When you go to the Archipelago of Revillagigedo you want to see manta rays. A marine biology student recorded 330 different mantas in the archipelago in 3 years.
It's the manta rays that make The Boiler, San Benedicto, Mexico, one of the world's most famous dive sites.
Mexico's Revillagigedo Islands are a group of four volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean.
As you arrive at San Benedicto in the Revillagigedo Islands, Silky sharks (Carcharhinus falciformis) come in to circle the boat.
The Silky shark (Carcharhinus falciformis) is one of the most common sharks at the Revillagigedo Islands.
Diving with Demoiselles
Few people but New Zealand scuba divers will understand my fascination with a slightly boring silver fish with two white spots. Those who've been completely immersed in a school of Demoiselles, surrounded in all directions, fish so close you could cradle them in your hands, will get it.
Remembering the summer of stingrays
Every summer short-tailed stingrays gather at the Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve off the Tutukaka Coast of northern New Zealand. Last summer, January 2018, was a one in 15 years event.
