Giant manta rays show up in force at San Benedicto Island

Location: The Canyon and The Boiler divesites, Isla San Benedicto, Socorro/Revillagigedos, Mexico
Comments: Divemaster Sten reports that today turned out to be a sad but excellent good-bye to Socorro/Revillagigedo Islands.   The Canyon dive site was pretty quiet but the divers luck came at The Boiler with a last ballet of 6 giant mantas.  In Sten’s words  “interaction with curious mantas who would not leave us alone and gave us so much that we had giant manta rays sticking out of our ears!!”  Well said.
Weather: Nice surface weather with a low – moderate swell from the northwest and scattered clouds.
Water: In-water visibility 120 feet, water temperatures ranging from 74 to 80 degree F (this is the first report of cooler water at Socorro).
