Socorro Island is one of the greatest destinations for diving. There are not so many places where you can meet such variety of big pelagic creatures. Manta rays, dolphins, hammerheads and several other types of sharks can be met while diving at Socorro. Even humpback whales can be seen. Although marine life is rich and splendid here, underwater sceneries are not various. Due to volcanic action, there are no colorful reef scenes on Socorro.
