Our David Attenbourgh inspired tour combines snorkeling at Cano Island, with a Whale and Dolphin Pelagic tour. You will have the opportunity to experience mega-pods of Spinner Dolphins, Bottlenose Dolphins and Spotted Dolphins as well as any number of our 12 species of resident cetaceans. Along the way, sea birds, fish, rays, and turtles can also be experienced.

Snorkeling at Cano island includes 2 hours at two different sites, where an amazing variety of fish, turtles, rays, eels, and sharks congregate. We may visit Cano island either in the morning or the afternoon, depending on the best tide.

This epic adventure departs at 8am and return at approximately 4:30pm. The tour also includes lunch, snacks and drinks, snorkeling equipment, Cano Island entrance fees, and a certified bilingual guide. You should bring plenty of sun protection, bathing suit, waterproof camera, extra water and flip flops.

This is a private and exclusive tour, that we operate commission free, so there is a flat fee of $1065 per person with $25 per additional person up to 6 people.

Of all the things faced by travelers planning a trip in Drake Bay, lack of time seems to be the one that causes the most frustration. Because of time constraints and an abundance of available activities, I see opportunity in the fact that just 2 hours of snorkeling at Cano Island is sufficient for visitors to understand how impressive the location is. Thus, I recommend combining your Cano Island snorkeling with a Whale and Dolphin Pelagic Tour.

The whale and dolphin tour by itself, passes by Cano Island, on the way to the Furuno Bank (30 miles offshore), but it doesn’t stop. If one were to add a Cano Island certified tour guide and entrance pass to the whale and dolphin tour then the group can also make the Cano Island stop, accomplishing the equivalent of both activities in just one day. In addition to saving time, this combo costs much less than doing the two activities separately.

Not only do you get more potential snorkeling time, but the tour allows for visiting Cano Island either in the late afternoon, when most tourist boats have already left. I personally prefer to have space when exploring nature and this is a non-issue when you are in the only boat in the vicinity.

You have probably done the math by now and realized that this combo tour is 8.5 hours long. It’s not for everyone! You will be tired when you return to Drake Bay but the experience gained from maximizing your opportunities definitely deem it worthy of the long nap afterwards! Most that visit Drake Bay are here for adventure, so if you think that you are ready, then this combo day should be on the top of your to do list.
