    Looks pretty nice. It looks very worry free. No driving, just stroll up to the dive boat and dive the house reef.

    Clernix - you can get the best idea what CocoView is all about by their current video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=pNIyzEIeKgs

    this promo really does give you a full rundown...

    yes, when we were there in 2008 it was the rainy season, rained every day. When you read my report you will hear all about it and how it didn't stop us at all, AND we can't wait to go back! It is a DIVER only resort, meaning if you don't dive or snorkel, there is zero reason to go there. No kids, no pool, no tv in room. Dive eat dive eat dive eat... 24/7 unlimited diving. And people who go there do just that... It is like a liveaboard, on land.

    if you have a family traveling with you, with kids or non-divers, I would recommend Anthony's Key Resort on the other side of island.

    Also - another note about water.
    On our last trip, one of the first days the boat was going to do the "Drop Off" at Newmans Wall. We arrived at that buoy, and the water looked lime green! Everyone on the boat, including the DM, wrinkled up their noses and said yuck. We did not. Everyone but us opted to just ride boat back into dock.... we geared up and said "drop us over the Prince Albert wreck". The boat capt and DM both thought we were nuts, but dropped us in. Well, water was LIME green and 20' vis, for about 20' down. Then it opened up clear as a bell, the whole wreck was visable. We both laughed underwater at how silly everyone else on the boat was!!! Great dive on the wreck, then we headed back up the path and walked out of the water in front of Resort. A few of them met us there, at the Clubhouse... and we told them all about it. LOL
    After that, everyone on the boat followed us on the DropOff dives. We pointed out the 2 seahorses we found (they had all missed) as well as other things along the way. Seriously -- don't let low vis deter you from diving, ever. You never know how it might change while underwater, as well as what you might be missing.
