This was our third trip diving with DiveTech and our second trip in a year
staying at Cobalt Coast.  We really enjoy the experience of feeling like
friends rather than customers.  Our first trip was just the two of us and
this trip included six others.  The resort is small and out of the way. 
This leads to a home-like environment.  The food is very good and the staff
went out of their way to provide for special dietary needs.  Arie, the
owner, even made a special dessert for us one night.

As for the dive operation, I appreciate the fact that they treat you as the
independent, competent diver you were trained to be.  Safety and
environmental protection are top priorities.  The staff provides the
service you need but doesn't bother you with unneeded or unwanted
"service" like pointing out a Pederson cleaning shrimp at the end
of a dive on which you have seen dozens.  They allow you the freedom to
handle your own gear the way you want to handle it.  I felt that the DM's
were available if you needed them but they did not interfere with my dive
experience, as have some at other operations.  

This is an excellent dive resort for divers who enjoy an independent diving
