Costa Rica which means ‘rich coast’, sits between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean in South America. The waters around Costa Rica are fantastic for diving, with the very best liveaboard diving centred around the remote islands of Cocos and Caño. The islands are uninhabited, except for the National Park rangers who stay to look after the islands’ protected flora and fauna. Diving in these areas is therefore possible only from a diving liveaboard. Due to the distance from the mainland, diving safaris to Cocos and Caño have an itinerary of around 8 to 10 days.
For comfort and stability, the Sea Hunter, Undersea Hunter and Argo are perfect. All three are former commercial diving boats which have been customised as liveaboards. These diving boats are perfect for longer passages and have large rear platforms for easy dive entry. The Okeanos Aggressor I and II also offer a high level of comfort on their diving cruise with air-conditioned, ensuite cabins. The crew also provide warm towels and fresh fruit after each dive.
