Reiserute

Cocos Island, Costa RicaSituated in the "Golden Triangle", 550 km off the mainland of Costa Rica, the converging nutrient-rich currents from nearby deep water attract multitudes of pelagic action to Cocos. The main attraction of Cocos Island diving is scalloped hammerhead sharks. You will witness wave after wave of huge groups of hammerheads, some numbering in their hundreds! But there are other regular shark species encounters too, most notably whitetip reef sharks and Galapagos, silky, tiger, blacktip, silvertip and guitar sharks. They are joined by many different species of rays: mobula, marble, manta and eagle rays swirling around you in search of cleaning stations.

Declared a marine national park by the Costa Rican government in 1978, the Isla del Coco is a large uprising of volcanic seamounts covered with untamed and uninhabited tropical rainforest featured in breathtaking scenes in the movie 'Jurassic Park'. The eco-system has been largely untouched by humans, offering us a rare glimpse into a world where nature reigns supreme, allowing the marine and island creatures to interact undisturbed and thrive in the process.

Where is Cocos Island?
Cocos Island, located 600 km (approximately 320 nautical miles) off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, is one of the most beautiful jewels in the Costa Rican National Park system. Of the principal islands of the Eastern Tropical Pacific, Cocos Island is the largest uninhabited island in the world and the only one that receives sufficient rainfall to support a tropical rain forest. The isolated environmental conditions of the island are home to a high number of endemic fish and plants. Cocos is also well known as being a favorite stopping point for pirates dating back to the 1500’s.

Diving

The primary attractions in Cocos are the large pelagics, i.e. hammerhead sharks, rays, mantas, turtles, and enormous schools of fish. Occasionally, there are sightings of whale sharks, marlin, and Bottle-Nosed dolphin. The bottom of the ocean floor at Cocos Island is volcanic rock. Most of the action is between 50 100 feet with visibility in the 80-100 feet range. The best diving in the waters surrounding Cocos is done from dinghies. You can make 4 dives a day: 3 scheduled dinghy dives and an optional night dive. Night diving is offered three nights due to new regulations.
