    FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

    Getting There, Passport & Visa Documentation for Cocos Island

    Cocos Island is located off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Guests fly to San Jose, Costa Rica for a two-hour air-conditioned bus ride to Puntarenas, which showcases some of Costa Rica's most beautiful views.

    Most major airlines fly into San Jose, Costa Rica: American, Iberia, United, Delta, Lacsa, Taca. An overnight stay in San Jose is usually required prior to the trip due to airline schedules. Recommended hotels are the host hotels, Holiday Inn Escazu and Holiday Inn Express Forum in San Jose where group transfers are provided from.

    Visitors must have a current passport, adequate funds to support themselves, and a return airline ticket. US citizens require a passport that must be valid for 6 months from date of entry. It is the travelers’ responsibility to ensure they have the proper visa to travel into each country on his or her itinerary as well as for re-entry and return to their country. Since regulations vary by country, contact your consulate or embassy of your country for the requirement.

    Arrival/Boarding/Departure Cocos

    Guests will be met by a representative in uniform at our two host hotels, the Holiday Inn Escazu and Holiday Inn Express Forum on the day of departure at a pre-set time for the group transfer. The pick-up and boarding time schedule is available in our "Know Before You Go" document and below in the "Departure Schedule" link. Boarding depends on the tide schedule. Immediately after boarding the yacht departs for its crossing to Cocos Island to prepare for diving Monday morning. After a full seven days of diving, the OKEANOS AGGRESSOR returns back to the dock in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Check-out is Tuesday morning at 7:30 am. Transportation is provided back to the host hotels or San Jose (SJO) airport from the yacht at the end of the charter. Book flights after 12:30 pm

    Local Fees/Taxes

    USD $490 Park Fee, (10 night charters), $350 Park Fee (8 night charters), non-divers $350 (10 night charters) $250 (8 night charters), $30 Emergency Evacuation Plan, (both paid onboard), $29 airport departure tax paid at airport (many airlines include this in ticket). All onboard sales/services have a 13% tax excluding park fees/evacuation program. All fees and taxes must be paid in cash.

    Mandatory Emergency Evacuation Program Fee $30

    When medical evacuation is needed, this fee establishes and funds pre-established and pre-authorized emergency evacuation protocols that have been created to facilitate the immediate dispatch of medical transport. Depending on the benefits under other policies held by the guest, their insurance carrier may or may not have logistics (services or funding) in place to deal specifically with Cocos Island - which could result in delayed response times for the medical evacuation and ultimate first responder care. This new program benefits every passenger aboard, not only the injured

    diver. Currently if the injured diver’s insurance plan fails to respond quickly enough with evacuation plans, the captain of the yacht would be obligated to terminate the cruise early and head back to port – thus impacting everyone’s travels.

    This new program minimizes this risk for all guests. This fee is paid onboard the yacht. Dive accident insurance is mandatory prior to traveling on the Okeanos Aggressor I or II. Proof is required prior to diving. We strongly recommend each guest purchase comprehensive accident, medical, baggage and trip cancellation and interruption insurance when space is reserved. Trip insurance will protect you from financial disappointment if you are prevented from making your scheduled trip due to illness or family illness, or in the event that unforeseen circumstances prevent the airline or yacht from making its scheduled trip. In the event you cancel your trip prior, be familiar with Aggressors cancellation policies. For more information on insurance, visit Diveassure or Divers Alert Network insurance on our website.

    The Yacht Include:

    All staterooms are air-conditioned and fitted with private toilets, showers and sinks. Breakfast (cooked to order), buffet lunch and an elegant chef prepared meal at dinner with table side service are served in addition to fresh mid morning and mid-afternoon snacks. Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are complimentary while onboard. The yacht is equipped with hairdryers in each stateroom. Linens are changed mid-week and fresh towels are placed in each stateroom as needed. Filled tanks, weights and weight belts are included.

    Health

    The yachts have a first aid kit onboard, including oxygen and an AED. You may want to bring motion sickness medication if you feel you will need it. We suggest you bring over-the-counter motion sickness medication or consult your doctor about prescription brands, such as the trans-dermal patch or Scopace tablets. Currents and winds may cause moderate movement of the yacht at times. We recommend a complete physical before your trip. The nearest decompression chambers are located in San Jose, Golfito and Puntarenas, Costa Rica.

    The yachts and their staff are unable to accept any medication brought onboard for safekeeping including those that require refrigeration. Should a guest have a medication requiring temperature control, they will need to travel with a travel cooling case or small storage cooler with several blue ice packets. The yachts will be happy to store and recharge the blue ice but are unable to accept possession or responsibility for the proper care and storage of medication. This should be kept in the stateroom. There is NO smoking allowed inside the boat or on the dive deck. Smoking is only permitted on the rear of the sun deck.

    Food / Beverages

    Food: The menu onboard both yachts is varied and plentiful, with a variety of American feasts, barbecues and local cuisine. If you have any special dietary requirements, please advise the US office as soon as possible so the yacht can adequately prepare to meet your needs. You will wake up to fresh fruits, hot entrees, cereals and juices. Lunches are buffet-style, featuring hot soups, homemade breads, salads and sandwiches and/or entrees. Dinners are chef prepared and served each evening and include salads, vegetables, seafood, beef or chicken with a fresh homemade dessert. Once onboard, please speak to the chef about any special needs. Certain special dietary and beverage requests may not be available due to the remote nature of this location.

    Beverages: The Aggressor’s selection includes fruit juices, soft drinks, iced water, iced tea, coffee, and a limited selection of local beer and wine, which are complimentary. Due to the high duty charged on liquor, we suggest you bring your special brand from the U.S/International. Due to local regulations; the bar will be closed while the boat is in port. Drinking and diving do not mix. Once you consume alcohol, you become a snorkeler until the next day.

    Diving

    The staff of the Okeanos Aggressor I and II with their unique combination of talents offers the ultimate service. While on board you may pick a buddy of your choice or dive with a staff member. There is ample storage space for your diving equipment in your personal locker. The Okeanos Aggressor yachts provide 80 cubic ft. tanks, weight belts and weights. All tanks have K-valves (American type) and DIN (European) valves. Adapters are no longer need DIN adapters to convert the tanks to fit DIN regulators.

    There are a limited number of 100 cu ft/13-liter tanks available. With advanced notice, these can be rented from another operation. The cost is $90 and must be rented in advance due to availability. Diving amenities include Nitrox (unlimited Nitrox is $150 for 10 night charters).

    The pangas are 22 feet in length. There is ample space for camera equipment and the panga tender will handle it with care. Getting you in and out of the water from the pangas is easy. Once your dive is completed and you’re preparing to get back in the panga, a staff member will assist and help take your tank. There is a divemaster on each panga for every single dive. You hand him your weight belt, and the rest is easy. All diving should be within the limits and standards ofthe training agency that certified you. All dives should be planned with no decompression dives. This trip is recommended for advanced divers. The divemaster has the authority to decide if a diver is able to dive certain dive sites according to their perception of the divers ability to ensure his safety.

    Guests will be provided free of charge a GPS locator that operates through satellite in case of an emergency, it sends an SMS to the Okeanos local office with coordinate and to the rescue coordination center with a web link to your location.

    We suggest you pack the following: mask, fins, snorkel, regulator with visible pressure gauge, depth gauge, dive 6 computer, buoyancy compensator, and dive gloves. Strongly recommended: Spare mask, a dive watch, dive light, safety sausage, whistle, Dive Alert, mirror and/or other safety devices. Dive computers are mandatory. Each piece of gear should be marked with waterproof paint or tape. Due to the thermoclines and upwelling, we recommend a 3mm wetsuit as a minimum. Most divers use a 5mm wetsuit with booties and a hood. Please see our “Adventure Log” on our website for current diving conditions.
