Socorro, Roca Partida, San Benedicto (November – May) – 8 Night Trips

“We are extremely excited to offer our guests a top destination to add to their dive log that offers giant pacific manta rays, large schools of fish and sharks” says CEO Wayne Brown.

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. Our liveaboard boat trips to Socorro, San Benedicto, and Roca Partida and beautifully unique. 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.  This isn’t all you will see during a liveaboard boat trip to Socorro, there are up to ten species of sharks including whale sharks, silkies, silver tips, white tips and sometimes tiger sharks. 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.  Whale sharks are seen mainly in November/December and April/May. Divers may also observe many different behaviors of manta cleaning stations, Bottlenose dolphin, wahoo, tuna, marlin and smaller creatures like eels, nudibranchs and octopi.
