Another stroll down memory lane – this time to Cocos Island, Costa Rica (2006). Like the Galapagos Islands, Cocos Island is a mecca for shark-loving divers. You’ve gotta be a keener – the 36 hour crossing, on open ocean, is not for the weak of heart (or stomach), but the rewards are the thrills of diving with schools of hammerhead sharks, and the night dive with marauding white tip sharks.
This huge ball of jacks was so dense that when I swam into the school, it got very dark indeed. To be privileged to see such healthy populations of fish (especially sharks!) warmed this jaded diver’s heart.
I did a multimedia slideshow for this epic trip. Sadly, it is only viewable on PCs, or on Macs with a PC bootcamp installed. To see the show, follow this link to a slideshow download page —-> Cocos Island Sploogefest.
