Schooling hammerheads, countless white-tip sharks, mantas, tuna and even whale sharks call Cocos home. Weather permitting, Okeanos guests are shuttled ashore to hike through the jungles of Cocos and swim in her many waterfalls. All ten-day trips seven days of diving. The Okeanos sets off from the port town of Punteranas. Transfers from San Jose are provided on the day of departure. An overnight stay is required in San Jose prior to the charter.
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, Clipperton, Malpelo and Galapagos), 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.
