San Carlos to Isla San Pedro Martir to be about 83 miles from San Carlos.  Supposedly this is the most isolated island in The Sea Of Cortez.

I have fished there several times within the last several years.  The north, north east side is closed to fishing.  I suggest getting a map of the closed area from Semernap.  We caught calicos, gulf grouper, cabrilla and yellowtail there on one trip.  The next time, the yellowtail were missing.  The fishing is what you would expect from a wilderness area.
Guide books show an anchorage there on the south side, but I wouldn't recommend it.  We went to sleep there in calm conditions and woke up to strong NE winds blowing us close to a rocky shore with hundreds of sea lions howling and barking at us.  We sat up the rest of the night, nervously ready to fire the engines up if the anchor slipped. 
There is a good anchorage at Dog Bay on the SE corner of Isla Tiburon, 17 miles away. 
Also worth a visit is Isla San Estaban, one of the most beautiful islands in the Sea of Cortez and offering similar fishing.
