Socorro Island Diving and Eco Expedition 2024

The remote location of Socorro Island is synonymous with big fish action, particularly manta rays, varieties of sharks (hammerheads, silkies, oceanic whitetips, silvertips, Galapagos sharks, tiger sharks and whale sharks), pods of pelagic dolphins and humpback whales. Located 291 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, this surreal destination is considered to be the sister island of Galapagos. You can find the biggest mantas in the world, which their behavior here is unique from anywhere else. These 12-16-foot giant mantas of Socorro seek out intimate interactions with divers as they dance around you. Ocean Safari will embark on the Nautilus Under Sea, the newest boat in the Nautilus fleet which recently underwent renovations, for a 9-day expedition to the beautiful Revillagigedo Archipelago, or more commonly known as Socorro Islands. Join us in June 2024 for a trip of a lifetime!
