CANO ISLAND SNORKELING
Meet at Drake Bay
At 7:30 a.m., the whole group will meet and we will take the boat to Cano Island. If we are lucky, during the 45-minute sailing trip, we may see dolphins. In addition, if we take the tour from June to September or from December to April, we may even see humpback whales. The guide will give the necessary indications to enjoy snorkeling in this paradise, ensuring that even the most novice divers feel safe and use the equipment correctly to have the most fun.
Let's go diving!
Fins, snorkel and mask, everything ready, let's start! 🤿 To make diving easier you can use the lifejacket, so you will float effortlessly while discovering all the marine life. There are 9 dive sites on the island, of which the guide will choose the most suitable for snorkelling, with the shallowest depth and best visibility. Did you know that the waters are so clear that there are up to 24 metres of visibility? That means that you will be able to see even the animals that live on the seabed. After 45 minutes, we will go out to rest on the beach of Isla del Cano, the team will have prepared tropical fruits, fresh water and some snacks for you to recover your energy before the second dive. Back in the water to enjoy the best snorkelling in Costa Rica, you'll see seahorses, starfish, schools of fish, octopus...the list is long!
San Josecito beach and Drake Bay
If the weather is good and the schedule allows it, we will stop at Playa San Josecito to relax, sunbathe and enjoy one of the best beaches in Drake Bay. We will take the boat again to return to Agujitas de Drake, where we will have lunch together and put an end to this wonderful experience around 1:30 p.m.
