365 miles off of Costa Rica

From; pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sharks/island/sanssubmerged.html
Like commuters in a busy train station, squirrelfish, yellow goatfish, and blue-striped snapper jostle one another in a dark tunnel 80 feet beneath this surface hazard. The photographer Georgienne Bradley saw her first whale shark here. "Instead of being frightened by the divers, he seemed intrigued," she wrote in Skin Diver magazine (9/94). "He circled continuously, pausing on each pass to scratch his back and sides on the boat’s anchorchain."

Swimming through this splendid arched hole, you will find colorful scenery creating unique photo opportunities at depths between 50 to 70 feet. This pinnacle serves as a nursery for white tip sharks, where one can always see pregnant females and tiny babies.
