Caño Island Snorkeling from Uvita
Enjoy a Day Full of Fun while Snorkeling One of the Best Spots in Costa Rica
This tour takes you on an early morning boat ride for a full day of fun to Caño Island Biological Reserve and a visit to Violines Island. The boat ride is part of the adventure: the 1.5 hour trip is a great opportunity to see spotted and bottlenose dolphins, humpback whales (depending on the season), large sea turtles, and even flying fish. The boat is run by a three-man team, is clean, and has shade, and your captain can stop to let you observe and take photos of the wildlife. Your first stop will be at Caño Island for some of the best snorkeling in Costa Rica.
Then, take a 30-minute ride to Violines Island. You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch on this small island, where you can spend the rest of the time exploring the beach and/or swimming. During dry season, you can typically snorkel in the reefs. Mid-way through the afternoon, you will start heading back to Uvita and will be able to spot the largest mangrove forest protected in Central America—Térraba National Park.
This tour is ideal for those who enjoy long scenic boat rides and appreciate marine life. Note: there are no restrooms available until Violines Island. The time that you spend on Violines depends on the amount of time you spend snorkeling at Caño Island.
