Tour Details

Our Socorro season is the beginning of November through the end of May. Our trips are typically nine days, eight nights, and seven days of diving unless otherwise stated.

The Revillagigedo Islands (also Revillagigedo Archipelago) are a group of volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, known for their unique ecosystem. The islands are home to many endemic plant and animal species. Socorro island is the most diverse in flora, fauna.

The islands lie 250 miles off Baja Mexico’s southern shore. When embarking on a trip to the Socorro Islands, we plan to dive the islands of San Benedicto, Socorro, and Roca Partida.

These islands are a spectacular magnet for the largest ocean pelagic animals in the world. Animals include schooling hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, friendly bottlenose dolphins, silky sharks, Galapagos sharks, clouds of jacks and barracuda, tuna, wahoo, oceanic white tip sharks, whale sharks, and manta rays.

Manta Rays are the claim to fame for Socorro Islands. The magical dive site called “The Boiler” is a submerged sea mount and cleaning station. The mantas in the Revillagigedo Islands are friendly and enjoy the presence of humans. This is truly an exceptional place to experience the manta magic.

Humpback whales visit during the winter months of mid-February through mid-April. We often hear the singing mating males as you enjoy your dives and during this time Surface sightings are very common.

Whale sharks can be seen during November, December, and May. May is also a time when we can see giant bait balls and pods of false orcas.

This destination can only be dived by a liveaboard dive vessel. It takes approximately 26-28 hours one-way to reach the islands. The underwater topography consists of boulders, and some incredible walls. There is not much in the way of coral, as this is a cooler water destination.

Our crew aboard the “Adventure” is here to help you in any way possible to make your visit to Revillagigedo an unforgettable experience. Please let your crew know if there is anything you want or need anytime during your trip.

PLEASE NOTE: Socorro Park rules prohibit the wearing of gloves or knives and use of flashlights. It also prohibits night dives. Lights that are attached to a camera are allowed.

Dives will be made from two 20′ inflatable dingy’s, each with a driver vigilantly looking for bubbles. The inflatables have very sturdy, easy to use ladders. Upon surfacing, the inflatable will come to you. Divers will remove their BCD and the driver will lift it into the boat. Once at the ladder, divers remove their fins and climb in the boat.
