Cocos Island – October 2020 – 4 Berths Remaining!

Cocos Island is one of THE places in the world to see Hammerhead sharks and this trip has been scheduled to go there to give us the greatest opportunity to see large numbers of sharks schooling in the blue, which also means large numbers coming in to be cleaned on the reef where you can see them up close and personal. In addition to Hammerheads there is a very good chance of seeing Tiger, Whaleshark, Galapagos, Silky sharks, along with humungous schools of Bigeye Trevally and Snappers.

This is proper adventure diving where very few people have been and Nature most definitely has the upper hand. With only 3 boats allowed to be in Cocos island at any time, it will just be us on the dives.

Aggressor Okeanos 1 will be our home for 10 nights. Departing from Puntarenas in the afternoon of 8 October 2020, we will sail for 36 hours to Cocos Island. Saturday 10 October 2020 is when the first of 7 dive days begins and the fun starts! Okeanos 1 accommodates 22 divers, split into 2 groups, we will have our own panga boat to go off to the dive sites. Weíll make 3 dives per day, with plenty of surface interval between dives to help keep things safe, after all this is a long way from a chamber if one is needed. Cabins are all ensuite, with bunk bed arrangement in the State cabins and 4 bunk beds in the
Quad cabin. Meals and food are plentiful with light breakfast, breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner served every day, with a wide range of foods being served, you wonít go hungry. On the last day there will only be 2 dives, then the long sail back to the mainland begins. This time of year is rainy season, so it could be a bumpy journey to and from Cocos Island, but this is prime season
for the Hammerheads, you wonít get much of a suntan, but expect plenty of shark action!
