Quick Recap For Diving Socorro & the Revillagigedo Archipelago – TL:DR
Dive Season: November – June
Marine Life: Mantas, Sharks, Dolphins, & more!
Experience Level: Advanced Open Water or equivalent and at least 30 dives are recommended due to the deeper dives & currents.
Water Temperatures: Ranges from 22-27C / 70-80F through the season. The warmer temps (24-27C/75-80F) are usually seen in November, December, early January, May, and June)
Visibility: 30m/100ft is the norm. If the wind or swell is strong it can drop down to 15m/50ft.
Wetsuit: Depends on the month, but a 5mm is a safe bet for most divers. Recommend contacting the ship the week before you fly to check current temps.
Lens Choice: Fisheye & Wide Angle for underwater. Telephoto for topside.
Drone: Drones are allowed in the park, just keep an eye out for sea birds and stay away from the rocks.
Who To Dive With: Dive Ninja runs special trips every year that I actually guest host – so let’s go see some mantas! Otherwise Nautilus Liveaboards and Mexico Liveaboards are the 2 companies I’d recommend.
