Comments This is our second trip to Cooper Island and we are planning a third one in 2005. As we experienced last year, the hotel staff at Cooper Island Beach Club and the dive staff at Caribbean Sail have a central focus on providing excellent customer service. Everyone went out of their way to ensure we were enjoying our vacation.

Cooper Island is a quaint, out of the way, destination; free from the usual tourist trappings. You're awakened every morning by a gentle breeze and the sound of tropical birds singing outside your room. You walk out of your room that looks over the bay towards Tortola. You usually see moored sail boats and clear skies stretching to the horizon. After you take your time enjoying your breakfast, you can take a leisurely stroll to the dock where the dive boat meets you around 9:00 AM. Options for dive locations and profiles are usually the diver's choice. The boats are clean, modern and well organized. This really is a diver's paradise.
