Nautilus Belle Amie - Socorro Islands - December 23-31, 2021

Nautilus Belle Amie

Christmas in the Socorro Islands

December 23-31, 2021


Christmas with the sharks at Socorro Island on the Belle Ami! 

 

This adventure will take you to the Revillagigedo Archipelago in Mexico. Socorro Island along with Roca Partida, San Benedicto, and Clarión are all amazing spots for scuba diving. These four islands are commonly referred to the Socorro Islands or simply "Socorro". 

 

Socorro is all about amazing interaction with giant mantas. No other mantas in the world behave like this. We don't know why but we love it… and the mantas clearly love us back. November and December boast the warmest water temps of the year in the low 80's. Aside from the usual interaction with mantas, dolphins and 10 kinds of sharks, this is the best time of year to see whale sharks in blue water and often excellent visibility.

 

This trip is both camera friendly and rebreather friendly!


The Belle Amie is a luxurious, stable vessel custom built for divers to the same SOLAS standards as the largest ocean-going cruise ships. With over 25 years-experience in liveaboard diving, this crew has a pretty good idea of when and how to get you in the water for the best possible diving experiences off Baja California, Mexico.


Our unique adventure package offers 9 days, 8-nights accommodation on the fabulous Nautilus Belle Ami liveaboard where we will visit the Socorro Islands. Over five full dive days you will be able to experience some of our favourite sites such as El Canyon, the Boiler, Red Rocks, Roca Partida, Cabo Pearse, Punta Tosca and Roca Oneal. We know that many of our guests want the option of as many dives as possible and we strive to offer an average of 4 dives a day other than the day that we do our mandatory check-in at the local navy base when you will likely have the option of 3 dives plus our world-famous silky shark night snorkel. Note that weather conditions, Mother Ocean or crowding by some of our competitors may limit some diving. This adventure may include some challenging dive conditions and may not be suitable for novice experience level divers.

 

This adventure includes single cabin, stateroom or superior cabin accommodation, 3 meals a day (plus snacks, water, coffee, espresso, tea, hot chocolate), nitrox for certified divers, unlimited diving with the dive day built around four daily dives.


Our Christmas Gift to you - FREE nitrox ($100) and a $200 airfare credit
