the island itself was just heaven, but the okeanos aggressor fleet boat is old, tired and not at all worth the money. There are other boats with far better facilities. the diving was spectacular, this isnt a trip for the faint hearted, its a long journey, 36hours both ways, the boat has a very small, cheap 28inch TV in a...

Cocos island had been a dream for many years before I finally went. The stuff off diver fairy tales. Unfortunately we were not that lucky. There was hammerheads, yes. On two dives we encountered big schools of fish. Night dives (we were allowed two) were spectacular as the white tip reef sharks hunt by the light of the divers' torches... More

Situated around 500km away from Puntarenas, is a 36 hours sailing trip (with good weather) and 30 hours back (aprox). Unless you do a diving trip (I went there with Okeanos Aggressor I ) or you go there as volunteer, I'm not sure you can go. Beautiful island (used for aerial views for Jurassic Park), with an amazing big animals... More

I visited Cocos Island for 10 days aboard the Okeanos Aggressor I. The crossing was pretty brutal, even the Costa Rican park rangers riding on the vessel got sea sick. There were just a handful of people who didn't get sick. I doubled up on Dramamine and was ok. There had recently been a freak hurricane and I wonder if... More

I visited Cocos Island aboard the Sea Hunter of the Undersea Hunter Group in September. It's understandable to me why divers revere this place. The diving is extraordinary. I was with one shipboard acquaintance who was visiting for the 5th time. The close views of Hammerhead and Galapagos sharks are hard to believe. At one cleaning station, hammerheads were passing...

We took the Okeanos Aggressor 11 May 28 of 2016. Our 36 hour trip was uneventful. This is our 6th Aggressor Liveaboard. The boat was somewhat in need of repair and some of the rooms lacked attention and cleanliness. We saw a number of amazing sharks. The currents were extremely strong, and some dives were more than challenging. Make sure... More

Diving Cocos National Park has been on my bucket list for 5 years now since first learning about it. We were very fortunate that our 36 hour crossing was smooth. Every dive is a warm deep dive and in current, most times in very STRONG current, not for the beginning diver. The panga drivers have eagle eyes; my dive buddy's... More
