Join the Women Divers Hall of Fame traveling to Socorro Island - one of those rare places on earth where Big Animals rule! Socorro has a large concentration of friendly mantas and dolphins, schooling hammerheads, silky sharks, whale sharks and we will be diving during humpback whale season! You will see whales on the surface, hear them in the water and possibly see them during a dive. This is one Blue Green expedition trip you don’t want to miss! We will be traveling aboard the luxury Nautilus Gallant Lady live aboard dive boat. You can see mantas in many places around the world, but nowhere else boasts a population of giant mantas that literally seek out interaction with divers and snorkelers. The behavior these giant mantas exhibit is almost inexplicable.
These gentle giants with a wingspan up to 20 feet consistently approach divers for intimate eye-to-eye encounters. If you are able to be calm and still in the water, you are almost sure to experience what we call “manta love.” While mantas are the reason many divers voyage out to Socorro, there are lots of other animals to see such as schooling hammerheads and silky sharks, plus 8 other species of sharks, bottlenose dolphins that consistently hang out with divers at certain dive sites, large schools of pelagic ﬁsh, and humpback whales!
