Reporter and Travel
Dive Experience
51-100 dives
Where else diving
I generally dive the quarry's of Western Pennsylvania,and Lake Erie so my
definition of warm water and good visibility is biased.  I have also dived
in Maui, Hawaii (Ed Robinson).

Dive Policy

Enforced diving restrictions  
One Dive Master per boat in the water mostly as a tour guide.  Most dives
between 40 to 85 feet.  Coco View is primarily for experienced divers and
photographers so restrictions listed in the briefing were not much of an
issue.  Enforcement is low key.

Shore Facilities  
Many Photographers at this resort.  Dive boats have camera only tanks and
manage that separate from mask tanks pretty well.  One diver in my group
had a latch on his camera housing come undone when handing it up to the
crew.  That resulted in a flooded camera when it went into the tank on
board the boat.  Probably an unfortunate accident, but it may be better to
have the crew hand your camera back to you to put in the tank after you
climb aboard.

This is a well run, low-key resort.   It is primarily for more experienced
divers and photagraphers.  Two boat dives per day with 2 drop off dives at
the reef that is right in front of the resort. The longest boat trip to a
dive site was 20 minutes.  Divemasters are friendly and knowledgable of the
various reefs and aquatic life.  (Marcos and Gringo were terrific!)  One
night boat dive is generally scheduled on Wednesdays.  Unlimited
shore/night diving  with good dock/dive staff that are friendly and
knowledgable.  Many of the people in my group took the PADI Nitrox course
why they were there.

Rooms are nice, and are either near or over the water and air conditioned.
(One TV in the clubhouse) Food/Bar/Clubhouse is all in one building.  Food
is buffet style and pretty good with reasonable variety.  This resort is
smaller than others and low key with only 60 or 70 guests on site.  Night
life was pretty tame when we were there but I am told it varies week to
week depending on the size of the groups that come in.   There is not much
to do other than diving here.  The Zip line tour on the other side of the
island was a fun trip when you need a break from diving.  If your
spouse/partner is not a diver, it will be a long week for them.  With 20
dives in 5 days, it felt a bit like SCUBA camp.  If you want to dive a lot,
with good reefs and photo ops, this is a terrific place.
