Bottom Breathers Liveaboard: 29-Jan-*2020* – Socorro

Updated: 1-Jul-2019, 2 berths remaining!

As many of you know, our planned Socorro trip in June 2018 didn’t go as planned due to hurricanes. We ended up diving in the Sea of Cortez instead of Socorro. So, we’re going to do it again, but for real this time! To avoid the bad weather time, we’re going in a different season…humpback whale season!

We’ll see mantas, sharks, sharks, sharks, maybe dolphins, mantas, sharks, puffers, octopus, and lots more (did I say sharks?)! This trip will be on board the Nautilus Belle Amie for 9 days. The trip departs from Cabo San Lucas (airport: SJD) on 29-Jan-2020 and returns on 6-Feb-2020.

Found some great videos from other folks who have been on this boat and itinerary:

Where: Socorro Islands (Mexico), departing from and returning to Cabo San Lucas
When: Depart Cabo San Lucas on 29-Jan-2020, return 6-Feb-2020
Who: Bottom Breathers Dive Club
Boat: Nautilus Belle Amie (video about the boat:

Cost (per person – availability as of 1-Jul-2019):

  • Premium Suite – $4,695 – main deck, 1 berth available (male)
  • Superior Suite – $4,095 – upper deck, SOLD OUT
  • Stateroom – $3,595 – lower deck, 1 berth available (male)
  • Single Stateroom – $4,494 – lower deck rooms for single diver, SOLD OUT
  • We will not use the triple/quad occupancy stateroom shown in boat layout.

Every room has a private bathroom in the room. Each room has two bunks (except for single rooms). The Superior Suite rooms can be rearranged so that the two bunks are pushed together into a queen sized bed.

Since this trip is a little more expensive than our past trips (but it’s worth the money), we’re starting even earlier to give everyone time to save and budget for this great opportunity to dive a spectacular site.

We had the July meeting at our house so we could use the park next door for navigation practice. Luckily, it was perfect weather and we had quite a few folks walking around the park testing their compass skills!
