The Giant Manta Rays of
Revillagegidos
Trip Report
joe r manta

I just got back from an awesome trip on the Solmar to the Revillagegidos. After a short stay in Cabo San Lucas I departed on April 20th and just got back last Saturday! I am still working on the videos. They will be up on the new site very soon. We will be heading back there next April. If you ever wanted a chance to dive with Sharks, Mantas and Humpbacks this is a MUST DO trip!
Lawrence Groth CEO

The Revillagigedos archipelago is located approximately 270 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It is often referred to as the Mexican Galapagos. The main island called Socorro is usually the name most people identify with the Revillagigedos . It is a tough name for most non Spanish speaking gringos, but when properly pronounced it sounds like "Re-via-hee-hay-dohs". In my opinion the Revillagigedos is the best location in the world to dive with Giant Manta Rays.


The Manta Ray is one of if not the most graceful creature in the sea. The Manta Ray can also grow quite large with wingspans reaching over 20 feet. The Manta Rays also have the largest brain of all fish species.


They are very social creatures and seem to actually enjoy interacting with divers. Being a plankton feeder the Manta ray is absolutely harmless to humans and also has no real predators other than man.


Isla San Benedicto is a volcanic island with its most recent eruption occurring in 1952. . We encountered hammerheads, tiger shark, white tip reef sharks, dolphin, and multiple Mantas on nearly every dive. This can also be a great spot to encounter whale sharks.


Roca Partida (Parted Rock) is not so much of an island and rather just a big rock in the middle of nowhere. This unique dive site has everything. You can see Hammerheads, Dolphin, Manta Ray, several species of sharks and even Humpback Whales!


The marine life here is so abundant that you can do 8 dives in 2 days and see different animal action on each dive. You can see dolphin and hammerhead sharks on one dive and then see Mantas and Humpbacks on the next. You never know what you are going to get. You just know it is going to be good!


Isla Socorro is the largest island in the Revillagigedos. Isla Socorro is most famous for its Humpback whales. During whale season November to April there is a very large population of Humpbacks here.


The Mexican navy has a rather prominent base on the island and all vessels visiting the islands must stop and check in to show permits and register. This can take an hour or two and shortens one dive day but it is just one of the ways the islands stay protected and Mexico keeps tabs on who is there and what they are doing. The Revillagigedos is a marine reserve and fishing both commercial and sport has been banned there for about 5 years now.
