Cocos Island, Costa Rica - Sea Hunter - August 31 - September 11, 2020
We’re thrilled to return to the famous island of sharks this year. Cocos is one of the most beautiful remote islands in the world and is home to some of the most action packed diving on the planet. From huge schools of hammerheads and jacks, to flying formations of marble rays or potential bait balls, the island of Cocos always delivers the greatest opportunity for natural wildlife displays. Berkley White - Cocos - One Dive, Two Hundred Hammerhead SharksRESERVE YOUR SPOT NOWBubble blowers and a handful of rebreathers Our Cocos trips always include a diverse group of people. The typical mix is a majority of traditional scuba divers and a small group of rebreather divers. While our rebreather divers take their life support practice very seriously, they are there to shoot and explore and not just talk tech all day long. It makes for a great people mix and learning experience for everyone. Maximizing every moment As with all our trips, we work with the diving staff to maximize every photo and video opportunity available. We have very specific dive sites and techniques planned for this trip. As our trip draws near, we work with the world class Undersea Hunter dive staff to customize our itinerary to match current conditions. We can promise our trip will deliver the best Cocos has to offer during our time there. Photo and Video Support On our way out to the island, we’ll give a brief presentation on our recommended diving and shooting techniques to help you avoid the pitfalls we experienced many years ago and get your head calibrated for shooting great images. Once on island, we will give group presentations or personalized help based on requests and group interest. Of course we can’t fix every gear failure in the field, but Berkley and his trusty tool kit will be by your side. Where is Cocos?How do I get there? It’s not Asia and an easy flight from US!!!
