Get your camera ready for this 6-day liveaboard embarking from Phoenix, Arizona. Nick-named “The Aquarium of the World” by diving legend Jacques Custeau, lovers of ocean creatures cannot miss diving the Sea of Cortez and the Midriff Islands!

Our home for the week, Rocio del Mar will take us around Isla Espiritu Santo, Isla San Francisquito, Isla Las Animas, and Isla Cerralvo.
