Roca Partida

Roca Partida may seem like it is out in the middle of nowhere, sitting approximately 70 miles west of Socorro and 85 miles from San Benedicto, but it is thriving with life. Accessible only by liveaboard, this is an advanced dive on a pinnacle that rises from hundreds of feet of water.

This site is a magnet for giant Pacific manta rays, schooling hammerhead sharks, humpback whales, whale sharks, dolphins, whitetips, Galapagos sharks, and schools of tuna and jacks.
