The visibility was good for divers but down for snorkelers.  The deeper you
got the visibility improved and would differ from early am to pm. Went on
the shark feed dive with WAIHUKA dive center arranged by Cocoview which was
the best day of the trip. Actually very safe and relaxing after the initial
shock of all the reef sharks in one area.  After 22 I shopped counting.
Large grouper and a curious green moray swam in and out of our legs as the
sharks were only an arm length away.  Well worth the money.  

No big fish but abundance of tropicals that were fairly large.  Abundance
of schooling fish, healthy barracuda and morays, parrot fish, drums,
soldiers, eagle rays, all of which seemed well fed for their size. A whale
shark was spotted from one of the dive boats.  Four dive boats, well
maintained, leave from the dock at 8:30am and 2pm to different sites and
then do drop off dives on return. Cocoview wall and Newman's wall and the
Prince Albert wreck are right off the resort to dive anytime day or night. 
The coral and sponges were brilliant with all differing colors which made
photography picture perfect.

Staff were great both at CocoView and Dockside.  Food remained awesome the
whole week. We had a Bungalow over the water which was great until we lost
power and electricity several times over the week. We also lost water to
the rooms several times during the week but recovered quickly.  No phones,
No TV and NO Bosses was great,  if you are into that type of trip. I am.  

Used 80 cu. ft steel tanks, (Nitrox available) but lack of 63 tanks for
some of us needs to be considered. If you did not have a dive partner you
tagged along with the group.  The boats were not crowded and easy off and
on with little effort.  Overall, a well run operation.
