Revillagigedo Archipelago National Park
The Archipelago of Revillagigedo is one of the most important and internationally recognized diving sites in Mexico, since it offers the best of the Pacific pelagic marine life: the main attraction is the giant mantas (Manta birostris), there is always the possibility to see whales, dolphins, turtles and of course: up to 7 different species of sharks (silky, silvertip, white reef tips, galapagos, tiger, hammerhead and whale shark). It is located between 720 and 970 km west of the Manzanillo coast and belongs to the state of Colima. Due to its remoteness from the coast, the best way to visit this area is through Liveaboards. The Revillagigedo Islands are considered by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. It is conformed in turn by several islands; Carrión Island, San Benedicto Island, Socorro Island, and an islet called Roca Partida.
Whether for commercial or biological interest, the islands have always had a great number of visitors: explorers, scientists, athletes, documentary makers. Its formation of volcanic origin gives a natural wealth to the soil and subsoil. Socorro Island, is home to the Evermann volcano, which still expels sulfur and emanates thermal waters rich in minerals.
On this occasion we invite you to join us aboard the Cantamar Southern Sport liveaboard, where we will tour Isla Socorro, San Benedicto and Roca Partida. We hope to do 3 daily dives of 60 min. or more, or 4 dives of 50 min. or less, since the surface time depends on the duration and depth of the dive.
