"Cocos Island is probably the most amazing place I have dived both above and below the water.

Its remoteness makes you feel that you are in a truly timeless place and the diving is high adrenaline stuff where the unexpected can happen at any time.

The submersible is a thing of wonder - 1000 feet under water and no deco, what could be better.

This operation is the best live aboard experience I have had."
— David MacNair, Founding tribe member since 2001.

Note: David went on one of the navy boats now so imagine an even better experience.
