Even with the low ratings under the standard review for CocoView, I must
say that I love coming to this place. There was a dive group that enjoyed
being stupid, killing coral, and overall ruining the experience for
everyone else that tainted my view of the trip this year. Although,
immediate resolution of a rampant coral killer who was told numerous times
to stop by other boat divers including me was not met, I enjoy seeing the
owners and managers of Cocoview and the friends I make there. I loved this
place in 2002 and one customer made me not love it this year for his
selfish cruelty with regard to the sea and reefs. After not getting a
response from the divemasters on this, I brought this up with the
mangagement and feel that they followed up appropriately. The reefs are in
pretty good/great shape. Not much in swim-throughs like Cayman, but the
health of the corals is so much better than Cayman. Water was pretty choppy
but boats are made to accomodate that--unless you're an idiot. Great for
people who've done some diving--if it's choppy, maybe not so great for the
newvie--but then they've got the best shore diving to accomodate those
folks. The bar and social atmosphere is absolutely great--especially time
with the regulars. Again, non-divers may not be thrilled, but this is a
place for real divers. Bring bug spray. Food was good and bad. Got pretty
sick this year toward end of week--no one else had a problem. Felt great
last year at same place.
