CANO ISLAND SNORKELING TOUR
Only 12 nautical miles from Aguila de Osa Inn, Caño Island is a paradise for snorkelers, scuba divers, swimmers, and sunbathers alike! The Island can be seen just minutes after leaving the protected cove of the hotel, and the boat ride takes about 45 minutes. During the months of the Northern and Southern migrations (December to April and July to November) you may be lucky enough to spot humpback whales or dolphins frolicking in the ocean on your way to the Island!
Your boat will anchor at two different sites close Caño Island, and your snorkeling guide will point out the diverse species living just below the surface. The dark, volcanic rock and the open water around the Island are home to a variety of marine life including Olive Ridley and Hawksbill Sea Turtles, White-Tipped Sharks, several species of Moray Eels, Mobula and Sting Rays, big Cubera Snapper, schools of Horse-Eyed Jacks, King Angel fish, Grunts, Barracudas, and much, much more.
Between snorkeling trips, you will have time to relax on the beach and enjoy the beauty of Caño Island. This tour includes lunch, which may include a variety of tropical fruits and drinks, salad, sandwiches, and cookies. Lunch is prepared by your tour guide and served around midday at shaded picnic tables on the beach. The Caño Island Park Ranger Station has an office, public bathrooms, and an outdoor, freshwater shower.
“The snorkeling trip to Caño Island was terrific where we saw all kinds of colorful fish and the picnic lunch that was spread out for us (prepared by the Inn) was amazing. We were treated like royalty.”
