Cocos Island (57) More files... by Flip Nicklin
Graceful ribbon-like fins stream behind a glistening young pompano. A hungry hammerhead shark patrols the depths, hunting for prey. Divers swim alongside a huge but harmless whale shark, dwarfed by its size. Once a legendary buccaneers hideout, palm-lined Cocos Island is rumored to hold millions in buried treasure. Pirate stories aside, Cocos' true wealth is found in the variety of deep-water fish, sharks, rays and jewel-like dwellers of the reefs. Flip Nicklin brings to us the wonderful treasures of this diver's paradise.
