December 7-15, 2025
Join us on an adventure to Socorro (Revillagigedo Islands, Mexico). Socorro island, located approximately 240 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is a world renowned diving destination in the pacific. The area is known for the “friendliest mantas”, bottlenose dolphins, whale sharks, and up to ten species of sharks and loads of fish. The area is very remote with a Mexican Navy base and was first explored for diving in the late 70’s, and continues to be a super popular spot for diving and marine interactions.
Our adventure begins in beautiful Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Feel free to arrive a few days early and enjoy relaxing in Cabo or the surrounding areas!
Dec 7, 2025: We'll meet at SeaCreatures in downtown Cabo in the late afternoon (exact time TBC) for check-in. Between 7-8pm the Nautilus Belle Amie crew will bring us and our gear to the boat for boarding. We'll settle into our cabins and begin our overnight cruise to Socorro. *Possible Backscatter photo and video workshop in the afternoon (TBC).
Dec 8, 2025: Relaxing day at sea as we continue traveling to the Revillagigedo Islands, with our first planned stop at San Benedicto Island by evening. During the day we’ll participate in safety briefings, unpack and set up dive gear, learn more about giant mantas, and enjoy cocktail hour and sunsets as we cruise.
Dec 9-13, 2025: Diving begins and continues for 5 days. Our focus will be on diving with the world’s “friendliest mantas'', bottlenose dolphins, up to ten species of sharks, and loads of fish. December is one of the best chances for whale shark encounters too. We’ll start off our diving at San Benedicto Island and make our way around the Revillagigedo Archipelago diving at favorite sites such as El Canyon, the Boiler, Red Rocks, Roca Partida, Cabo Pearse, Punta Tosca, and Roca O'neal. The plan is to average 4 dives a day, however the day we check-in at the local navy base will likely be 3 dives.
