Cocos Island (costa rica) Dive Holidays
A shark lover’s paradise
Tailor-made Cocos Island Diving Holidays
Cocos Island diving holidays are ideal for shark lovers: schooling hammerheads, several shark varieties and a whole lot more. No wonder Cocos island diving holidays inspired Michael Crichton’s’ novel ‘Jurassic Park’.
The waters around Cocos Island attract prehistoric scalloped hammerheads in their hundreds. It’s the promise of these, that makes the 36 hour boat journey from Costa Rica worth every moment! Waking each morning to the beauty of this remote island with its history steeped in tales of pirates is the stuff that dreams are made of.
To get to Cocos you fly in to San Jose, Costa Rica. Choose from flying via the United States with a choice of airlines or via Europe with Iberia. Flight time is approximately 14 hours from London.
Transfers from San Jose to Puntarenas to meet the boat take approximately 1.5 hours and the crossing to Cocos Island takes approximately 36 hours.
