Marino Ballena National Park is the second place with greater coral reef and fish diversity along the South Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. On the Snorkeling Tour, we depart from Punta Uvita and visit the great snorkeling treasures of the Marino Ballena National Park: reefs of Ballena Island, Tres Hermanas Islets and the Punta Uvita Whale’s Tail. During the snorkeling you can find parrotfish, butterfly fish, blue surgeonfish, and a great number of starfish at a depth that ranges from 1 to 3 meters. During the tour you may observe whales, dolphins, turtles, marine birds and fantastic views of the southern pacific Osa coastline. This tour is better between the months of December and July as our coastal waters become crystal clear opportunities to observe life’s mysteries down below the ocean surface.
