Revillagigedo Islands

I was thinking of stopping at Isla Soccoro on passage from Sea of Cortez to Marquesas next spring before cyclone season. Anyone have any experience with this?

Re: Revillagigedo Islands

Adventure Adrift has a few videos of their trip to the islands. Here's one of the videos. It looks like an amazing place to visit.

Re: Revillagigedo Islands

check with mexico because new laws mean it could require permit to anchor there ..is a preserve now.... laws passed last year. seems mexico is active in preservation of species that are disappearing.
conapesca should have info. they are the fishing license folks.

Re: Revillagigedo Islands

When I was there with a charter dive boat out of Cabo, we were boarded by Mexican military, which was typical according to the company.

We spent part of two seasons (5-6 weeks each) in the Revillagigdeo's a few years back and it was one of the top marine experiences we have had. The diving is one of the 10 best spots in the world. Everything is big under the water! The friendly mantas are unbelievable. You are NOT allowed ashore on either island.

Depending on where you stop(Socorro) there is a good chance you will be boarded by the Mexican Navy to inspect your permit. They really frown on vessels stopping without a permit. San Beneditico less chance of being boarded but could still happen

We wrote a short cruisers guide on Socorro and San Beneditico that is way out of date but you may find a couple useful tidbits to plan your trip.
Located - "Other Good Stuff' " Cruising Guide to Revillagigedo Islands"

Also we have written a number of passage notes on our stay out there
Passage Notes #29, #30, #31, #37, #38

Safe sailing and see you in French Polynesia!!
