Cobalt coast lived up to other reviews. Well run with excellent food. Would
suggest getting the full meal plan. Rooms were clean and well kept up as
was the entire resort. Owner and staff were extremely helpful. Swimming
pool had the cleanest water that I have seen in a long time. Dive tech did
a good job and their staff was helpful also. During our week, there ranged
between 7-14 divers on the boat. Not crowded at all. The corals were very
healthy from Northwest Point to North Wall. Certainly beats the west side
overall. The shore diving at the resort had very healthy corals once you
got to about 25 feet deep. Shore diving at Lighthouse Point was decent, but
only so so corals on the first coral wall. Best dive was Eagle Ray Pass as
we saw many eagle rays. Other dive site were good too. Only disappointment
was not seeing the type of macro critters hoped for. Have no complaints.
Would certainly go again especially when they offer their discount during
hurricane season.
