This incident took place on board the Socorro Vortex after the instruction to stop "shark wrangling" on all vessels was completely ignored by the Operations Director at Pelagic Fleet. August, 2019.

On November 30th, 2019, with guests on board, the Socorro Vortex crashed into the fuel dock of the Cabo San Lucas Marina creating damage to the boat, the dock, and a fuel spill. The boat was never hauled out of the water to assess the hull's damage, it was never repaired, and continues to run trips at the risk of the souls on board. It is also still being promoted as the premium & luxury liveaboard in Mexico. The incident happened 10 days after the founder and former CEO of the company sent a letter to the Executive Board addressing safety concerns in the management of the company.
