Join SDM editor Eli Martinez, and shark photographer, Andy Murch to seek out Humpback Whales and enormous Manta Rays. as well as Galapagos, Silky and Whitetip sharks at spectacular Socorro Island! The expedition is specifically timed to arrive at the archipelago during the heart of the humpback whale migration when mothers are looking after their newborn calves. The calves are insatiably curious and have a reputation for approaching snorkelers and divers. The Mantas in the Archipelago are huge and extremely social creatures. They have been known to pick on particular divers, returning to them dive after dive for attention. The abundant marinelife at Socorro attracts sharks and other pelagic predators from far and wide. Although its possible to see any number of different species, the most common sharks at the archipelago are Galapagos sharks, silky sharks and whitetip reef sharks.
