Socorro Seasons and Conditions

Seasons & Conditions

The Revillagigedos 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.

There is really no best time to dive these islands, the diving is unsurpassed through-out the season. For divers looking for adventure, wilderness diving and the opportunity to photograph or interact with some of the planet’s biggest creatures, these islands cannot be beat!

Video Trip Reports: To help our guests decide when to visit the amazing Socorro Islands, we started publishing 5 minute video trip reports of all our Socorro Islands adventures since March 2011. These are short, accurate reports using only footage from that particular trip with divemaster narration and guest comments. These videos are an excellent resource to view first hand what previous guests have experienced during the time of year you are contemplating visiting us. We believe the entire season from November through June is excellent and these reports show you why. We have archived these reports by season for easy access on our you tube channel at
