The Southern Sport serves the destinations of Guadalupe Island for great white shark cage diving and Socorro for spectacular diving with big animals including sharks and giant Pacific manta rays.
She's a workhorse, built for stability rather than luxury but offers the amenities that adventure divers are looking for. At the top, there's a covered seating / dining area which doubles as an exterior lounge, as there are cushions for the benches. On the main deck you'll find a good-sized, air-conditioned lounge, complete with TV/DVD, films, CDs and an assortment of books. The indoor dining room & bar are just adjacent. Cabins are located across all three decks.
The dive deck includes personal gear boxes, camera table, rinse tanks and fresh water showers.
