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.
Expedition participants will dive among schooling hammerheads, several species of sea turtles, and schools of thousands of fish, as they support conservation efforts directly at the site.
Participate in three fantastic dives each day, which is enhanced through work with Turtle Island Restoration Network biologists to study sea turtles, and census and track sharks. Participants will be able to assist with various levels of research depending on experience.
Enjoy engaging conservation lectures and socializing with fellow ocean lovers every evening. For more information, please email email@example.com
