COCOS ISLAND DIVING CONDITIONS
You will be diving in water that averages 72 - 82°F with cool thermoclines. Most guests make as many as 3-4 dives each day (night diving is currently not offered), so some sort of protection is needed. A 3-5mm wetsuit is recommended year round. The primary attractions in Cocos are the large pelagices, i.e. hammerhead sharks, rays, mantas, turtles, and enormous schools of fish. Occasionally, there are sightings of whale sharks, marlin, and Bottle-Nosed. 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. All diving is from pangas. You can make up to 4 dives a day: night diving is currently not offered. The approximate 36- hour cruise to the island, and return cruise 28-32 hours, can be uncomfortable to some. We recommend taking precautions for motion sickness. Beginner divers may consider Cocos Island diving slightly difficult due to its ruggedness and currents. This trip is not recommended to new divers or handicapped divers.
