Join Dolphin Scuba Center aboard the M/V Valentina as we dive Socorro Islands! Known as a hot spot for sighting Giant Pacific Manta Rays, populous schools of fish, and schools of sharks - the Socorro Islands are a diving haven for creature spotting divers and adventure divers alike.
Socorro, San Benedicto and Roca Partida are three volcanic islands that make up the Revillagigedo Islands, more popularly known as Socorro. Located 250 nautical miles south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, it takes 24 hours to travel to this magnificent area. The M/V Valentina liveaboard boat trips to Socorro, San Benedicto, and Roca Partida are beautifully unique. Socorro is best known for the wonderful encounters with Giant Pacific Manta Rays, where the mantas come to the divers and are happy to stay throughout entire dives. This isn't all you will see during a liveaboard boat trip to Socorro, there are up to ten species of sharks including whale sharks, silkies, silver tips, white tips and sometimes tiger sharks! Dolphin encounters are always thrilling and we will be diving the region during an annual migration of humpback whales that will be there to breed and calve. Charismatic megafauna we tend to spot include the humpback whales, the mata rays, and whale sharks. Divers may also observe many different behaviors at cleaning stations. Bottlenose dolphin, wahoo, tuna, marlin and smaller creatures like eels, nudibranchs and octopi are just some of the creatures that call Socorro "home".
The M/V Valentina is a 130ft luxury yacht with a 20 person maximum occupancy with a crew who put safety and comfort of their divers first. Previous Dolphin Scuba Center divers have loved relaxing in between dives in the Deluxe Suites or topside on the different decks. After feasting our eyes and hearts on the sights seen below the waves, we feast onboard the Valentina on cuisine crafted by first class chefs! Each Deluxe Suite is equipped with its own air conditioning and bathroom facilites.
