I met Dora Sandoval, owner of the Rocio Del Mar Liveaboard Dive Boat, a few years ago. A popular dive magazine sent me to write an article and take pictures about her boat that she proudly operates in some of Mexico´s most magical waters. I found myself very impressed by the quality of service Dora and her crew work diligently to deliver to her divers on every trip. I remember she mentioned to me about her latest adventure which was redesigning another liveaboard, “Quino El Guardian”. The Quino was to be a vessel specifically built not only for scuba diving but also for scientific research and education. I became very interested in her idea especially during these times when our oceans face grave danger due to the devastation we humans are imposing around the world.
