The Best Scuba Liveaboards In Mexico

In BAJA CALIFORNIA, DIVING by Isabella BiavaLeave a Comment

Joining a Scuba Liveaboard in Mexico is one of the most incredible experiences that all underwater lovers MUST have at least once in their life.

The only risk is that you get addicted.

Scuba Liveaboards are small cruises with a limited number of participants with the sole purpose of diving, although on some occasions other outdoor activities are available in the spare time.

In Mexico, you have the opportunity to join a Liveaboard on the West Coast, around Guadalupe Island, off the Baja California Shores,  Socorro Island, further south in the State of Colima and in the Sea of Cortez.

The sea of Cortez, otherwise called the Aquarium of the world, is home of 900 species of fish and colorful corals, while around Socorro and Guadalupe you can see huge pelagics, such as Hammer Sharks, Giant Mantas and, and the great white shark to name a few.

In this post, I will explain extensively the characteristic of each dive sites, when is the best time to visit what are the best cruises and their main features.

If you are thinking about joining a cruise and you are undecided, this post is for you.

Liveaboard dive sites in Mexico: an overview

Socorro island liveaboard – Pelagic lovers find paradise in Socorro Islands – An archipelago of 4 islands also called Revillagigedo islands, home of many species of sharks, Humpback whales, dolphins, and large Manta Rays. Although you cannot expect to see coral reefs, you will be busy enough to spot the spectacular huge creatures.  The visibility in this area varies from 15-50m (49-164ft) and water temperatures range from 21 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit) up to 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit). It’s a very remote area that you can only reach on a liveaboard, a protected biosphere where conservation organizations are working to protect the delicate ecosystem.

Guadalupe island shark diving – A tiny volcanic island, and newly named Bio-Sphere reserve, off the coast of Baja California, is one of the most popular spots in the World where to see the great white shark. Since it has been proclaimed a protected area, the number of dive cruises permits are limited in order to protect the environments. Therefore this is one of the liveaboards that you would need to book way in advance, sometimes even 2 years, to save your spot. 

Sea of Cortez liveaboard – Protected by the Baja California Peninsula, the Sea of Cortez, also called Gulf of Mexico is a paradise both for divers and snorkelers, for its rich marine life and calm waters. Jacque Cousteau denominated it the Aquarium of the world for a reason. Here divers can admire spectacular colorful corals and nudibranchs as much as many different species of fish of any size and color, all year round. It’s also possible to dive in the Sea of Cortez with daily trips from La Paz, Loreto, Los Cabos, and Cabo Pulmo, although spending a week on a Liveaboard is a completely different and unique experience and you reach spots that you wouldn’t be able to reach on a daily trip.

      When is the best time to join a Liveaboard diving trip in Mexico

      Mexico diving is great all year round but there are certain months of the year that are more suitable for each Liveaboard itineraries. Here below I will give you all the details so that you can decide when to book your trip on a scuba liveaboard in Mexico.

      Best time to join a liveaboard to Socorro Islands

      Pelagic species are present year-round at Socorro Island, but Liveaboards operates only from November to May to guarantee the best conditions for a comfortable journey.

      The sea conditions in the Pacific are in fact calmest during these months.

      The weather is generally sunny with occasional rain showers.

      Also during the winter months, divers also have the chance of spotting a whale shark or one of the thousands of humpbacks that breed and calve in the area, besides Manta Rays, that are around all year.

      Unfortunately, at this time, visibility can be quite disturbed because of the plankton blooms, which increases during the full moon.

      Best time to join a Liveaboard to Guadalupe island

      From August to October, it’s time for Guadalupe Island, where divers have the chance to go cage diving with great white sharks.

      With the clear waters of Guadalupe and reliable great white sightings, this is sure to be an overexciting trip to remember.

      Elsewhere in Mexico, November to May is considered high season for general tourism, causing an increase in the prices of flights and accommodation on the mainland.

      June and July are considered off-season because the sea is too rough and the water too warm for the pelagics.

      But if you happen to be in the area, local dive shops offer land-based daily tours from Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Cabo Pulmo, and Loreto and it’s time to find great deals as well. Temperature is really hot but also the water so that you can easily dive in your lycra.

      Best time to dive in the Sea of Cortez

      Although diving in the Sea of Cortez is available all year round with daily dives from the shore, Liveaboards tend to operate in this area from July through November, with some exceptions.  

      This time of the year is when the Sea of Cortez is at its warmest as the water reaches approximately 80°F (27°C), the best months for hammerhead encounters in the region.

      Whale sharks can also occasionally be spotted in Cabo Pulmo National Park and in the Bay of La Paz in October, although it’s not the ideal time to travel weather-wise for the higher risk of rain. 

      Visibility is great all year round but at its best in the summer months.

      Summer is also the best time to get great deals as it’s considered low season.

      However, if you are particularly fond of pelagics, it’s best to dive in the wintertime either on a Liveaboard to Socorro or taking day trips from the mainland.

      General information

      Divers aboard a Mexico dive liveaboard can expect to do 3 – 4 dives per day, except for departure and return days, and depending on the weather and itinerary.

      All itineraries are subject to change depending on the divers and the weather, it will always be the Captain’s final choice, and safety is always the main priority.

      Mexico Diving Safety

      As mentioned before Socorro diving can be quite challenging as currents can be strong and the sea agitated.

      The sea of Cortez is calmer for sure and in the Guadalupe island, not many skills are required as you are in the cage with the guide.

      Also, the liveaboard selected by Liveaboard.com operates in a secure environment, following all the safety rules.

      However, things can happen both underwater and on the surface for many different reasons.

      Regardless of the conditions of the sea and the safety provided by the boat operators, having dive insurance is highly recommended and most of the time mandatory by the operator in order to join the trip.

      There are many dive insurance that offer packages that also include general travel insurance and vice versa.

      I personally partner with World Nomads which is general travel insurance whose premium plan also includes diving up to 30 mt. (please read the clauses very well before booking).

      However, there are many to chose from. It’s very important that before you chose one, you read very carefully what’s included and not.

      Sometimes insurance policies contract can be tricky.

      I am using World Nomads since I found it pretty much straight forward.

      Socorro Island Liveaboard

      Socorro is the friendly name of a group of 4 volcanic islands officially called Revillagigedo Archipelago.

      Situated at about 400km (250mi)off the pacific coast of Baja California and Colima, Mexico, to which state they belong.

      Its cold waters and currents make it the perfect habitat for large species of pelagic among which, Hammerhead, silky silver and white tip sharks, whales, dolphins, but most of all large Manta Rays.

      However, no coral reef is visible.

      Their remote distance makes these islands only accessible via Liveaboard.

      Dive Sites around Socorro

      SAN BENEDICTO – the most popular area for coming up and close with Giant Pacific Manta Rays.

      SOCORRO ISLAND – the most popular of the four islands, hence the name. From here you can indeed have the most spectacular encounters with the biggest inhabitants of the ocean. From January till March you can swim with Dolphins, while from January till April thousands of Humpback whales in their breeding season will populate these waters while all year round Manta Rays and Silky, Galapagos, white tip and silver tip sharks can be easily found.

      ROCA PARTIDA: A tiny island, the smallest of the four, but with a very diverse ecosystem. It’s basically a pinnacle which attracts large schools of Jacks and Tuna, besides many smaller species together with sharks hiding in the caves at around 13m (40ft)

      CLARION ISLAND: three volcanic peaks form this peculiar island which even has its own Angelfish, the Clarion Angelfish, and it can be spotted cleaning the large pelagic species. Also, Humpback whales can be seen in this area from January until April.

      Socorro Islands diving tips

      • Certificate and experience required – Socorro can be a challenging diving area suitable for advanced divers as sometimes there are strong currents and big waves, and most dive spots are quite deep. Therefore the majority of the Liveaboard operators most require you to have your Advanced Open water with at least 50 logged dives. Even though there are a few operators that only need you to have your Open Water and no minimum logged dives, I strongly recommend not to take it lightly, and only chose this trip if you have enough experience. Please always check this before booking and it is important to remember your dive logs/logbooks.
      • Water temperature –  water temperature is around 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit) in November, 21 degrees Celsius (69-70 degrees Fahrenheit) in February and back up to 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) in May. Socorro has the calmest seas from November to May
      • Visibility – visibility is generally great but it also depends on the plankton in the water which depends on the moon, in other words, there is more plankton and less visibility with the full moon.
      • Language spoken – The main language is Spanish, but, English is widely spoken
      • Currency – Currency is the Mexican Peso but please check with the boat of your choice the currency and cards accepted for onboard payments of extra expenses.
      • Plug –  it’s the same plug as the US; two flat prongs with the standard voltage being 127V. Please remember to bring an adaptor for all your electrics if you are not coming from the US.
      • WIFI – it’s not available on all the boat – but it’s better to stay disconnected and focus on the beauty of the underwater world.

      How to get To Socorro

      As mentioned before getting to Socorro is only possible via Liveaboard.

      Liveaboards normally depart either from Cabo San Lucas or San Cose del Cabo, both very popular touristic destination in the South of Baja California in the municipality of Los Cabos

      The closest international airport to these two cities is Los Cabos International Airport, which has flights arriving from the United States, Canada, and other main Mexican Cities.

      Operators can always arrange transportation to your hotel or to the Marina.

      It’s always recommended to arrive one day earlier from the cruise departure in order to avoid missing your cruise for a flight delay. Besides you can enjoy the beautiful Baja California coasts as well.

      Guadalupe Island shark diving

      Guadalupe Island is a small volcanic island off the coast of the Mexican state of Baja California and belongs to the municipality of Ensenada. It’s surprisingly inhabited with a population of 213 people only, a community of fishermen.

      Guadalupe rugged landscape stretches over 35 kilometers (22 mi) north-south and up to 9.5 kilometers (5.9 mi) east-west, with a total area of 243.988 km2 (94.204 sq mi).

      Its highest volcanic mountain point rises to a height of 1,298 meters (4,259 ft)  in the north and its smaller counterpart on the southern end is the 975 meters (3,199 ft) El Picacho.

      Guadalupe Island is one of the most demanded liveaboard trips for cage diving with Great White sharks experience.

      The fact that the area has been recently proclaimed a biosphere, environmental operators, and government institutions are even more careful in the conservation of the natural behaviors and environment of the sharks, to be as minimally invasive as possible.

      Guadalupe Island liveaboard highlights

       171 individual sharks have been identified in the region and every few months different sharks come by.

      July and August are the months of the teenage males, a little more aggressive than females, which provide divers with a thrilling experience.

      In September the females start showing up swimming around together with the males. 

      From October through November is when large females appear, magnificent and curious creatures that will get close to the cage and will give photography lovers the perfect opportunity for some amazing shark underwater shots.

      Liveaboard to Guadalupe Island is solely focused on Whale Sharks, although it’s not rare to find furry seals and elephant as Guadalupe hosts a population of over 10,000 of them together with   Northern elephant seals.

      Main dive sites around Guadalupe Island

      There are not specific dive sites. Once the boats arrive at the Island they start preparing the cages where, in the next couple of days, divers and non-divers take turns for the descent with the instructor.

      Guadalupe Island liveaboard diving tips

      • Certificate requirements – Liveaboards to Guadalupe island generally offer 5 days itineraries with around 4 dives per day. The cages are lowered down into the water immediately on arrival so the sharks can get used to it. The cages are hung at around 10 metres down into the water and Surface Supplied Air is used by all the divers, which means that you don’t need to be a certified diver to participate. However, certified divers can go deeper with an instructor for a different experience. Since every boat operator has different rules and requirements, it’s very important that you check the itinerary section for all these details. 
      • Water temperature – between 19 degrees Celsius (66 Fahrenheit) and 22 degrees Celsius (71 Fahrenheit).

      • Make sure you check all the boat details and the terms and conditions, including the cancellation policy.  This information is available to you on the website, while you make the booking, but if you don’t find it,  you can always ask via email or by phone to the customer service team.
      • Make sure you have the necessary diving experience required for the trip you chose and the necessary documents
      • Arrange your flights only when Liveaboard.com confirms that the boat is available.
      • In doubt, always ask.

      Enjoy your diving cruise!
