Comments We had a incredible week of diving at Cocos. The crossings were longer than expected and took 42 hours to get there in fairly rough seas and 40 hours back with calmer seas. The Wind Dancer while being an older boat is still in excellent shape, very comfortable, and extremely well maintained. The food was plentiful and very good. Breakfast included Fruits, Cereals, Pancakes, Rice & Beans, Eggs to order, sausage or bacon. Lunch was Buffet style and varied daily. Dinner was a sit down served meal and was very good. The diving was done out of two Pangas( inflatables) so space was very limited but adequate. The diving was incredible for large pelagics. Whitetips, Blacktips, Hammerheads, Galapagos, and numerous Tiger Sharks including a 12'-14'. The Crew was excellent and started with Captain Mauricio whose love of diving and showing his guests a great time was quite evident. I would highly recommend the Wind Dancer and hope to be back soon.
