San Benedicto is one of four islands in the Revillagigedos Archipelago, more commonly called the Socorro Islands. This area attracts nature enthusiasts and scuba divers because the the numerous large animal encounters experienced at dive sites like "The Boiler" and "The Canyon". Giant Pacific Mantas congregate here because it is a cleaning station. Its one of the few places in the world where you can come eye-to-eye with these amazing creatures in crystal clear ocean water. It can only be reached by boat. Scuba divers visit this area when weather permits from November through May. This is done by way of Cabo San Lucas aboard the luxury live-aboard Solmar V.
