   The dive crew, Marco, divemaster and Gringo, boat captain  were
outstanding.  I quickly learned to stay close to Marco because when he set
out to find something specific, he did so doggedly and usually produce
results.  He promised to show us a pair of white sea horses, something I
hadn't seen before.  I have the photos.

   Visibility was generally in the 60'-100' range.  Roatan abounds with
small fish and critters.  Banded coral shrimp abounded in the barrel and
tube sponges.  Green morays and lobster were plentiful.

   Coco View wall with a proliferation of various colorful corals and the
wreck of the Prince Albert are great beach dives only a short swim from the
resort.  When returning from a boat dive there is often the option of being
dropped off at the Coco View or Newman's wall to a do a third dive to what
would have been a two tank boat dive.

   The resort is a typical dedicated dive operation.  The accommodations
are not posh but they are comfortable.  The rooms are air conditioned. 
However, we found that keeping the doors and windows    open gave us enough
of a breeze so that the air conditioner wasn't needed.  The room had two
comfortable double beds.  there was a porch outside overlooking the ocean
and when not diving we found it pleasant to sit there and watch the

   Food is not gourmet, but is is good and there was always plenty of it. 
Staff was a bit slow at times but always friendly and eager to please.

I was very impressed at staff response to my particular emergency.  Upon
departure, when I arrived at the airport, I discovered that one of my bags
was not with the others.  I was particularly upset because the bag in
question contained all of my dive lights.  When all of the bags were
claimed by owners, one remained which was vaguely similar to mine.  The
ladies from Coco View who were coordinating the departure looked all over
the terminal for my bag and when unsuccessful took identity from the bag
remaining and queried all the airlines to see if that person had checked
luggage.  Sure enough, they discovered bags checked in the name of that
person.  That person was located and she was able to verify that the
remaining bag was hers and that she must have checked someone else's bag.
The Coco View ladies went over to the specific airline counter and did not
budge from the counter (about one hour) until my bag was retrieved.

   Without their assistance, I would have returned home minus dive lights
and various other items of equipment.  Needless to say, Their patience,
dedication and persistence was exemplary.
