Paradise Tortuga Island is located on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica in the Nicoya Peninsula, which is surrounded by an abundance of dive sites, most of which are accessible within a thirty minutes boat ride.
Isla Tortuga and its surrenders are famous around the world because is the only area in Costa Rica and Central America with three sank boats, where we provide one of the best diving adventures in Costa Rica. Average visibility ranges from 30 ft. to 50 ft. with possibilities of up to 80 ft. We dive volcanic rock formations and rock pinnacles.
Our local dive sites offer white tip sharks, giant schools of grunt, yellowtails, spotted eagle rays, turtles, stingrays, angel fish, octopus, sea horses, starfish, frog fish and many species of eels. We have also seen whale sharks up to 35 feet long on numerous occasions, as well as, spinner dolphin, humpback whales, pilot whales, orcas, false killer whales and schools containing hundreds of Mobulas and thousands of cow-nosed rays.
Also offered are long-range dive trips to both the Tortuga Island and Curu Wild Life Refuge. Tortuga Island is the ONLY place in Costa Rica where you can dive all the year around. Schools of Manta rays with wingspans from 14 ft. to 20 ft. have been seen along with numerous white tip.
The outside temperature at the beaches is 85° to 90° year round. The rainy season runs from May to November, with these months providing some of our best diving. Since we are located in a protected area and do not have rivers draining into our water and visibility is not adversely affected by the rain. In fact, visibility is often enhanced as the rain settles the plankton and rich nutrients that are abundant in Costa Rica.
