GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Encounter migrating Humpback Whales. Also, expect to dive with playful bottlenose dolphins, Galapagos sharks, silkies, hammerheads, whitetip sharks and other pelagic predators at spectacular Socorro Island!
  • The abundant marine life at Socorro attracts sharks and other pelagic predators from far and wide: the most common sharks at the archipelago are Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, silvertips, scalloped hammerheads and whitetip reef sharks. Also expect to see sea lions, huge stingrays and more moray eels and octopuses than you can point a camera at.

PROGRAM

DAY 1

  • Safety Briefing, Crew Introduction, Necessary Dive Paperwork, Cabin allocation and ship orientation will take place before departing the Harbour. During the journey to our first dive site for a check dive, please take this opportunity to familiarize yourselves with the vessel and make yourself comfortable.
  • Please Note: This is a sample itinerary and nº of dives, dive sites, etc. may be subject to change due to weather conditions and other unforseeable factors

DAY 2

  • Evening arrival at San Benedicto Island The first 'check out' dive is for testing buoyancy, new dive equipment and/or cameras. This is usually at a shallow, well protected dive site. Even the shallow inshore sites at Socorro attract big animals so get ready with your wide angle lens!

DAY 3 - 9

  • The Giant Mantas at Socorro are huge and extremely social creatures. It’s hard to imagine until you dive there but these mantas actually seek out divers, returning to them dive after dive for attention. Some researchers believe that the mantas enjoy the feeling of bubbles cascading over their bodies, others think that the mantas are actually curious about the divers and enjoy their companionship. Whatever the reason is, the result is extremely close encounters with enormous animals dive after dive.
  • Socorro is one of the few places where you can see giant black mantas as well as the more conventional black and white variety. Spending an hour long dive with a six meter wide black manta that won't leave you alone is an experience you will never forget!
  • The expedition is specifically timed to arrive in the heart of the giant manta season but it is also the best time to witness the humpback whale migration when mothers are looking after their newborn calves. The calves are sometimes curious and occasionally approach lucky divers. Humpbacks are also known for their haunting whale songs and their acrobatic displays during which they often launch completely out of the water. Bring along a topside camera to catch these epic leaps and expect to see them slapping the surface with their enormous pectoral fins and tail flukes.

  • Cruise back to San Jose del Cabo. Slide show of the trip. Trivia quiz with prizes. Arrive at San Jose del Cabo in the evening. You spend one more night on the boat in San Jose del Cabo
