Underside of a Giant Manta at Socorro

DMs Say Goodbye to Socorro for the Season

I feel very lucky because is my second time doing the last trip of the season to the Socorro Islands. I’ve been having a great time with my fellow crew members and lovely guests. In just three days of diving in El Bolier and Roca Partida, we were so lucky to see almost everything: mantas, sharks, schools of fish, and Mr Big… a female whale shark, about 12 metres long!

Thank you, Socorro!

Then the storm Favio sent us to the Sea of Cortez to finish the trip and the two days of diving around Cerralvo Island was great, we had a nice time there too…

Thanks, Nautilus for this great job! And now we sail to Ensenada and then… Guadalupe Island for the GREAT WHITE SHARK SEASON……

What a great way to end the season, being the last boat to go to Revillagigedo for the next four months. It seemed like the animals knew we were leaving and they came to say goodbye. On the last day of diving at Roca Partida, we had pretty much everything; lots of sharks, mantas, tunas schooling, dolphins, and a massive whale shark that just kept doing loops around the rock (we got to see it on three dives!).

To finish the trip we came to the calm waters of the Sea of Cortez and enjoyed the amazing amounts of fish at the famous Cerralvo Island.

Another great season that has come to an end, I can’t wait to come back next season!

This was the last trip of the season in Revillagigedo Islands, not only for the Belle Amie but for everyone because we were the last boat on the islands. That means that we had all the action just for us, and we had lots of action, it was AWESOME!

We saw everything you can ask for; you name it and we find it for you: playful dolphins, dancing giant mantas, turtles, hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, tiger sharks and even a 12m long whale shark!!! It was a really amazing trip and everyone on the boat was very excited after every dive.

I am looking forward to coming again at the beginning of the next season; I am going to miss the friendly mantas and dolphins. See you soon mantas, have a good summer in Revillagigedo 😉
