Cocos Island diving is all that it is cracked up to be - and much more! 
Incredible hammerhead shark diving, white tips on every dive, a few silver
tips, a few Galapagos sharks, and a small whale shark.  Lots of rays and
excitement on every single dive.  Even when it was relatively
"quiet" underwater, you just knew that something exciting was
waiting around the corner, and seldom were you disappointed.  Bait balls,
dolphins, and a huge variety of tropicals completed the cast of underwater
characters.  Strong currents, surge, and rough surface water make this trip
one that only advanced and worldly divers should make. I travelled with 2
terrific dive buddies and met an international group (Germany, Italy,
Russia, France, Costa Rica, Americans) onboard the boat.  The crew of the
Okeanos was excellent, from the Captain to the stewards.  Food was good and
plentiful.  The boat is showing signs of age, and our charter was full (22)
plus a couple of rangers to be shuttled to the island.  So, it was a little
crowded at times, but the staterooms are comfortable, with ample room.  In
room shower and toilet was more than adequate.  We had a rough ride both
coming and going, so the 32 hours at sea was not as pleasant as one would
have wished, but the diving more than made up for the trip.  If you have
ever thought about going to Cocos - go!
