Scuba divers from all over the world travel to the Revillagigedo Archipelago in the Pacific Ocean to see big animals like Manta Rays, Sharks, Whales, etc. While these large creatures are very exciting to observe and the main attraction – they are not always swimming around divers.
This underwater video compiles some of the smaller fish we observed during our dives while we waited patiently for larger animals. We were graced by large schools of fish and striking creatures found along ledges of sea mountains.
The Revillagigedo Archipelago is also referred to as the Socorro Islands. The group of islands are located about 280 miles southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Scuba divers must travel by liveaboard to reach the islands. I traveled on the Nautilus Explorer.
