  1. I went for a week on the Socorro trip with a group of friends and it was just amazing! The crew if seriously great, they are professionals, they know what they are up to and they seems to have been doing this and diving there for a long while as they guide you with so much confidence. Our stay on board was comfortable, I have to say we spent the clearest of our time outside on the decks, the weather was totally on our side to why not enjoy it :)

    Diving was great! I like that you make the comparison saying it’s the little Galpagos of Mexico as I though so too. I mean, i have not been lucky enough, nor am I experience enough to go to the Galapagos Islands but I’ve heard of it and indeed the Socorro felt special and diverse just like people tell me of the Galapagos!

    Anyways, in behalf of me and my 3 dive buddies, we recommend the Rocio del Mar all the way! looking forward coming back next year ourselves!
