Cocos Island, Diving
and Snorkeling Guide to by Lucy Agace. Published by Pisces Books/Lonely
Planet. ISBN 1-55992-092-0. Recommended retail price $14.95.
Described, incorrectly, as the largest uninhabited island in the world, Cocos is remote, wild and excellent for diving. Located 300+ miles west of Costa Rica, accessible only by boat, with no hotels and no accommodations - Cocos island is for the determined diver. But with determination comes rewards.
Spectacular payoffs include hordes of hammerhead sharks and dense populations of pelagic and reef fish. The dozen open-ocean dive sites in this guide take you where you may view white-tip, silky and whale sharks; manta devil and eagle rays; sailfish, marlin and green turtles.
