In Topic: Cocos or Socorro?

21 November 2012 - 06:58 PM

no easy answer. best boat is cocos. sea hunter. cocos given hammerheads white tips. great location. maybe mantas silky whale sharks plus who knows. socorro area. mantas. friendly dolphin encounter given. also. whale sharks in the early part season,hammerheads not likely large schools but small groups, humpback whales in the winter though mainly seen on surface and heard uw.

bottom line both great. nowdays socorro is better bargain. cocos much more money. i love the sea hunter but i think more bang for your bucks in socorro. big difference in what you see depending on when you go for socorro

In Topic: socorro best time?

I am plannning a trip to Socorro next year what is the best time??


Best time varies depending on what you want to see. I like the first trips when they open up in Nov. Likely encounters with whale sharks, mantas, hammerheads etc and the water is still warm (low 80-high 70's though you might hit some thermoclines). Getting in Jan onward you will see the humpback whales from the boat and if lucky while diving though I think thats not too common. Of course hearing them underwater is nice. Water is cooler at this time. You will also have encounters with mantas dolphin and various species of sharks. I can't talk about the spring months since i never was there then.
