The M/V Southern Sport is a sleek, fast, and comfortable ship that takes passengers to Socorro, the Revillagigedo archipelago, and the World's Aquarium - the Sea of Cortez. She accommodated 18 divers in 9 air-conditioned cabins with plenty of storage space. There is a wide choice of cabins to suit all budgets, from the lower-deck twin cabins with shared bathrooms to the upper-deck double suites with private bathrooms. Guests can experience sailing on the top deck, enjoying delicious meals, and getting together to watch movies on the main deck lounge, which includes a TV and entertainment area and a separate dining area spacious enough for 18 guests to enjoy 3 plentiful meals per day and complimentary soft drinks, beer, and wine. The sun deck is partially shaded and a great place to relax between dives.

The MV Southern Sport liveaboard schedules trips to some of Mexico’s best dive destinations. Itineraries cover the Socorro Islands and the Revillagigedo archipelago, where divers can dive with schooling hammerheads, playful giant manta rays, humpback whales during the migrations, or incredible Great White shark encounters. The large dive deck at the back of the boat offers ample room for kitting up and gear storage, and photographers are taken care of with camera tables, rinse tanks, and charging stations around the ship. Nitrox is available for those certified. Scientists, shark experts, and filmmakers love this ship because of its onboard configuration and service.

The Southern Sport liveaboard is available for group charters and individual bookings. Book online today.
