Mexico Liveaboard Diving

Click on an image to enlarge

MV Valentina is a 125 ft (38m) Mexican liveaboard boat operating tours to both Socorro and the Sea of Cortez when each destination is in season. A maximum of 20 guests will be on board, spread among the 10 air-conditioned cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms as well as TVs and DVD players.

You can relax in the air-conditioned restaurant and lounge on the main deck, where you can enjoy the creations of the 2 on board chefs and the attention of a waiter. There are plenty of other spaces to relax including an outdoor chill-out area and the spacious sundeck.

Guests can dine and relax in the air-conditioned saloon/dining area on the main deck, which has comfortable soft bench seating and sofas. If you prefer you can eat 'al fresco' in the shaded open area on the main deck.

There is also a bar serving complimentary beverages, including draft-beer and soft drinks. The cuisine and the clientele can be described as international with a strong Asian influence. There are a lot of relaxation spaces on the main deck and the upper deck, where there are both shaded and sun-drenched places to lie back and dream of your next dive from the impressive, steel-hulled MV Valentina.
