San Benedicto Canyon

’El Canyon’ is located on the south end of San Benedicto Island within the famed Revillagigedo Islands. An amazing site that attracts large pelagics due to its depth and exposure to the open ocean. This is an advanced to expert level dive and can only be reached via liveaboard.

Expect to see a lot of large pelagics like the giant Pacific manta ray, schooling hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, silky sharks, and dolphins.
