6th-13th March 2017
Water Temperature: 82F Caño – 76 Coiba
This Week was a Special trip for us, we ran our fist Caño- Coiba Charter. For all of those who don´t know this means travelling to two exotica dive destinations in two countries, Costa Rica and Panama!
We started with an overnight trip to Caño Island in the south side of Costa Rica and got there just for our early morning dive, we had some white tip sharks, schools of grunts and snappers and a couple of turtles pay a quick visit. Our second and third dive where done close to shore to get our guest back to diving and there where still more fish around the reef, it was a great day of diving! Second day we did two dives before raising our anchors and heading to Coiba island in Panama, what a great dives this where, schools of fish you could loose your buddy and just to end the second dive a giant oceanic manta came by just to keep our guests exited to come back.
After another overnight crossing we got to Coiba island in Panama, this place is as beautiful above water as it is below! This day we got to ssee giant goliath groupers, mobula rays and dozens of really big snappers, along with a brown frog fish that was waiting for us on the reef. Next day we went to the West side of the island where we dove Santa Cruz and Dos Tetas which are sites so full of soft and hard coral that makes them really amazing. We got to do a barbecue for our guests at a pristine beach at Coiba which left everyone enchanted.
Last day at Coiba we did two dives, our dive at Roller Coaster was as the name describes it. There where so much animals around, stingrays, eagle rays, white-tips, and hundreds of snappers around the rock. After a quick visit by customs and immigration we where set to o back to Costa Rica where Beatufil caño Island awaited, last day we did 3 dives, We dove twice bajo del diablo because we had a Giant manta stick around for our entire dive so we knew we had to go back, and what a dive it was, we had a 4 meter wide manta stay with us for 60 minutes, this way we ended our week of diving.
Thank yoou very much to all of our guest for making this an amazing Week.
