This is my third trip to the Revillagigedo Islands. All three times were aboard the Belle Amie. Socorro is magic for me and all divers that visit, as it is always different, but it never disappoints. The reason I choose the Belle Amie though is because of the crew. Captain Ramon, First Mate Tony, Engineer Danny, Divemasters Pablo, Stein, Pascal, Casey and Ivan, Hostesses Nubia, Saki and Ana, and Deckhand Donovan all are top-notch and are the epitome of a liveaboard crew. Each is essential and not only does a fantastic job, but they each personally took care of me. I saw countless oceanic mantas, dolphins, and seven species of shark, silky, Galapagos, white tip reef, oceanic blacktip, silvertip, scalloped hammerhead, and tiger. While I love to visit new places, Socorro will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will continue to return.
