Vacation Dive Video | Isla del Caņo, Costa Rica

No spearfishing, but I figured some of you might enjoy this video of a couple of my dives while on vacation in Costa Rica.

The manta ray is impressive. What kind of sharks were those w/ the white tips?

Re: Vacation Dive Video | Isla del Caņo, Costa Rica

It was pretty cool. I hoped to see one and I was sitting on my safety stop thinking, "this was a great dive, but too bad I didn't see a Manta." Then bam, he came in out of nowhere and swam toward me twice. The second pass, he actually turned toward me within arms reach. Needless to say, I sucked my tank dry.

The sharks are https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitetip_reef_shark. Similar in behavior as our nurse sharks.

According to the dive op, that was the first Manta they've seen all year, unlike Cocos ($$$) where a sighting is all but guaranteed. They also said they only get to dive that spot about 10% of the time they go out due to current. We got lucky, the current was mild and the surge was intermittent.

Really enjoyed that, especially the Manta encounter.

I think they should change the name of the country to "Costa White Tail Reef Shark Rica". Better describes the county! Looks like some fun dives.
