From cage diving with great white sharks in Guadalupe to swimming with manta rays at Socorro Island, Mexico offers liveaboard adventures off its west coast that are perfect for pelagic lovers.
Mexico’s liveaboards focus mainly on the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. In particular, Guadalupe with its great white sharks and the Revillagigedo Archipelago (a.k.a. Socorro) which is famous for its manta rays and humpback whales are popular destinations. Both are a day’s sail from shore in the Pacific. During the off season, liveaboards traverse the Sea of Cortez in search of whales, sea lions and hammerhead sharks. These are only accessible by dive safari due to their distance from the mainland. Typically, liveaboards in Mexico last 4 to 10 days, and diving is possible year-round. These factors may vary depending on your intended destination in Mexico.
