Pelagic fleet has added a new member to its line of signature vessels.
The new Socorro Vortex is the fastest liveaboard to travel to the Socorro and Guadalupe Islands with a top speed of 20 knots.
The 140 foot boat – which is a former Canadian coast guard vessel – was built for adventure and hardcore worldwide expeditions. Now though, she’s been reinvented to be the ‘ultimate’ luxury liveaboard experience.
The new Socorro Vortex will cater to 14 guests and offer first-class, deluxe accommodation. It also features complimentary high speed internet and Wi-Fi for those divers who need to be connected at all times. Other complimentary benefits include gourmet dining, bar, nitrox (as this is a nitrox only vessel) and a stainless steel jacuzzi. Oh and did we mention? It has a helipad too. And they handpick their wines…
Those booking onto the Socorro Vortex are likely to see giant mantas, dolphins and various species of shark and seals.
Included in the price are surface cage dive and submersible experiences. There’ll be one divemaster to every two divers. We had a great time testing out a VR headset on their stand at DEMA which mimics these cage experiences and we have to say, they look pretty awesome.
Voyages to Guadalupe run from August to October, while trips to Socorro run from November to June. Prices begin at $6,000.
