STRONG, PRACTICAL & ADVENTUROUS


Quino's owner, passionate about protecting the oceans, re-designed Quino into a vessel specifically built for scuba diving trips, scientific research and educational programs.  She offers some interesting specialty trips (such as Citizen Science programs, exploration to Clipperton Island and the Benito Islands, videography workshops, rebreather diving and education programs) in addition to regularly scheduled trips to Socorro and Sea of Cortez.  If you're the adventure type of diver, this liveaboard offers some exciting opportunities.

Between dives, you can grab a sun lounger on the top deck and position it in sun or shade. For those with a preference for air con, on the main deck there's a simple salon with plenty of sofas, a TV and a computer table. Dining can be set up on the top deck or inside on the main deck in the good-sized dining room.  This area easily commodates all 18 passengers and offers a projector and a drop-down screen for group presentations.  All 5 cabins, 4 of which are quad cabins, are all located on the lower deck.

You'll find the dive deck to be well-organized with gear storage and a large camera table. The dive platform offers easy access to the inflatable tenders.
