We brought our 11 year old snorkeling and she had a great time, the water is warm, and you can see lots of sealife without a strong current. The visibility wasn’t super I would say, but we did see a sea turtle, others saw reef...More

We took a snorkeling tour with Rebecca and saw lots of underwater wildlife. This protected reef is beautiful and an ideal place to snorkel or dive

We visited this as part of our stay at Aquila de Osa. It is the place where all the snorkelling/diving trips land before starting the activities. Be aware there are no bathroom facilities on the island.

We went to Cano Island with Piccolina tours. On the way we saw some dolphins jumping out of the water. Though you won't be the only one snorkelling at Cano Island it is still quite rewarding to go there. During the snorkelling you'll wear a...More

Not to be missed even as someone who is not a strong and accomplished snorkeler. The trip usually involves a boat trip to Cano Island. A first Snorkel and then a visit to the Island Beach and visitor Centre followed by a second Snorkelling session....More
