We chose this resort because their website showed a good set up for shore
diving.  With two boat dives a day, we wanted to maximize our number of
dives & have the freedom to do our own diving.  Well much to our
surprise and delight CoCoView does what they call "drop offs" in
the morning & in the afternoon.  As they near the resort, the drop you
off on one of the two walls (Newman's Wall in the morning & CoCo View
Wall in the afternoon).  Since we were staying for more than a week, &
in order to not see the same section of the wall every day, we chose to
start deep & then each day start 10 feet shallower.  By the end of the
trip, our last dive was near the top of the wall at about 20 feet.  Both
walls are fabulous, but Coco View wall is my favorite.  It's more vertical,
feels more lush, with overhangs and lots of nooks & crannies to find
stuff.
We are not Saturday to Saturday kind of vacationers, we like to do 10 days
or so arriving mid-week and leaving the following Friday or Saturday.  CoCo
View is definitely set up for the Sat. to Sat. folks.  We thought we would
be able to do a shore/check out dive that afternoon, but they require an
orientation dive with a staff member.  At the time I was a bit irritated;
we arrived early afternoon & I wanted to get in the water!  The next
morning we met up with our dive master & did a shore dive in front of
the resort.  Had a great dive & saw an eagle ray four times (same one)
during the course of the dive.  They take you out to the wreck that sits in
the channel in front of the resort & then orient you to both walls. 
Afterwards, I see why they do this, but at the the time I simply thought he
was giving us the lay of the land for shore  ...
