Faster to Socorro

“One fast, floating palace” is how the operator describes the Socorro Vortex, a repurposed Canadian Coast Guard vessel. The new liveaboard has been sailing to eastern Pacific big-animal hotspot Revillagigedo, aka the Socorro archipelago, since April. 

Pelagic Fleet and Peter Hughes claim to have “redefined luxury diving in remote locations” with what they say is now the fastest and most exclusive liveaboard for accessing Socorro and Guadalupe.

A complimentary premium bar, helipad, free high-speed wi-fi, Jacuzzi and a 22sq m master suite says it all, say the operators, who are catering for just 14 guests on a 43m boat.

They have also launched the Self Propelled Ocean Cage or SPOC (pictured), previously used only for scientific purposes, for hourly charter when diving with great white sharks in Guadalupe.

Pelagic Fleet is based in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Nine-day trips to Socorro start from US $6000pp (two sharing) and a five-day great white trip to Guadalupe from $4500pp.
