We wanted a trip with lots of sharks and guaranteed Mantas. We chose to go with Equator diving based near Manchester on the live aboard Valentina. The journey there was long to say the least from Manchester to Heathrow onto Dallas Fort Worth then to San Jose del Cabo. Boarded Valentina then a 36 hour sail out to San Benedicto one of three islands we dived out of the four in the Revillagigedos Archipelago. The diving did not disappoint with clear warm seas and an abundance of life including Whitetip reef sharks, Hammerheads, Silkies and the Mantas we wanted to see. We stayed for 2 days diving then sailed overnight to Socorro, again the diving was excellent Mantas, Galapagos sharks whitetips. Whilst there you have to pay a visit to the naval base for your passports to be checked. We then sailed to Roca Partida the smallest of the island and at first glance you wonder why your staying here for 2 days diving but once in the water you can see why. The life underwater is unbelievable, Whitetip reef sharks gather in the hollows and crevices in there dozens, Galapagos and Silkies swim around you, Silvertips seem to gather together and Mantas seem to just circle you as you complete your safety stop. Massive shoals of fish gather just off the rock, Morays and some of the biggest lobsters you’ll see hide amongst the cracks. The whole experience was excellent, the crew of the Valentina all went out of there way to help with kit and anything you needed and the food was first class.

Socorro Island is a world away in the world. The Revillagigedo Archipelago is in the middle of the pacific ocean with the closest port 250 miles away. I experienced Southern Sport, a nice liveaboard yacht owned by Cantamar, on cabin 8. It was not the most luxurious experience like one of their suites, yet I was on the way to the most amazing diving trip in my life. All the crew, from the Captain to the cook, Paloma who is fantastic had excellent service for everyone onboard. Reservations were easy on their site and I even got special pricing. The ride of Southern Sport was very smooth for all the sailing which took like 18 hours for getting there. Onboard service was nice with fantastic meals, movies and even a nice sun deck where you can catch a ray. The main course, diving, is fantastic. Clear blue waters, macrofauna like dolphins and giant mantas, I was able to dive with lots species of sharks: galapagos, silkies, hammerheads, white tips, tigers, and of course the legendary dolphins in Roca Partida. Don't miss this fantastic attraction, it's only open from November thru May, check all the liveaboards that go there, see if you can get a good deal on the different websites. I recommend an Advanced Open Water certification specially because some sites have current, yet the planning of our dive guides made it very smooth. Getting the optional NITROX is also great for Socorro. Thank you to all the crew of the Southern Sport boat.

Bucket list dive destination and well worth its fame! I went on a 7 day liveaboard with a few friends onboard the Nautilus Belle Amie. In total we had 5 days of diving and had 18 dives total (typically they aim for 4 dives a day, except on the day they check in with the Navy when it's just 3 dives; we also had to miss out on the last planned dive of the trip due to poor weather conditions). The dive guides and crew were all fabulous and our stateroom (got a suite and would highly recommend it) was very comfy. The wildlife action was superb - saw lots of hammerheads, dolphins, playful mantas, reef sharks, etc. I'm still replaying the scenes from the dives. Absolutely unforgettable and would definitely recommend Socorro and the Nautilus Belle Amie to any diver!

We actually flew out and sailed back in gosh in 1995. We landed at the Mexico weather station and sailed back to La Paz with some diving in the Sea of Cortez on the way back. It was the best dive trip I've ever been on. The Manta rays were the best part. Not like the creepy night dive in Hawaii. The visibility was forever. We did a drift dive, a wall dive and just drop in and hang at 60 feet and wait for the mantas. You can't stay on land at least not back then so it's a live aboard. Highly highly recommend Revillagigedo Archipelago.

One can only dive the Revillagigedo Archipelago (aka Socorro although Socorro is just 1 of 4 islands in the archipelago), and even then you can only dive 3 around parts of 3 islands (Isla Socorro, Isla San Benedicto, and Roca Partida)unless on an extended liveaboard trip that makes the long journey to the 4th island. Either way, the diving here is truely amazing with very friendly giant Pacific Manta Rays that actaully swim to you, very playful dolphims that when in the area will again come to divers and interact, and great numbers and varieties of of sharks. Then, depending on the time of year and if luck is on your side, a chance to dive (not just snorkle) with Whale Sharks and Humpback Whales. While I love diving in Fiji and Palau, 2 of my all-time favorite places in the South Pacific, Socorro is my top "close-ish" dive destination.
