Resting Sharks of Revillagigedo Archipelago

Off the Pacific coast of Mexico, the Revillagigedo Islands host many species of shark.

Whitetip Reef Sharks are often found huddled together along ocean walls. Scientist believe this might provide protection from larger predators.

The sharks are unbothered by Lobster and/or human presence as they rest.

On this dive, we observed around 20 to 30 sharks resting on ledges along ocean pinnacle walls.


Here’s a link to my review of the Nautilus Explorer Liveaboard.

Additional underwater images from Mexico can be found here.
