Socorro Islands

Where: The Revillagigedo Islands (also Revillagigedo Archipelago) are a group of four volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, known for their unique ecosystem. The islands are home to many endemic plant and animal species.  Socorro island is the most diverse in flora, fauna, and topography. The islands lie 250 miles off Baja Mexico’s southern shore. Guests fly into San Jose del Cabo (airport code SJD).  We dive the islands of San Benedicto, Socorro, and Roca Partida.  Our season is November through the end of May.
When: Dec 27, 2023 – Jan 05, 2024

Animals include schooling hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, friendly bottlenose dolphins, silky sharks, Galapagos sharks, clouds of jacks and barracuda, tuna, wahoo, oceanic white tip sharks, whale sharks, and manta rays. Manta Rays are the claim to fame for Socorro Islands. The island where they predominately congregate is San Benedicto. The magical dive site, “The Boiler” is a submerged sea mount and cleaning station. More than a half dozen mantas frequent this pinnacle regularly. The mantas in the Revillagigedo Islands are friendly and enjoy the presence of humans. This is truly an exceptional place to experience the manta magic. Whale sharks may be seen during November, December, and May. We always make an extra special dinner on New Year’s Eve along with champagne and decorations.
