Great snorkeling for the area
Apr 2021 • Solo
I tried to go into this with low expectations as this was only the second time I was snorkeling. The first time was at the Great Barrier Reef so it didn't feel fair to use that as a standard to rate this place. The snorkeling was good and I enjoying swimming with the fish and turtles.

A MUST
Apr 2021
An amazing array of wildlife. We have visited the island often and every time we see something amazing and worth a David Attenborough documentary - false killer whales, humpback whales, feeding frenzies, huge schools of barracudas, hawksbill turtles, manta, sharks, enormous sting rays. Just amazing and shows what a healthy ocean should look like when protected. #30x30

Sharks, turtles and rays
Apr 2021
Great snorkel trip. Saw dolphins and birds eating needle fish and Olive Ridley turtles eating jellyfish, and that was just the boat ride out! Clear water, lots of white tip reef sharks, a moray eel, more turtles, and devil rays, and all the tropical fish you could want.

I actually cried in my mask & talked to the fish. I haven't seen such a variety & quantity in the last 45 years.

Excellent diving spot. White tip sharks.
Feb 2021 • Couples
We went with Osa Divers and they were extremely professional. We met at 7am and it took us 45 mins to arrive at the dive spot. We saw sharks in each dive. My wife chose to snorkel and she also saw a shark, a turtle and lots of fish. Loved the dive and our dive master Eric was incredible. Had huge passions for diving and sea life. On the way back we saw dolphins which was incredible. The crew also were looking for humpback whales but we were not able to see one.

We did a tour to the Island from the Jaguars Jungle Lodge and it was incredible! We saw sharks rays, big snapper, and so much more. Our kids loved it!

Awesome diving spot
Jan 2021 • Solo
You don't come to cano Island for colorful reefs. You come here for wildlife. And you see wildlife. I did four dives and saw sharks every single time. Also I saw mantas, puffer fish, turtles and much much. Maybe I was a little lucky, but according to other people I wasn't even that lucky. This spot keeps up to the promises.

Would be better pre-Covid
Dec 2020 • Couples
The boat ride out here is fun. We saw a ton of dolphins. The water was a little rough. Dramamine helped me out. The visibility was not good, but we saw some bright fish. Due to Covid restrictions, the tour groups can not go on the island. So lunch is back at drake bay. FYI: You have to wear a life jacket in Costa Rica np when snorkeling.
