    Ecotourism at Socorro

    As sharks, whales, tunas and marlins populations plummet, we must carefully choose sustainable actions if we ever hope to keep these big pelagic species from extinction. Through ecotourism, a world where pelagic species thrive and flourish is possible. We know, because we witnessed it, and it was magical.

  • diver films dolphins with GoPro

    This is the trip of dolphins.

    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.

  • Nautilus Undersea and Sunset

    Revillagigedo trip aboard the Nautilus Undersea

    First day, ever, in the Revalli… Reville… in the Socorro islands and we have already feasted with Silver and White pointed Sharks.
    But what will stay forever engraved in my memories, is my first in-dive encounter with a Manta Ray, then the second, the third, the fourth… And someone told me this is only the first day!

  • Jacks, dolphins and mantas at El Boiler

    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.

  • Everywhere you look there is something fabulous to see

    Absolutely amazing holiday on board the Nautilus Explorer. The diving here has lived up to every expectation, culminating in 6 Giant Mantas circling our dive group on the penultimate dive – breathtaking! In addition to the Mantas we’ve seen a huge variety of sea life including many different sharks – most impressive being the large Galapagos Shark.

  • Roca o'neil dive site

    Roca O’Neil

    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…

  • “It felt like being right in a National Geographic documentary”

    “This is the calmest ocean I’ve ever seen out here, and I’ve been on countless trips to Socorro”, chef Steve on the Gallant Lady announced, while serving an absolute delicious breakfast. Only moments later, Captain Adrian interrupted our meal, announcing dolphins through the radio. Everybody rushed out on deck, to witness a unique natural spectacle. Bottlenose dolphins were jumping out of the water as far as we could see, surrounding us and following us at the tip of the boat.
