We started off jumping close to the wall. While swimming towards the receiver, several whitetips crossed our way. Suddenly, a hammerhead appeared in the blue and disappeared as fast as he came. When swimming to the inner side of the lava finger, several whitetips were circling between the rocks, curious to find out what these black things were, making these strange bubbles. Almost as the hammerhead, a big manta, followed by blind passengers below him, showed up swimming gently above us and disappeared again in the blue.2019-04-12Read More
Yesterday weather conditions invited us to visit Roca O´Neil, not every trip we are so lucky. Once again, we were the only dive boat around to enjoy the site. One after another all groups drifted along the wall with the sweet current mesmerized by the gorgeous lava formations, the arches and the chimneys, but most of all the cheeky mantas, going from on group of divers to the next, spreading the love equally without engaging for too long with any.2019-04-02Read More
We had hundreds of different types of Jacks taking advantage of the current to hunt the smaller Creolfish. It was a great spectacle!! Especially as a dolphin and its young joined the fun and started chasing around the Jacks seemingly just for fun! After 5 minutes the mum and kid reunited swimming together belly to belly away into the blue; they looked just like they were having a little chuckle after scaring the Jacks.2019-03-22Read More
Today we dived Roca O’neil a site we don’t often get to go to as it is very exposed to heavy swell. It is located on Socorro island and consists of craggy black rocks protruding from the surface of the waves several hundred meters from the islands coastline. There is a shallow plateau which extends out from the rocks which steeply drops off on all sides to over 30m (at it’s shallowest point) covered in large boulders and rock formations.The abrupt change in depth creates…2019-03-11Read More
We of course had fantastic dives with plenty of sharks , including large Galapagos, Silvertips and Scalloped Hammerheads as well as several Manta sightings throughout the day. There were also the giant “bait balls” of Bonito Tuna and huge schools of various sized Yellowfin Tuna aswell. Pretty good going to be fair.
However when you couple this with the several Humpback whales in the area breaching and playing around all day it gets a bit more special. We could even hear the Humpbacks singing on a couple of the dives it was absolutely beautiful.2019-02-13Read More
It’s already the last day of diving in this great trip to Revillagigedo and we are finishing with one of the best days at The Boiler I have ever had. As we start to get busy at San Benedicto island some dolphins are jumping around the Explorer entertaining our guests having breakfast.2019-02-10Read More
We get (I think) about 2000 humpback whales to the Revillagigedo. They first come in December and start to return in the end of April. Here they come to give birth, to mate, to fight for the beautiful coming mother humpbacks, breach, dance. They de-lice themselves as well in the warm water.2019-02-06Read More
