MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!
Just a handful of lucky divers will have the opportunity to experience the high voltage diving at Cocos Island with us in 2011. Among Cocos Island’s many attributes is a startling degree of biodiversity. This island’s world-renowned waters explode with life; including innumerable white tip reef sharks, schooling hammerhead sharks, dolphins, mantas and marbled rays, giant moray eels, sailfish, and of course the occasional whale shark. Other common encounters are large schools of jacks and tuna, silky sharks, silver tip sharks, marlin, Creole fish, green turtles and octopus. Like the Galapagos, endemism is high here with 27 species found nowhere else in the world.

We journey 36 hours on our luxury yacht, the Argos, 300 miles from the shore of Costa Rica to this remote oasis then spend 8 days diving. The diving here is more akin to Galapagos, big boy action off the volcanic shores!
Totally unique to diving with the Undersea Hunter group is Deep See. DeepSee is a custom built one-atmosphere submarine, capable of carrying one pilot and two passengers down to a depth of 1,500 feet (475 m). The Argos offers (for additional fee), the world of adventure travelers a journey deep into the submerged realm where few have gone before. This is going to be TOTALLY AMAZING!
Here is what David Macnair had to say about his recent trip: “Cocos is probably the most amazing place I have dived both above and below the water. Its remoteness makes you feel that you are in a truly timeless place and the diving is high adrenaline stuff where the unexpected can happen at any time . The submersible is a thing of wonder – 1000 feet under water and no deco what could be better. This operation is the best live aboard experience I have had.”
So many people have said, “When you do Cocos just sign us up” that even as we release this expedition, there are just a couple of cabins available! Let’s go!!!!
