Boat Description

Socorro Vortex is a luxury liveaboard which has a combination of twin cabins and king-size suites. All have ensuites, AC and storage. The main living room is sleek and stylish and the dining room has diner-style seating along with a bar. The outer seating areas have spectacular views over the Pacific and are an ideal spot to enjoy the breeze. The sundeck has loungers and chairs so you can enjoy the Mexican sunshine or even watch the stars from the jacuzzi while sipping a delicious cocktail. The Socorro Vortex is a nitrox only vessel and is rebreather optimized, as well having a spacious dive deck. The Mexican Pacific has some of the most dramatic diving in the world and Guadalupe and the Socorro Islands are a great representation of this. In Guadalupe from August - October, you can cage dive with great white sharks. Off the Socorro Islands you can see giant oceanic manta rays, 10 varieties of shark (including whale sharks and schooling hammerheads), dolphins and even migrating humpback whales.
