About this program

Cocos Island National Park, located off the coast of Costa Rica, is internationally revered for its diverse and rare marine life and was named the best place to dive with sharks by CNN. The World Heritage site is home to many species that are under threat due to illegal fishing practices which you can help counter.

Dive into the waters with renowned conservationists and come face to face with different species of sea turtles, several species of sharks, and be swarmed by great schools of fish. Your efforts will directly impact the conservation project and help protect the diverse yet delicate underwater ecosystem.
