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
Today was an epic day of diving. The kind that makes your heart smile. On our first dive, we were greeted immediately with mobula rays, and then a beautiful giant black manta that serenaded us the majority of the dive. Amidst the activity some friendly dolphins also checked us out. It was truly breathtaking.2018-06-26Read More
On almost every dive, we encountered friendly giants mantas, massive tunas, and on 3 dives, the biggest fish of the ocean: a whale shark. Some of us were lucky enough to witness the few hours before birth of a baby dolphin, a couple of divers got the privilege to see the healthy baby 4 days later.2018-06-05Read More
But as they approached the boat we realized they were not actually the bottlenoses we’d seen a lot. We then realized they were false killer whales! I was incredibly exciting when 15-20 of them decided to stick around. We even saw two of them head-butting!2018-06-04Read More
As we headed back to the rock, we were greeted by an amazing manta show. This was the kind of show that makes Revillagigedo so special, with mantas passing over the head of everyone, bathing in bubbles, waving with their cephalic fins and looking deep in our eyes.2018-05-27Read More

So we started up with high expectations at Socorro and getting out on the lava flow in search of this big group of hammerhead sharks that we have seen here and the very very good encounters of the giant mantas that we have had this year. And we dove and we dove and dove and , well one shark there a couple of nice passes with single hammerheads. At one time we sat us down on a ledge at a 100ft and started to shark whisper.. First groups jack fish where coming from above , then some grunts and Mexican hog fish , big size curious leatherbass then the first shark a small Galapagos, then whitetip then a bigger Galapagos, then a giant Galapagos !! And I stopped , it made a couple of very close and fast approaches so that was the biggest excitement of the day. Later at the night we had silkie sharks around and curiouse ones so we went in to the water and had some very nice passes seeing them just a feet away from us. A beautiful animal. Interesting is that we only could see females. Next day we tried our other site and…2011-05-12Read More
