Fabulous Photos Friday: The Best of the Revillagigedos Archipelago

Fabulous Photos Friday: The Best of the Revillagigedos Archipelago

As I have said before, the Revillagigedos Archipelago is (so far!) the most exciting place I have ever dived. The big pelagic life is not only thrilling to see, but it is the only place I know of where Giant Mantas and Dolphins actually seek out humans for play. Mantas love diver’s bubbles, and dolphins like […]

Roca Partida is the most happening place in the islands. Roca Partida is a rock covered with birds and their guana, sticking up in the middle of the ocean. Beneath the sea are mantas, sharks, sharks and mantas. Oh, and dolphins. And fish. It is amazing. Since it is Friday, this will be a photo […]

Diving the Revillagigedoes: Punta Tosca

Diving the Revillagigedoes: Punta Tosca

Punta Tosca is a great dive site on the island of Socorro. It can become quite deep, so one really has to be conscious of depth. Sometimes, when you are playing with a dolphin or a manta, or watching sharks, you can forget your depth and look at your computer and say, “holy shit, I’m […]

And what are the Revillagigedo Islands, you ask? They consist of four volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, and they are beloved by divers because of the unique ecosystem which exists under the blue waters.

More Roca and Socorro

Well, we all voted to stay another day at Roca simply because there were so many sightings!  The dives were great, but getting to know the other divers was also wonderful, we particularly bonded with a young German couple, Chris and Dani.  They are both surgeons in Frankfurt, Germany.  Chris is a trauma surgeon, and […]
