SOCORROWHERE TO DIVE : PACIFIC MEXICO



SOCORRO

Socorro Island is part of the Revillagigedos, a group of small islands off the coast of Baja
California, Mexico. Dive sites include Socorro, San Benedicto & Roca Partida. Socorro is one of
the hottest destinations on the planet and it delivers… in bucketloads. Giant Pacific Mantas,
with a wingspan of up to 9 metres, shivers of sharks - 10+ species, pods of curious dolphin,
whale sharks and even humpback whales. All from the luxury of beautiful liveaboard vessels.

The manta behaviour in this region is unique to anywhere else in the world. The giant mantas of
Socorro seem to seek out intimate interactions with divers. They communicate with you, from
locking eyes to gently swimming just overhead to be tickled by your bubbles. Some then hover
alongside or underneath a diver, where they often stay, curious and seemingly in want of a
connection.
That kind of interaction is one of the reasons our preferred dive operator, Nautilus Liveaboards
is committed to the Socorro Islands. This destination is well worth the full day motor south from
Cabo San Lucas. Volcanic in origin, these islands serve as an oasis amid the Sea of Cortez, 250
miles off the Baja Peninsula coast. The raw lava flows and active volcanoes on the island
resemble the lost world of Jurassic Park, which seems fitting as these islands call out to not only
the giant manta but a host of other big animals.

Your Socorro journey will include up to 4 dives per day - each an opportunity to encounter a
playful pod of dolphins. You may also see schooling hammerheads, galapagos, white tip reef,
silver tip, silky, tiger and oceanic white tips.
On most days you will enjoy visibility up to 100ft. When the current picks up, the ash from these
volcanic isles can rise, reducing visibility to 30ft. While not always ideal for big animal diving,
the crew will get you closer to the reef and the resident ells, octopi and Socorro lobsters.
