Liveaboard trips in Mexico with Rocio del Mar

You can enjoy a free glass of beer or wine in the air-conditioned lounge or dedicated dining area, although the open air shaded sun deck is a more popular spot with its soft furnishings and ever-changing views of the Pacific ocean. Sea kayaks are available for those who wish to explore the islands during surface times.

10 crew attend to your every need and the scuba diving activities are conducted both from the stern of the mothership and from inflatable tenders, depending on the nature of the dive site. Nautilus Lifeline lost diver devices are provided for extra guest safety. Nitrox is available at additional charge. The well-organized dive deck includes a camera table and rinse tank plus individual equipment stations.

Rocio Del Mar is comfortable and roomy without being palatial and is sure to satisfy the needs of those who seek an unforgettable Mexican liveaboard experience.
