The Revillagigedo Archipelago

Better known as the Socorro Islands, the archipelago is located in the eastern Pacific Ocean approximately 250 nautical miles south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – at the tip of the Baja peninsula. These islands have been compared to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador or Cocos Island in Costa Rica because of the big animal encounters they provide. The Revillagigedos Islands consist of 4 islands – San Benedicto Island, Socorro Island, Roca Partida and Clarion. They are wild, remote and unpredictable.

Giant mantas, humpback whales, playful dolphins, tuna, over 7 shark species plus, on occasion orcas give you the best animal diving on earth!

Seasons & Conditions

The Revillagigedo Islands trips are only available November through June due to weather conditions. During all these months, giant mantas, playful bottlenose dolphins and sharks are plentiful. The water temps are 75F – 80F in November, December, and sometimes into January and also in late April, May and June.

In mid-January, February, March and the beginning of April the water varies between around 70F – 74F. The humpback whales visit Socorro during these cooler water months. You can hear these gentle giants singing on almost every dive and as previously mentioned, underwater encounters with these whales are increasing every year.
