A liveaboard diving destination for eager divers of hammerhead sharks
Cocos Island is one of the best 10 scuba diving spots in the world according with PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) and a "must do" according to diving experts. The abyssal waters of Cocos Island homes numerous pelagic species as wahoo, tuna, billfish… But the highlight of this island, Costa Rican National Park since 1978 and World Heritage Site since 1997, are the dive encounters with whale sharks, shark and dolphin action, mantas squadrons and hammerhead sharks formations.
Cocos is an uninhabited island of the tropical eastern Pacific located 340 miles (550 km) south west of Costa Rica and surrounded by deep waters with counter-currents. The extremely wet climate and oceanic character give Cocos an ecological character that is not shared with either the Galápagos Archipelago or any of the other islands (for example, Gorgona, Malpelo or Coiba) in this region of the world. The only way to dive Cocos Island is on a liveaboard trip and notwithstanding the exclusivity that a trip like this entails, flocks of divers are attracted every season by Cocos Island o “La Isla del Coco”.
All liveaboard charters pick up from San Jose hotels and transfer guests to the departure port of Puntarenas (a 2 hour ride), then guest should get San José's Juan Santamaría International Airport, we can help you get to the liveaboard and into your vacation as quick as possible. We are happy to help our guests in arranging their accommodations and local car transfers from Juan Santamaria international airport, or programming a land tour extension after cruise or a very special tour in Costa Rica for your significant other if she/he does not dive.
