These trip could be most memorable lifetime diving experience. It offers some of the most spectacular opportunities to view and photograph the incredible marine biodiversity of the East Pacific.
Cocos Island National Park and World Heritage site is located 530 km southwest of Costa Rica’s mainland.
Known as one of the world’s most incredible diving destinations, it is famous for its large populations of scalloped hammerhead and white tip reef sharks, and boasts a number of endemic fish that occur nowhere else on the planet. Hammerheads are easily viewed at close range at “cleaning stations,” and inquisitive green turtles commonly approach our dive teams, offering fantastic photographic opportunities and facilitating tagging studies.
Other regularly observed species include Galapagos sharks, black tip sharks, silky sharks, marbled rays, eagle rays and bottlenose dolphins. The special treat of any diving expedition–whale sharks–are also occasionally observed. Endless schools of jacks also swarm the island.
