A 40 minute boat ride from Playas del Coco, to dive with the Gigantic Manta Rays in Costa Rica!
An accumulation of about 20 pinnacles, the Catalina Islands are known for herding the Manta Rays between November and May! The Catalina Islands are located 40 minutes from Playas del Coco and are home to White Tips, Nurse Sharks, TONS of rays, the seldom Black Tips, and huge Sea Turtles! During the months of July-March, we are visited by the Humpbacks and their calves, and what better way to whale watch than on your surface intervals? Spotting the Humpbacks out at the Catalina Islands are the best way to see them, as they zig zag between the islands.
Some of the best dives we’ve had at the Catalina’s are listening to the Humpbacks sing back and forth to each other; this is a bucket list destination.
Unlike our local dives, these dive sites have no mooring block or descent line, so we do categorize these sites as advanced! There can be some surge and current depending on the day! Rockdivers Costa Rica would love to walk you through your first dives in a little current and free descent! Just ask us!
