Mexico

Welcome to the little Galapagos

Why Mexico? Every year we look for unique and amazing places to dive, all needing to be family-friendly and Kids Sea Camp safe. Along the way, we often run into surprising adventures and find hidden jewels of the sea. Dora Sandoval, the owner of two liveaboards, Quino El Guardian and Rocio Del Mar out of Cabo and Phoenix, operates a pair of boats that chart a path to the discovery of some of those hidden gems.

Both boats travel to the Sea of Cortez, Baja, and the Socorro “Mexico’s Galapagos” Islands in the Pacific ocean. Here’s a breakdown of the diving with these wonderful and excellent family-friendly liveaboards.

Revillagigedo – Socorro Islands: Dive and interact with the friendliest giant mantas in the world. At Socorro, these giants choose to interact with divers. They come in very close, sometimes less than 1 meter, make eye contact, and then swim along beside you, totally on their terms. It is very likely that bottle-nose dolphins will also move in close to divers during your trip. Shark sightings are also very good at Socorro Island with common sightings of silky, Galapagos, hammerhead, white tip, and silvertip sharks. Humpback whale sightings and whale sharks are possible in the season.

Days on the Rocio Del Mar: 9 to 14 days
