Comments Divetech is a first class operation. The people, the boats, everything. Once they were comfortable with you, you could go do your own thing (w/ buddy). We took our boys down to get certified - being new divers, some of the profiles were a bit of a stretch. The DM's let me take them down and do more as they felt more comfortable. Very professional.

We dove mostly west beach, with two dives in the south. We didn't get to dive the north wall at all. Perhaps my ratings would be slightly higher if we did; I don't know. Staying at Cobalt during winter season doesn't give you the maximum experience if you can't dive the north wall (what people told me, I didn't dive it, so I don't know).

Cobalt Coast is a great operation as well. We didn't go for the food plan, and saved a bundle. But the food we did eat was great. Great service. The only real complaint I had was that the wireless didn't work too well all the time at all. But when I needed to do some larger stuff, they let me connect using a hard line. Very nice indeed.

We'd come back.
