SOCORRO 

30/12/21 to 7/1/2022

PELAGIC MANTA RAYS

THE ITINERARY

Join us on an Offshore Expedition to the remote Revillagigedos, 250km west of Mexico, also known as Socorro. Socorro island and its surrounding waters are increasingly famous for big fish action, manta rays, dolphins, thousands of sharks and even humpback whales. Hammerheads, silkies, oceanic whitetips, silvertips, Galapagos sharks, tiger sharks and even whale sharks can be seen here.

THE DIVING

The best known of the Revillagigedos of Mexico is Socorro Island, so much so that the group of islands is often referred to collectively as 'Socorro'. We will be diving 3 to 4 times a day, on all hot spots of Socorro, such as Roca Partida and the Boiler. Interactions with dolphins and sharks are guaranteed, as well as pelagic manta rays of up to 6m which get cleaned by large orange Damsel fish, a worldwide qunieu sight. The winter months are a good time for whalesharks as well as schools of hammerheads. And there is always the chance to see humpback whales. 

Check out the blog from last years expedition.

In this video group leader Simon talks about our 2018/19 expedition. Mind that it was a winter trip, this time we are going in late spring so warmer weather and water and generally calmer conditions.

THE BOAT

With a maximum of 18 guests the Undersea has been recently added to the Nautilus Fleet after serving for many years as the main boat exploring Cocos Island. Its been completely overhauled and extended to Nautilus Standards in order to make it a perfect boat for the Socorro Islands. Being set up for a smaller group allows smaller groups and less people in the water. The Nautilus hospitality and management adds the final touches to this amazing experience.
