GIANT MANTAS AT SOCORRO ISLAND
Are you Down?
Guest Blogs – March 23rd
Our second time here in the Revillagigedo Archipelago and definitely not our last!! Each trip is unique and special and different – with different experiences at each island. As a special treat, we were able to see humpbacks and false killer whales on this trip. And, of course, there were sharks everywhere. But, the highlight for me was today at the Boiler – when a female mobula birostris spent the entire dive eyeing my buddies and I.

Never have I encountered such friendly mantas! Just got up from the last dive of the trip, and I have to say that without the delicious meals we would never have made it to the end. Shout out to the chef! The whole crew has been very welcoming and knowledgable, and has facilitated some of the best dives.

Starting off with a small school of Hammerheads passing by closely and followed by many playful and huge Manta rays the day was a full success. Accompanied by the best crew, divemasters and very delicious food we ended the day all happy, looking forward to all the pleasures that await us tomorrow.

The expectations were very high because we have been watching many videos from this trip and in these videos everybody was talking about Roca Partida is on fire. Well… Now we are here and the only thing I can say is that Roca Partida IS on fire baby ;o)
Live to dive, dive for life,

I always say; The less you expect, the more you get. In this case you better expect at least a white tip shark because otherwise it will blow your mind. For me it has been a dream to come here for the last 5 years and I am sure I will be back. Great crew, great boat and the best dives ever. Go with the flow.

All four dives at Roca Partida were stunning, with multiple sightings of Giant Manta Rays that approached divers closely – one even performing part of a barrel roll. Hammerhead Sharks, Galapagos Sharks, Silver Tip Sharks, and White Tip Sharks were sighted often.
