Pin It

Virador is a low lying volcanic island, its main dive is around a pinnacle, home to turtles, white tip sharks and rays. The 'shark cave' sounds like a highlight as well.

Cano Island has two pinnacles and plenty of deep dives with rocky peaks and valleys to explore. Here there is the opportunity to see big tuna and impressively submarine-like barracuda.
