Get 2 dives at Caño Island
Home to over 70 species of fish, whales, dolphins, turtles and other fascinating underwater marine life, “La Reserva Biológica Isla del Caño”, is an underwater paradise. Set far enough offshore that it sits within a huge Pacific Ocean current, amazing marine creatures from near and far live in or pass through the reserve during their seasonal migrations.
The variety of Costa Rican sea creatures that can be seen when you dive or snorkel here is truly breathtaking. Once you have completed all your classwork and confined dives, you will join your instructor for two dives at Caño Island. The trip to Caño Island starts early in the morning and returns in the late afternoon. But is worth every minute, as you get to see the beautiful coastline on the way there and back, as well as the spectacular Costa Rica marine life once you dive beneath the waves. There is no better place to spark a love of scuba diving than Isla del Caño.
This experience takes at least a day to complete and requires no previous diving experience. However, the students should have at the very minimum, basic swimming skills as well as be in reasonable health
