First time to Cobalt Coast, although we have been beach diving at
DiveTech's other locations for years. Ari, the General Manager greeted
everyone as we got off the shuttle from the airport and helped get divebags
off the shuttle. Very personable and customer service oriented, as is the
rest of Ari's crew. The one bedroom suite was spacious and comfortable. The
resort is smaller than I thought, but very nice and a relaxing atmosphere.
We got the full meal plan. Breakfast is buffet style, several types of
cooked eggs, pancakes, french toast (my favorite), bacon, sausage etc.
Bagels were also an option. Lunch is from a menu, as is dinner. Every meal
was good and they were a big help in dealing with my wife's MSG allergy. No
DiveTech was not a surprise for us. We have dove through their other
location for beach diving for many years and new Nancy Easterbrook ran a
good operation. The three of us were on the larger boat along with 9-12
other divers, depending on the day. We did not feel crowded. We dove the
north wall on dive one every day and a shallow reef on the way back to
Cobalt Coast for dive 2. Briefings were detailed and helpful with drawings
on the dry-erase board. Beautiful wall diving. Loved the freedom of more
bottom time on both dives. Our personal dives were normally 45-50 minutes
on dive one and one hour on dive two. Some dive guides would show divers
critters, some would not as much.
We enjoyed the beach diving in front of Cobalt Coast. Easy in and out.
There was alot of critters and sometimes turtles and larger fish on the
sand flats on the way to and from the mini-wall.
Would we stay at Cobalt Coast again? Absolutely and plan to in 2010.
