Scuba Diving

Regarded as Costa Rica's foremost dive travel destination, Caño Island offers the quintessential underwater experience.  With 6,672 acres of marine habitat protected under the Costa Rican National Park system, this sanctuary is not only thriving with an impressive array of marine life, it also boasts a diverse and dramatic seascape.

Scuba enthusiasts will find a blue oasis at Cano Island. Fissures, pinnacles, canyons, and unique rock formations host huge schools of barracuda, tuna, snapper, and roosterfish.  At times the numbers of fish are so great that sunlight is actually blocked by an immense cloud of fish.  This stunning phenomena, an underwater eclipse, is just one of the features which lead dive travelers to designate Caño Island a world-class destination. 

This underwater kingdom not only hosts incredible parades of fish,  Cano Island also boasts some of the most impressive marine life in the world. If fortune has it, adventure divers may witness the awesome sea-flight of the elusive whale shark or humpback whale.  Porpoises and hammerheads are seen on many dives while  schools of rays and white tip reef sharks provide a dramatic floorshow.  Hundreds of tropicals are also sure to grant the adventure diver a sensory celebration.  With excellent visibility, between 40 and 90 feet, and water temperatures hovering between 75 to 82° F,  Caño Island Scuba diving is quite simply an outstanding adventure.
