Dive with Hammerhead Sharks in Costa Rica

Cocos Islands, Costa Rica

Visibility: 10-15m (33-50ft)

Cocos Islands, located approximately 400km southwest of Costa Rica, can only be accessed as a live aboard trip and is recommended for the more experienced diver. These islands are home to 20 incredible dive sites ranging from underwater mountains to coral gardens. In 1978 the Costa Rican government declared Cocos Islands a marine national park thus allowing sea life to grow and thrive.

Expect to encounter multiple shark species; tiger, blacktip, silvertip, guitar, silky, and reef sharks. But what really attracts divers to this spot are the schools of hundreds of scallop hammerhead sharks. August and September are the most popular months.
