Join Rick Strom on a true exploration of the Socorro Islands!
The Revillagigedos Islands are a group of four volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean known for their unique ecosystem. The islands are home to many endemic plant and animal species and are sometimes called Mexico’s “little Galapagos”. Socorro island is the most diverse in flora, fauna, and topography. Approximately 9 miles wide, Socorro island and it’s surrounding waters have become synonymous with liveaboard diving cruises and are a spectacular magnet for the largest ocean pelagic animals in the world. Schooling hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, dolphins, silky sharks, Galapagos sharks, clouds of jacks and barracuda, tuna, wahoo, oceanic white tip sharks, shale sharks, and mantas. Mantas are the claim to fame for Socorro Islands. The magical dive site called “the Boiler” is a submerged sea mount and cleaning station. More than a half dozen Mantas frequent this pinnacle regularly. Humpback whales visit during the winter months of January through April. We are going during humpback whale season.
Divers will live-aboard the Rocio Del Mar, a full service, 10 state room vessel, well equipped to make the 10 day, 9 night journey throughout the Socorro Islands.
