It is not every day you get a chance to visit a veritable bucket list destination but this June fishinfocus is off to the mysterious Socorro islands. Several hundred miles off the Pacific Mexican coast, Socorro is most famous for the giant manta that swoop along the walls. But there is so much more. Huge schools of hammerheads, silkies and white tips are common as are other pelagic fish such as tuna. We have to thank the lovely guys at Scuba Travel and Solmar V for this incredible opportunity.
Essential camera kit for the trip? Taking the trusty Canon 60D and impressive Olympus OMD (both in Nauticam housings). This trip will also be a great chance to test out our new YSD1 Sea & Sea strobes – these strobes have had rave reviews so will be fab to get them in the water to see just how the performance is with wide angle and fish eye shots. We will be back on July 4th and hopefully have some awesome images to share.
