A lush, green uninhabited island resting 600 km off Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.
Cocos Island is the largest uninhabited island in the world. To have the opportunity to dive and visit this unique paradise is a dream come true.
Rocky pinnacles surrounding Cocos are beacons for large pelagic animals, particularly schools of scalloped hammerhead sharks. White tip reef sharks, rays and mantas are abundant, as are schools of tuna, jack and snapper. Whales sharks, dolphins and turtles are frequently sighted.
Most of the action is between 15 and 30 metres with visibility in the 25-30 metre range.
Water temperatures average between 23 and 27 degrees Celsius, with cooler thermoclines. All diving around the Cocos Islands is drift diving. The diving can be challenging due to the island’s rugged topography and currents.
This trip is recommended for more experienced divers. May to October is considered the best time to dive at Cocos, but conditions are generally very good throughout the year.
