Tour Leader: Amy Christopher

Cocos Island is known as one of the best big animal dive sites in the world. One of the most outstanding phenomena in Cocos are the enormous congregations of silky sharks who often mix with hammerheads to form colossal shark schools. It is also common to encounter whitetip sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, yellowfin tuna, and possibly whale sharks. Cocos is also home to 27 endemic fish species including the exotic red-lipped batfish. This beautiful, verdant island is an important rookery for several species of ocean birds including the red-footed booby, black noddy, and magnificent frigate birds. Cocos is unlike any other place in the world and must be visited to be believed!

Argo is a very intentional blend of work ship and luxury yacht. She was totally redesigned and refitted in 2008 to pamper up to 16 discriminating passenger in 8 spacious, wellappointed staterooms. A 130ft vessel with full global reach, the Argo was also conceived to serve as the ultimate platform for a deep-diving submersible as well as for remote operating vehicle deployment. Extended, multi-task cruises are her specialty and of course she is mothership to the remarkable DeepSee submersible.
