Up close interaction with giant mantas and dolphins happens consistently year-round at Socorro. The unique interaction with giant mantas is what Socorro is famous for! The shark diving is not bad either with 10 different species of sharks resident in the Islas. The water temperatures start chilling down to 73 – 74 degrees in January, which is when 1200 humpback whales from Alaska migrate down to Socorro for mating. You will see loads of whales on the surface and you will hear them singing underwater. You may even hear them singing through the hull of the ship at night. Most incredible of all is the opportunity to snorkel with these magnificent animals.

The Nautilus Explorer is a spacious, luxury dive vessel. Cabins are comfortable and well- appointed with en suite facilities and individual climate control. Most dives are conducted from 3 dive skiffs. Explorer can accommodate numerous divers, though you will never feel crowded. The large dive deck gives plenty of room for camera equipment, dive gear, and rebreathers alike. At the end of a spectacular day of diving relax and reminisce about your day!
