Coco's Island is often in the top five of experienced divers' bucket lists! Dives are action-filled with multiple shark species to look at, including white-tip reef sharks, giant hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks, but also dolphins, marble rays, manta rays, and 45 marine endemic species! Coco's Island dive sites have a fantastic topography with seamounts, arches, and caves.
