“Every divers bucket list.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

2nd time to Socorro, this time on the live aboard Rocio Del Mar. The boat is spacious & accommodating. The crew all know there part to make your stay & diving spot on! Poncho the Chef creates dishes worth every bite. 3 dive master to create 3 different groups placing divers into the water in 15-20 min apart. All skilled & loving their part to make your dives safe & fun.
The Socorro Islands are a very special, remote oasis and refuge for Giant Pacific Manta Rays. The amazing close and personal encounters, the friendly, social nature of these animals, and the intentional and intimate interaction between diver and manta, initiated by the mantas themselves. Lets not forget Dolphins & 5-6 diff Sharks, tons of fish.
Diving with these large, graceful creatures is one of life's greatest wildlife encounters, and should be on every diver's bucket list.
Rocka Pita Special Place & the other dive sites.
