Known worldwide as the “Mexican Galapagos” Socorro island is the type of place where anything can happen at any time. This group of volcanic islands is found 240 miles southwest of Cabo St. Lucas. We frequently encounter several species of shark including the scalloped hammerhead, silvertip, Galapagos, tiger, whitetip, and reef. During the months of November and December, whale sharks are encountered. Additionally, between February and April, we have the opportunity to see humpback whales. And if that is not enough, Socorro is one of the best places on earth to see giant Pacific manta rays and, let’s not forget, the dolphins and bigs schools of fish!
On November 16, 2016, these islands were declared by UNESCO as a Natural Human Heritage site. In November of 2017, the island was declared the largest National Marine Park in the world. It is a magical, spectacular place. Socorro Island along with San Benedicto and Roca Partida at Revillagigedo Archipelago is one of the most spectator dive destinations in the world.
