Scuba Diving Cocos Island, Costa Rica
Dive Site: Isla Manuelita
Location: Cocos Island, Costa Rica
Description: Reef dive / blue water shark dive
Depth: 5 - 35 metres (15 - 115 feet)
Visibility: 15 - 20 metres (50 - 65 feet)
This dive involves being dropped at the same surface location as with Manuelita Channel, but heading in a clockwise direction instead. In my opinion it was so much better than diving in the other direction. Whether it would always be probably very much depends on the day and luck of the draw. As before we got to the Manuelita cleaning station but there were no hammerheads, so I amused myself for five minutes watching a lovely spotted boxfish. We drifted off about 15 minutes into the dive and saw turtles, wahoo and a huge shoal of jacks that was never ending - there were literally thousands of them. On another dive we saw a manta ray here as well as eagle rays and marble rays and there was a black tip off in the distance.
