We saw a lot of fishes, a shark and 3 turtles. You need a good visivility, I advice you to ask before to pay.

You will see sharks, rays, dolphins - yes everything! If you can opt for an early morning adventure where you are allowed several times into the water you will see more. Sunscreen is NOT enough - wear an SPF shirt - really. By the end...More

The visibility was about 30 feet horizontally and 50 feet vertically, which is likely a product of the rains in the rainy season. The current was stong in places and you have to be a strong diver to not get thrust into the pinnacles and...More

Stunning island surround by coral reefs full of aquatic life. Whales breaching close to shore and hermit crabs the size of a fist! Stunning place. We will be back!

Enjoyed a good day snorkeling at Cano Is. Saw many colorful tropical fish, some other larger varieties, and several turtles. The water was a comfortable temperature. Almost no coral. A highlight was an extended viewing of a large playful group of dolphins on the return...More

This beautiful island is not to be missed! On the 45-minute boat ride from our hotel, we saw a baby humpback whale practicing her breaching skills! From then on, the amount and variety of wildlife were stunning. I’m not a strong swimmer, but the snorkeling...More

Hopefully you’ll get Carol as your guide, an absolute sweetheart local who knows her stuff. Take your rain gear during low season, the boat ride out to the island is an adventure in and of itself.

My understanding is that the whale sharks and humpbacks will be gone by January. You will see rays and small white tip sharks.
