Islas Revillagigedos

The famous Islas Revillagigedos is a group of four volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean with a unique ecosystem. They are particularly famous for encounters with the Giant Pacific Manta Rays and other big marine life, such as Galapagos Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, (less often) Tiger Sharks and Silky Sharks. The islands are 385km (240 miles) from Cabo San Lucas, taking 24 hours to reach, so the Islas Revillagigedos are a typical liveaboard destination.

The four islands are: San Benedicto, Socorro, Roca Partida and Clarión.  They have much in common with Galapagos and therefore they are also known as the “Mexican Galapagos Islands”. Note that this destination is only suitable for experienced divers, mainly due to the depth, open-ocean situation and the current. Of course it is possible to have a bad day and not come across any of the marine life just described.
