    Back in Revilla!

    Back in the beautiful Revilla islands, first day of diving and it was amazing. Great visibility in the canyon, almost no current, but that little bit of current brought some life. 3 or 4 hammerheads around the cleaning station, nearby a big beautiful black manta showed up, then some silvertips start coming closer and closer. I got to count 9 of them. After a while we continued towards the end of the dive site and we found a nice school of jacks, followed by 3-4 silky sharks, our guests were really happy about this they enjoy a lot the first day…

    Great Weather, Diving, & Crew!

    We had a fantastic trip, the diving crew, galley, and deck were outstanding, the food was amazing, and if that wasn’t enough, the weather and the diving were at the very best! – Rodrigo Friscione What an amazing trip! It truly surpassed my expectations! The whole team – dive masters, kitchen staff, deck, and hostesses – were first rate! Revillagigedo is number one in my favorite list. Thank you for making this trip an unforgettable experience. – Carlos Muriel

  • A guest recounts her amazing underwater exploration while diving at Socorro Island…

    Roca Partida has lived up to its hype and then some. The two day stay began with an eventful exploration of the ancient magma plug. Schools of fish including almaco jack pairs, horse-eye jacks and more white-tip sharks than I could count, and of course, the incredible giant mantas. All of this peppered with yellow-tail tuna, silky shark schools and the incredible hammerhead. The moment that I’ll never forget however is the moment our group witnessed two mating white-tips.  As we approached a wall at Roca Partida, we saw a hurricane of white-tips circling vertically. At first we were horrified,…

  • Young tiger shark took center stage at the Boiler at San Benedicto Island. Socorro, Mexico. June 19, 2012.

    Well this morning finds our sleepy ship rising at a more leisurely pace as today is a non diving day while we make our transit from Socorro Island to the Sea of Cortez. We finished our last two days at San Benedicto with much more giant Manta fun at the boiler. Over the last two days our dives at the Boiler were outstanding. The first day back, the seas were up a bit at the boiler, but as our divers were to find out often there is a big positive along with the negative. The seas made if harder getting…

  • Diving Here is Like Swimming in an Aquarium – June 5, 2011 – the Boiler

      The boiler today proved once again that diving here can be like swimming in an aquarium. We entered the water with schools of Big Eye Trevally Jacks in the blue around the boiler and thousands of colourful Wrasse’s all around the top of the boiler. Dropping down and moving around the nooks and crannies are filled with lobsters, moray eels, hawk fish of all sizes and varieties, and an occasional octopus den. Moving deeper we found groups of Moorish idols feeding along the wall and Bluefin Trevally swimming just outside of us trying to figure out what we were…

  • Captain’s Log – Socorro Island, Baja California, Mexico–May 29, 2011

    After two great days of shark encounters at Roca Partida we traveled overnight last night 65 nautical miles to the largest of the Islas Revillagigedo, Socorro Island. Arriving here early this morning our first stop was the navy base at the south end of the island, where each trip we are boarded by the Mexican navy for a routine inspection to ensure all our paperwork is in order. After the inspection we headed to the west side of the island to our first divesite, Punta Tosca. Weather conditions were great today as we anchored in the large sheltered bay created…

    Everything seemed to come together to make this trip a truly wonderful experience.  The gorgeous weather, the great company of the guests and crew, and of course, the diving.  I don’t know how to describe the diving in a way that will justify the experience! Whale sharks, mantas, dolphins, false-killer whales, octopus, Galapogos sharks, Hammerhead sharks, Silky sharks…I could go on and on.  It really was a magical time at the Islas de Revillagigedo’s and all aboard the Nautilus were blessed with great dives, even me! San Benedicto, Roca Partida and Socorro left us all feeling very privileged. We departed…
