Comments We chose this resort because their website showed a good set up for shore diving. With two boat dives a day, we wanted to maximize our number of dives & have the freedom to do our own diving. Well much to our surprise and delight CoCoView does what they call "drop offs" in the morning & in the afternoon. As they near the resort, the drop you off on one of the two walls (Newman's Wall in the morning & CoCo View Wall in the afternoon). Since we were staying for more than a week, & in order to not see the same section of the wall every day, we chose to start deep & then each day start 10 feet shallower. By the end of the trip, our last dive was near the top of the wall at about 20 feet. Both walls are fabulous, but Coco View wall is my favorite. It's more vertical, feels more lush, with overhangs and lots of nooks & crannies to find stuff.
We are not Saturday to Saturday kind of vacationers, we like to do 10 days or so arriving mid-week and leaving the following Friday or Saturday. CoCo View is definitely set up for the Sat. to Sat. folks. We thought we would be able to do a shore/check out dive that afternoon, but they require an orientation dive with a staff member. At the time I was a bit irritated; we arrived early afternoon & I wanted to get in the water! The next morning we met up with our dive master & did a shore dive in front of the resort. Had a great dive & saw an eagle ray four times (same one) during the course of the dive. They take you out to the wreck that sits in the channel in front of the resort & then orient you to both walls. Afterwards, I see why they do this, but at the the time I simply thought he was giving us the lay of the land for shore ... Subscribe to get the full story.
