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.
