Did someone say it's about time for another GTS trip announcement? After our latest GTS trip in Jordan sold out straight away and with a waitlist verrryyy long for our GTS Shark dive in Florida we are excited to announce another chance to join Girls that Scuba in a completely new destination!
Join us, our friends Dive Ninjas Expeditions and Shark Scientist Marta Cambra Agustí for a very special Shark Conservation Expedition to Cocos Island.
This is a limited offer trip with 22 spaces available. Everyone is welcome to join, both male and female divers. We recommend that you act fast as this trip will sell out quick
Cocos Island just off the coast of Costa Rica has been named one of the top 3 diving destinations in the world by many a diver. A protected National Park & UNESCO World Heritage Site it was named, “the most beautiful island in the world” by Jacques Cousteau, the man we all know and love for exploring the worlds oceans. So what can you expect to see while diving in Cocos Island? How about huge schools of hammerhead sharks showing off in front of your eyes, then massive tiger sharks, white tip sharks, Galapagos Sharks, whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, eagle rays, yellowfin tuna, sailfish, gigantic schools of fish... should we keep going? There's a reason Cocos Island is consistently voted one of the best places in the world to dive!
For this expedition we have chartered the Aggressor Okeanos II. She is 37 meters (120 ft) long, has a 9m (28ft) beam, and comfortably holds 22 divers and 9 crew. She was built for the long ocean crossings so Cocos so stability and comfort were a top priority.
