This liveaboard's itineraries aren't ideal for beginners. You'll be exploring remote regions with cool water, ripping currents, and potentially rough and exposed surface conditions. But, you don't have to be a pro diver to enjoy your time here! The Rocio Del Mar's dedicated international crew is happy to help intermediate guests get comfortable, offering each diver as much or little assistance as is needed. Back on board, you'll find everything you need to enjoy an extended stay at sea, with delicious meals, generous cabins and common areas, and plenty of chances to kick back and relax between dives.

You'll also find snacks, hot drinks, and fruit offered around the clock, and alcohol for sale once the day's diving is done.
