April 2019 - M/V Socorro Vortex sailed on her maiden voyage to Revillagigedo after over a year of being refitted into one of the best diving liveaboards out there. Much blood, sweat and toil have gone into this project, which as seen the launch of one of the most ambitious liveaboards the diving world has seen so far. Welcome to the world of Socorro Vortex.
"Few things can compare to seeing your vision materialized. A project so personal, to the point of knowing what's behind every wall, under each floor, and above every ceiling. Now I can only wish her fair winds, following seas, and as many happy divers as can be."
- Jorge Hauser (CEO & Vortex Project Manager)
