Ocean & Rainforest Adventures
Oceans and rainforest? What the heck kind of trip is that? Is it something new? YES! Both diving and experiencing Costa Rican rainforest and national parks, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet.
We have captains, cruise directors and divemasters with decades of experience in Costa Rica, and they tell us that there is more to the diving than Cocos, island of the sharks. Cocos is fantastic, of course, and we have only 5 berths still open on our August 30, 2023, 11-day, 10-night departure. But there is some diving on the Pacific side of the mainland that is legendary in a different way. Bat Island is famous for its bull sharks. The Catalina islands are close by and great diving. Caino island down south is known for sharks, rays and reef and pelagic fish. are going to encounter. We’ll have our eyes open, have drinks ready for sunset cocktail hour, and we have discounted these first trips to ensure that no matter what, they are a great value.
Summer is peak season with the best visibility, visiting humpback whales, dolphins, nesting turtles, and much more. The beauty of these trips is that each one is an adventure with a flexible itinerary and a super experienced captain who will maximize your experience based on the animals and weather.
But wait, there’s more! As well as diving, there will be ample opportunity for shoreside exploration guided by a local expert naturalist with a special focus on the Osa Peninsula, home to one of the richest tropical ecosystems anywhere including monkeys, lizards, parrots, toucans, hawks, sloths, iguanas and much much more. Kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming with our swimming coach, relaxing on pristine sand beaches or soaking it all in from your hot tub with a beverage of choice make this a dive experience unlike any other in Costa Rica. Precise itinerary dependent on our captain and naturalists assessment and optimization of animal sightings and weather.
