Diving on the Rocio del Mar in Mexico

Cruiser Interior and Services

The boat is fully air-conditioned. Although the place lacks a Wi-Fi connection that is important for today’s people, communication is still available and possible. Signal strength varies however so expect interruptions. This isn’t a big deal though since a lounge is present to cater to the social needs of the guests inside.

Places to Explore

The Socorro Islands is one of the highlights of some itineraries available. This diving spot is perfect for people wanting to swim with various marine creatures. This includes hammerhead sharks, whales, and manta rays. At Baja California, you can have the chance to get close up to sea lions. Cabo Pulmo is also one place rich with exotic marine life.

The clear waters are surely perfect for picture-taking and documentation. These diving spots are also guaranteed to have deep waters. This allows for the divers to have more breathing room while exploring the rich marine life that the vast sea of Mexico has to offer.

Diving Deck and Exterior

A diving deck is always required in order to have a worthy and safe diving experience. Luckily, manufacturers of Rocio Del Mar managed to build a well-designed diving platform where guests can easily put on their diving gear, and they’re good to go. Nitrox, for an improved driving experience, is also available. Be mindful though that this add-on is only available for professional divers, those who have EANx certification in particular.

For vloggers and people who just want to document their trip, underwater photography is also possible. There are camera tables aimed at maintaining your underwater camera equipment.


The Rocio Del Mar offers a few varied itineraries and guests may have the ability to modify them with the consent of the management. Some marine species such as humpback whales can only be seen during a season so be sure to plan everything ahead to avoid any form of regrets.

As mentioned above, the package includes diving in a lot of famous diving spots like the Socorro Islands and Baja California. The majority of Sea of Cortez, in Particular, is famous for its coral views that can be clearly seen underwater all thanks to the crystalline-like water.

July to October is definitely the most recommended period to cruise the seas of Mexico because of the number of marine life species available around this time of the year. The weather is also always calm, which allows for more outdoor activities to take place. But either way, the crew is always there to ensure that their guests have a great time while on the trip.
