Costa Rica’s Best Diving

Caño Island, located off the coast near Corcovado is a unique diving trip that some have described as being similar to a mini Cocos Island dive.  Known for its crystal clear waters, Cano Island offers divers reefs from 16 feet to 100 feet, over 100 different species of fish, white tip reef sharks, sea turtles, ledges, caves, and one of the largest concentration of coral-building organisms in the pacific ocean of Costa Rica.  Visitors have rated Cano Island as having the best snorkeling and diving in Costa Rica!

Cano Island Dive Details

The journey to Cano Island embarks from Oceans Unlimited PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Dive Resort, located at Pez Vela, a 1st class state of the art marina in Quepos, just 45 minutes north of Bahia-Uvita along the beautiful coastal highway.  After meeting your dive experts at Oceans Unlimited, we depart safely from the marina and journey about 1 hour and 30 minutes to the unspoiled paradise of Cano Island.  Along the way we can spot pan tropical dolphins, rays, sea turtles, whales, and marine birds.  Upon arrival to Cano Island we dive 2 different sites with visibility that often exceeds 80 feet, all accompanied by a professional bilingual guide.  After checking out the local marine flora and fauna we visit the island for a picnic lunch. Guests are then free to enjoy the unspoiled Cano Island beach or an optional hike to see the famous stone spheres artefacts that are remnants of the pre-Colombian inhabitants of this island.  It is a journey that underlines a famous quote…
“The greatest resource of the ocean is not material but the boundless spring of inspiration and well-being we gain from her.” – Jaques Cousteau (1910-97)
