My first roll of film had 36 (different) big critters, one on each frame!

Isla del Cocos is a small island (8 sq miles) 255 miles off the Costa Rican coast and is one of the top 10 dives worldwide.

Sharks galore! Hammerheads (famous for schools), oceanics, whalesharks - you name 'em, they're here. I did get spooked on one dive when one big feller gave me the eye and I got out quick!

water temp was 75F so a thick wetsuit was needed.

Best sites - Manuelita islet and dirty rock
