The Catalinas are situated about a half hour boat ride from our location at Playa Ocotal and offer your best chance to swim with the Pacific Giant Mantas in Costa Rica. The Catalinas’ are an isolated group of islands, south of our dive shop.. They are perfect places for large schools of fish, rays, and other marine life to congregate. The huge prize is to swim with the Pacific Giant Manta whose wing span can be wider than a vehicle is long. These can be found in the Catalinas for most of the year. There has also been occasional whale shark and orca whale sightings in the area. Sightings of the humpback whale and dolphins are also quite common.
Visibility in the Catalinas ranges throughout the year, however, the best visibility can often be found from the months of May through November.
