Just 32 miles offshore of Dominical Beach and positioned squarely within a massive current of the Pacific Ocean, Isla del Caño and its suroundings hosts a diverse population of migratory creatures, such as whales and turtles as well as over 70 indigenous species. The colorful and majestic living-reef system surrounding the island is replete with marine organisms, including multiple types of shellfish, sponges, mollusks, arthropods, fish, marine reptiles and sea mammals. Common, bottlenose and spotted dolphins are regularly seen, as well as white tip and reef sharks. Eagle Rays, giant manta rays and moray eels are also regular sights on many of our dives. If you’re really lucky you might see a whale shark or a humpback whale. These animals - while rare - have been spotted during some of our Caño Island Scuba Diving Tours during whale-watching season.
