UK-based diving holiday specialist, Regaldive, has just expanded its dive portfolio with the introduction of Cocos Island. A lush, uninhabited island resting 340 miles off Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, the rocky pinnacles surrounding Cocos are beacons for big animals and big action. The only way to visit the island for diving is by liveaboards, which operate year round.
The island is surrounded by deep waters populated by Whale Sharks, Schooling Hammerhead Sharks, White-tip Sharks, Tuna, Manta Rays & three species of Turtle. Dolphins are often seen and the odd whale, if you are lucky.
A distinctive and remote diving location, Cocos Island is ideal for the serious diver. Regaldive’s latest addition will no doubt be at the top of the ‘must dive’ lists in 2016.
New Cocos Island Liveaboards
Regaldive has added three Cocos Island Liveaboards to its programme:
- Sea Hunter: 35m liveaboard offering comfort and convenience. Accommodation for up to 20 passengers in 10 guest cabins with private bathrooms. A superbly stable and robust craft, Sea Hunter is formerly a commercial dive-support vessel, built to serve the oil industry in the Gulf of Mexico. The Sea Hunter is considered by many as the paramount, purpose-built live aboard vessel operating in the area.
- Okeanos Aggressor I: 33m liveaboard providing comfortable accommodation for
22 guests in 9 Deluxe Staterooms and 1 Quad Cabin.
- Okeanos Aggressor II (formerly Wind Dancer): 36m liveaboard accommodating
22 guests in 8 double/twin stateroom cabins, 2 luxurious suites and 1 Master Stateroom.
