We took the snorkeling trip to Cano Island, and got the same as offered on the whale watching trip. Dolphins, Turtels, Sharks and amazing Fishes. Really can recommend a trip to Cano Island

Not the best scuba dive I have been on. Poor visibility and not much to look at.I would not reccomend the scuba at Cano Island.

We went for a scuba diving trip next to the island. We are novice divers, so, not too picky. Besides the whale shark, we also saw white tip sharks, a huge grouper, and some stingrays and barracudas.
According to more experienced divers at our hotel, they would not have gone there if they had known the conditions. Poor visibility (too "dusty") no reef and strong currents.

Saw many fish, manta rays, eels. Small jelly fish in the water to watch out for. Seems you can negotiate price - cash preferred

The snorkeling was pretty good, but doesn't compare to places I've been in Hawaii and the Galapagos. It is worth the trip out though. The highlights were turtles and dolphins, as well as a couple reef sharks and a white tipped shark.
