Caño Island Snorkeling & Diving tour
This tour takes place in Drake bay. Drake is located 1 and a half hours away from Puerto Jimenez (Matapalo is 40 minutes away from Puerto Jimenez). You’ll be taken on a boat ride from Drake to Caño island for about 45 minutes. Once at Caño Island you will be taken to the different snorkeling / diving spots (depending on the activity of fish and other boats the spots are different). The diving tour includes 2 immersions. The snorkeling tour takes you to about 3 different spots. After the snorkeling / diving is finished you are taken to the Caño Island for lunch and to relax on the beach.

- The cost for snorkeling is $80.00 per person and diving is $130.00 per person. Snorkeling and diving equipment included.
- Divers must be certified by PADI or MAUI. You can become dive certified in Drake bay; however, the course takes 3 days so we recommend a short term stay in Drake for certification prior to the tour.
