Cassiopeia is a luxury steel-hulled vessel offering outstanding service, sumptuous cuisine and most importantly, awesome Mexico liveaboard diving. Stylish, spacious accommodation and quality of service (there are 11 crew) are priority, contributing to a great dive trip experience.

This beautiful Socorro and Sea of Cortez liveaboard is 131 ft (40m) long and sleeps 26 divers in elegant, en-suite cabins. The boat itself has been designed and built specifically for comfort and stability during long crossings even in rough conditions. There is plenty of lounging space on the huge 1,000 square feet sundeck with comfortable sun loungers, cushions, chairs and tables. There is also an air-conditioned saloon and lounge area with entertainment system. Complimentary beer and wine are available.

The large dive deck provides ample space for both divers and their equipment, and the extensive platform ensures ease and comfort as you enter the water or dive tender. From November to April, Cassiopeia operates 8 night Socorro diving cruises from Cabo San Lucas. During August, September and October you can join an Amazing 6-day Sea of Cortez trip out of La Paz and enjoy the wonders of the World's Aquarium.
