Description

Socorro a group of four, volcanic, islands located in the Pacific ocean off the coast of the southern tip of Baja California

This is a paradise for many large Pelagic species, including Hammerheads, Silky, Silver Tip and White Tips, Humpback Whales and Dolphins. It is also known for the many large Manta Rays which inhabit this area.

Socorro diving area is not a coral reef, but once you spot the spectacular marine wildlife you won't be able to focus on much else anyway! With such incredible dive encounters with marine megafauna in a remote and rich underwater environment, it is obvious why Socorro and its neighbors are sometimes called 'The Galapagos of Mexico'.
