Roca Partida, one of the four tiny volcanic islands that comprise the Socorro chain off the coast of Mexico, has long been known as a diving hotspot, thanks to the incredible range of ocean wildlife found in the region. Indeed, 25 different types of sharks, more than 1,000 humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins and scores of other underwater species congregate in these waters. This beautifully photographed program displays the myriad creatures found here, highlighting the link between the Sorocco chain and the “shark superhighways” between the Galapagos and Cocos islands.
