Tour Itinerary.

Day 1: You must arrive at least one day prior to the boat departure date. Upon arrival to San José, we can have transportation waiting for you for the cost of 10-20 USD or you can take a taxi to your hotel. There are always taxis available at the airport, even minivans for those of you who carry a lot of gear. We can also recommend and arrange accommodations for hotels in San José. Please note that we do not pick up from all San Jose hotels. The evening before boat departure, our representative will fax you to confirm your pick up time the next day. The evening is at your leisure. Air transport, airport transfers, hotel nights and meals before and after the cruise are not included in the charter.

Day 2: The following day, generally between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. we pick up from certain hotels and transfer everybody by bus to Puntarenas where you will board the vessel. The drive takes about 2.5 hours, and gives you a chance to view the lush forest and rich farmland of the region. Due to occasional low tides our boats may need to depart from the pier earlier in the day. Should this occur, you will be transferred by skiff to the vessel. When all passengers have arrived on board, the vessel will take a 32-36 hour cruise out to Cocos Island.

Day 3: A travel day. There will be time to arrange dive and camera gear as well as enjoy the Pacific and the sunshine. Also, the group of incredibly experienced divers provides plenty of stories to pass the time. There are videos and the experience of the Captain and crew to help you get excited for the diving as if you need them. In addition, you may want to take this time to take one of our technical diving courses.

Days 4-8: Spent diving the pinnacles around the perimeter of Cocos Island. Divers usually average three dives per day at depths of 60-100 feet or more. This, of course, is what the whole trip is about.

Day 9: Make the last 3 dives before the cruise back to Costa Rica and reality!

Day 10: All day to discuss the diving and to compare your adventures!

Day 11: Arrival to Puntarenas. Immediately after breakfast you will be transported back to San Jose. We strongly recommend staying one more night on land, before flying out, in case of any unforeseen delays.

Notes: Optional tours - While you are here in Costa Rica it is certainly worth the extra time to visit other aspects of the country that truly make it a natural wonderland. Very active volcanoes, white water rafting, mountain biking, some of the most pristine jungles in the world, coffee plantations, horseback riding, visits to craft centers, and of course, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are among the activities and destinations available in the country. We would be happy to arrange one day tours or longer trips to more remote areas at the client´s request. Recommended Costa Rican companies will operate these tours.

- Ground transportation San Jose - Puntarenas and return
- 11-day, 10-night cruise with all meals and non-alcoholic drinks
- Dive master service
- Seven full days of action-packed diving with three to four dives per day (including nitrox fills, tanks and weights).

Price Excludes:
- National Park Fee: total 245 USD: 35 USD per day, on a 10-night trip there are 7 diving days spent at the Cocos Island Marine Conservation Area.
