Why are the Socorro Islands in the Archipelago Revillagigedo considered to be among the top diving destinations in the world? The reason is simple. Regardless of whether you are exploring below the surface at El Canyon, the Boiler, Punta Tosca, or Roca Partida, you will never be short of amazing undersea creatures frolicking around you.

Our afternoon at the Boiler yesterday kicked ass. Several people said they counted at least 8 different Mantas! They were around for every dive for the entire dive! It was kind of difficult to leave and move on to our next site, this seemed like our best window for Roca Partida and we are still […]Read More

After leaving the main island Socorro, having some glorious Dolphins saluting us good bye, we anchor up at Roca Partida 7 hours later.
With the Sun rising creating a spectacular swirl of pink and orange, as we have our breakfast and dive briefing, still wiping the sleep out of our eyes.

It's not easy to describe Roca Partida; it just has to be experienced. The water is warm (80F), the visibility is great (80+ft) and these two facts are far from the best part.
The undersea life here is simply stunning. Today we saw 5 different species of sharks, abundant fish, a giant manta. It was a big day for me personally, as I saw my first hammerhead shark and my first whale shark. It was also my first dive with no bottom reference. We spent most of our […]Read More
Who knew that white tip sharks grade themselves by size? from small to big. From the Nautilus Explorer – Roca Partida
Arriving at 7AM to the Mexican Show on Roca was very welcoming to the boatload of Canadians made us feel right at home. Dropping into the blue with a dense school of jacks and trevally, interspersed with wahoo, puffers and oh yes, dozens of sharks!! White tips, silver tips, Galapagos, silky, hammerhead and apparently a […]Read More
