“Amazing Sea Life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

A must visit when you are in the Drake Bay or surrounding area. Went for a snorkeling trip and got to see different types of sea turtles, sting rays, sharks, and lots of fishes. The boat ride there and back we also got to see dolphins around.

Note that Cano Island has a small station and there is no bathroom facility.

“Snorkeling & Diving at Cano Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

The day around and on Cano Island was amazing, nice weather, clear view, great visability under water and we saw lots of sharks, seaturtles, sting rays and a few 5meter mantas at the devil's rock. One of the highlights was the lunch at the end. A great meal with fish, rice and salad. All in all it was a great day and we would definitely do it again.

“Saw lots of marine life”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

I would have enjoyed this more but I got stung my a jellyfish. I had a bad reaction but otherwise we saw sharks, turtles, lots of fish and a couple of dolphins on the boat ride there. You aren't allowed on Canon Island so we went back to a beach on the mainland for lunch.

“Scuba diving adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

If you want to see big animals, this diving adventure is for you. We saw a very large ray, a whale shark and a school of about 300 baricuda surrounding us. Their mirrored bodies created a disco-ball envirnoment under water. Go with Lynn's (not sure the name of it) dive shop. (ask at the B&B Finca Marisea for his information). He's great!!
