Every dive was perfect - we saw so much marine live every time, sharks every day, incredible number of fish, warm water - absolute beauty.” Beata Osiecka, from Warsaw Poland
Now for the trip highlights:
Manuelita Channel was incredible right off the bat – on one of our first dives there we encountered a HUGE female tiger shark that appeared to be pregnant, as well as a giant Pacific manta ray gliding through the channel.

Consistent with the last several months, Small Dos Amigos was full of hammerhead and Galapagos shark action. At Punta Maria we saw Galapagos sharks on the plateau and hammerheads out in the blue. Manuelita Outside also gave us many tiger shark sightings as well as hammerheads and sea turtles.

The south side of Dirty Rock was particularly active with hammerheads coming in close, as well as schooling in large quantities over our heads. Throughout the week this was one of our favorite spots to find hammerheads and galapagos sharks.

At Alcyone we saw hammerheads, Galapagos sharks and a large sea turtle.
Toward the end of the week we disembarked to enjoy the magic of Cocos Island topside. The weather was spectacular and we hiked up to get a sweeping view of the bay.

The crossings to and from Puntarenas were a little choppy but relatively mild for this time of year, and we enjoyed mostly sunny weather this expedition.
