Socorro, San Benedicto and Roca Partida are three volcanic islands that make up the Revillagigedo Islands. These islands are most commonly known as Socorro. Located 250 nautical miles south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. It takes 24 hours to travel to this magnificent area.
Socorro is best known for the wonderful encounters with giant pacific manta rays, where the mantas come to the divers and are happy to stay throughout entire dives. There are up to nine species of sharks possible during our trip including oceanic whitetips, tiger, whitetip reef, silvertip, dusky, thresher, hammerheads, silkies, and Galápagos. Dolphin encounters are always thrilling, and from January through March, these islands are home to a migratory population of humpback whales that come to breed and have calves. Divers may also observe many different behaviors of manta cleaning stations, Bottlenose dolphin, wahoo, tuna, marlin and smaller creatures like eels, nudibranchs and octopi. Our Socorro liveaboard boat trip will offer wild and unpredictable diving at its best!
