The Revillagigedo Islands, also known as Socorro, are four islands in the Mexican Pacific Ocean. Departing from Cabo San Lucas, dive operators will cross the Pacific to the southwest for a 24 hour period to reach this archipelago. Socorro is definitely a bucket-list destination where one can encounter big animals – pelagic mantas, dolphins, schooling hammerheads, silkie sharks, white tip reef sharks, gray tip reef sharks, schools of tuna, schools of jacks, and depending on the season, you might get lucky enough to encounter whale sharks and humpback whales.

This marine protected area has recently been added to the UNESCO World Heritage list, as an important area deserving protections for future generations to experience and enjoy.
