Details
The Marino Ballena National Park was created in 1990 to preserve and protect the 4500 ha of coral reef that surrounds Ballena & Las Tres Hermanas Islands. This park also protects 13 km of pristine coastline including beautifully scenic beaches such as: Playa Ventanas, Playa Pi?uelas, Playa Ballena, Playa Hermosa and Playa Bahia. Marino Ballena Park's most interesting sedimentation process has formed a Tombolo, or land bridge, linking the offshore reef to the mainland of Uvita Bay. This interesting formation can be seen and accessed only at low tide. In the park there can be found sponges, corals, mollusks, algae, echinoderms, crabs and other creatures which are adapted to the strong tidal swell. Green Iguanas abound in the park, feeding on plentiful alga plants. It is also an important refuge and nesting place for numerous marine birds including the frigate and the sea earwig. It is considered the most median point of reproduction of the Humpback Whale which comes to these tropical waters during winter months.

Departing early in the morning in our comfortable van, through the Costanera Highway, along the Pacific Ocean for about 1 ? hour, up to the town of Sierpe. We?ll stop in Sierpe for 30 minutes to eat breakfast (not included). Next we cruise down the Sierpe River on a cozy & covered boat through the largest Mangrove swamp in Central America on the way into the Pacific Ocean.

When we get to the diving spots our professional Dive Master will briefly go over with the first dive itinerary and some instructions to make your dive even more enjoyable. After the first dive is done, we?ll be dropped off on the island for a delicious Picnic Lunch, than will take you out for the last dive always hoping that the second one will be better that the first one. After this second part of the tour, we?ll head back to Dominical. The tour departure time depends upon the tides. Please call us for exact times.
