Scuba diving in Tamarindo is a must if you are visiting Costa Rica's Pacific coast and our 2 tank scuba dive to the Catalina Islands offers an amazing underwater experience for all skill levels of divers.
The Catalina Island chain is a series of rocky outcrops 2-8 miles off the Pacific Coast of northwestern Costa Rica. These islands are volcanic and sedimentary rising from a sandy bottom about 60 - 120 feet. There are a haven for marine life including white tip reef sharks, golden rays, nurse sharks and southern sting rays. You can also see large schools of colorful tropical fish here. Giant Pacific Manta rays can be viewed here between November and May. These are not just ordinary manta rays but Manta birostris. This species of manta ray can have a wingspan of up 7.3 meters and weigh up to nearly 1,363 kg. These enormous animals feed primarily on the microscopic plants and animals found in plankton which is plentiful at the Catalinas Islands.
A dive trip to Islas Catalinas is an absolute MUST for more experienced divers. These are the areas where you are more likely to find the larger pelagics and possibly Whales, which can be spotted from September through March. Visitors diving into the 20 uninhabited outcrops, which make up the Catalina Islands, have the option of exploring 30 different diving spots. There are six dive sites that are regularly visited at Catalina, including the two most popular the Elephant Rock dive site and Los Sombreros. Diving trips to Catalina Islands take approximately 2 hours each way, making these two tank scuba dives an all-day affair, but we guarantee your diving experience will make it well worth the journey!
