1. Introduction
After our trip to Bonaire in November of 2005, I once again vowed to postpone vacations in an effort to save annual leave and money.  This time we made it a year and a half before we utterly caved and booked a live-aboard trip to one of the more remote archipelagos in the Pacific--the Islas de Revillagigedo (Socorro Islands).  Returning four years after our first visit, we looked forward to diving the spectacular walls with a little more experience and the hopes of hearing and/or interacting with wintering humpback whales.
