We spent the week of May 17-24, 2008 at CocoView Resort in Roatan. This
trip was essentially a repeat of our 2005 trip except that we had a direct
flight from Atlanta to Roatan on Delta which went without a hitch both
ways. We also stayed in a bungalow instead of a cabana this time  the
breeze was much stronger at the bungalow, which was nice, but the interior
seemed more in need of updating  the bungalows are showing their age.
Check out our 2005 trip report for more details on the resort, dive op,
etc. at (no www in front)

We enjoyed the company of a great group of divers during this trip  mostly
people in their 40s to 60s with laid back attitudes, so it was very
relaxing and enjoyable on the dive boats and in the dining area. If anyone
who was there that week is reading this  hello to Leo, Mike, Charlie &
Kelly, Dustin & Nancy, Russ & Robin  we really enjoyed getting to
know you!

We dove on the blue boat with Jesse and Rueben and they were both great 
they took good care of us all week. We did morning and afternoon boat dives
and the morning drop-off dives, and we did 4 night dives from shore. Some
of our favorite sites of the week were: Valley of the Kings, Menagerie,
Marys Place, Johns Spot, 40 Foot Point, and Carib Point.

For photography, I took my DSLR camera underwater for the first time. I
used my Canon D40 in an Ikelite housing with dual Inon Z240 strobes. I used
2 lenses: Canon EF-S 60mm macro and Canon EF-S 10-22mm. I was extremely
pleased with the results. You can download the slideshow (long and large 
about 12 minutes and 65MB in size) from the scuba shows page on our website (no www in front)
or view photos at I ordered all my UW
camera gear from Backscatter and they were great with making
recommendations and then walking me through questions I had regarding the
set-up  I highly recommend them.

We will return to CocoView again in the next few years. The diving is
exceptional and among our favorite places in the Caribbean. The only real
negative is the size of the resort  not a problem this time, but you can
find yourself there with 65-70 divers that youre not crazy about (like we
experienced in 2005).
