Experience Socorro’s Friendly Giant Mantas, Playful Dolphins, and 12 Species of Sharks with an Unforgettable Liveaboard Diving Holiday!

Dive into the amazing world of Socorro Island with us and experience the adventure of a lifetime. Known for its stunning, raw, and primal beauty, Socorro offers fantastic diving experiences, where super-friendly giant mantas, playful bottlenose dolphins, and 12 species of sharks await your affection. Despite being just 235 nautical miles from Cabo, Socorro feels like a remote and unvisited paradise, surrounded by the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean.

Socorro’s rich marine life includes schooling hammerheads, silver tip, silkies, and Galapagos sharks seeking attention alongside the mantas. Picture yourself swimming through vast schools of thousands of jacks, it is amazing. Socorro is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and protected national park, providing a unique and exclusive diving experience, accessible only to a limited number of permit holders.

But what truly sets Socorro apart is its giant oceanic mantas (Mobula birostris) – these majestic creatures seek interaction with divers and snorkelers, creating unforgettable moments. We have been leading dive trips to Socorro since 1978, witnessing the incredible bond between divers and mantas that has never ceased to amaze us.

With our years of experience, we offer tailored liveaboard adventures with an emphasis on your safety, guest excellence, and animal encounters. Ensuring we make the most of your Socorro holiday.
