Just did a liveaboard in the galapagos and it was a big WOW. Now I am curious to know if the cocos are similar or just ok compare to galapagos...
So in term of big stuff variety who's the best ?
I’m counting on it, dived all but Punta Vincenta Roca In rashie and shorts, was a chilli dive in my 3mm . Heard start of December was end of hammerhead season in cocos, but guides in Galapagos said there not really a season in Galapagos contrary to what u read online. Fingers crossed for a great trip with some vis. 25 degrees plus would be the dream.
I went to both. Each has unique things to see. I would say to go to both places. If you like to see marine iguana & sea lions, don't mind the cold water, then Galapagos is your place to dive. If you like to see lots of sharks, different types of sharks, including schooling hammerheads in warmer water, and you don't mind 36 hour boat ride from the Costa Rica coast to Cocos island, then Cocos is your place to dive.
