Socorro Island at Revillagigedo
Known worldwide as the “Mexican Galapagos” Socorro Island is the kind of place where anything can happen at any time. This group of volcanic islands attract large concentrations of fish, sharks and the biggest mantas you can ever dream with. Socorro island is found approximately 240 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, making it a remote location where only long range boats such as the M/Y Cassiopeia and the M/V Southern Sport can go. This fact, along with the preservation efforts of the Mexican Navy base on site, makes it a dream place for divers from all over the globe. Best season November-May.
On November 17th, 2016 these islands were declared by UNESCO as Natural Heritage of Humanity. On November 25th, 2017 this place got declared as Mexico's National Park, turning it into the biggest National Marine Park in the world.
We frequently encounter several species of shark including the scalloped hammerhead. silvertip, Galapagos, tiger, whitetip reef, and during the months of November and December, whale sharks. Additionaly, between February and April we have the opportunity to see humpback whales. And if that is not enough, Socorro is one of the best places on earth to see giant Pacific manta rays, and let's not forget the dolphins and bigs schools of fish.
Socorro Island, along with San Benedicto Island and Roca Partida at Revillagigedo Archipelago, are a divers paradise.
Giant mantas, sharks, cetaceans and massive schools of fish await you...
