Boat Description

Quino el Guardian operates in the Mexican Pacific ocean. Catering for 16 guests in 4 quad cabins, each bunk has a light, power and privacy curtain and is perfect for groups of friends. Built as a research vessel, she has 4 public bathrooms throughout the ship. The galley is large enough for all and has a projector for presentations whereas the salon has sofas, TV, library and computer table. The dive deck is spacious with a large camera table and easy access to the inflatable diving vessels. The sundeck is equipped with loungers, ideal for sunbathing, enjoying the views and breeze or stargazing of an evening. Quino el Guardian sails to the Socorro Islands in the Sea of Cortez. This untouched diving paradise has pelagic encounters that need to be seen to be believed. Pristine, deep walls form the backdrop for encounters with friendly manta rays, pods of dolphins, whale shark and humpback whales with their calves, diving in the Socorro Islands is not something you'll forget in a hurry!
