Had been to CoCo View before; really enjoyed the trip. New owners have made
some changes. Rooms are basic, not fancy, but beds are comfortable, clean
and good a/c. Maid service good. Good food and plenty of it, lunch/dinner
buffet style, breakfast made to order. Kitchen staff very good. Diving very
easy, boat rides were 10-30 mintutes; dive boats sturdy, easy to
enter/exit, covered; table and rinse tank for cameras.  Boat captains
helpful and good attitudes; my divemaster, Jessie, was outstanding. He is
very knowledgeable, in and out of the water. Found all the small critters,
good briefings. Kept the dive organized and fun. Found lots of photo ops.
First boat dive usually 1 hour, the drop off dive at either Newman's or
CoCo View wall on your own to plan. Shore diving easy, 24/7.  Dive shop
well equipped and can handle most all repairs. The photo shop is also well
equipped with supplies/advice.  Saw all the small critters, seahorses,
squid, crabs, lobsters, flamingo tongues,  toad fish, etc.  Saw rays, a
shark, turtles.  Coral seems to be coming back; some of the sites like
Forty Foot Point, Missing Link,Calvin's Crack were terrific because of the
coral, sponges and critters.  On our last day, a call came in that Orcas
had been spotted. One of the boat captains got a boat and out we went. We
spent 45 minutes watching them (6) swimming together; at one point, they
changed direction and swam directly under our boat.  Very exciting as they
are not seen in this area but a couple of times a year. This extra effort
by the captain was much appreciated.  CoCo View also seems to handle its
paperwork very well, easy to check in/check out; Nora also handle getting
your boarding passes for your return flights.  The whole staff headed up by
Billie and Erin do a great job.  Will be back asap.
