Coco View Dive Resort - Roatan, Honduras

Coco View Resort

SOLD OUT! Our fourth year in a row to go hang out in paradise! This is our customers favorite place to dive. We will keep coming back here as long as you want us to keep booking it!
To hold your spot, all we need is a $50 deposit now, another $50 in 30 days with the remainder paid 60 days before the trip. That gives you a long time to pay the trip out. And Coco View values our business so much, that they are giving us Value Season rates again this year, even though we are taking the trip the last part of High Season.
We have sold about 1/2 the resort! The sales tax rate is the same this year at 19% and we are still getting low season rates. $1314 for Over the Water and $1264 for Ocean Front for divers. Non-divers are $100 less. The rates for singles in a room are the same, $400 for Over Water and $200 for Ocean Front.
Remember, the above price includes everything except alcohol and soft drinks. There are 2 two tank boat dives and unlimited shore diving, a beautiful air conditioned room with private balcony, great meals every day, friendly office staff, room staff and exceptional boat staff.

April 19 - 28, 2018:

Beqa Lagoon Resort - Fiji

Beqa Lagoon Resort

The cost is $3281 pp based on double occupancy. For land only it is $1799 pp. Trip includes:

We started out with 12 villas (called bures) reserved in our name. Six of them were Beachfront and six of them are Koi rooms. The resort only has 25 bures on property so I may have a hard time adding rooms later. If you are interested in joining us on this troical vacation, you may want to get your deposit ($500) in now to hold your place! The Beachfront rooms are already booked. As of May 16th, I have four Koi rooms available. Once those are booked, I can see about getting more rooms if neccessary.
I must turn in group deposits on July 5th, October 21st and our final payment is due on February 21, 2018. This trip is non-refundable due to the fact that part of your money is going toward your airline ticket from LAX to NAN in Fiji.

Cat Ppalu - Nassau Bahamas.
Cat Ppalu

What a great trip! The crew on the Cat Ppalu was just awesome. Captain Carlis was great and such a nice man. Caitlyn the chef was amazing and Jeff the divemaster was very knowledgeable and also very funny. And I can't leave out the guy that fixed anything that went wrong, James the engineer. Who also has great taste in music.
We were all under the impression that the Cat Ppalu went all the way down to the Southern Exumas where the swimming pigs were and that we would be doing a shark feed dive. Two things that they do not do. Jeff the divemaster did not want to break the news to us while we were all signing the paperwork at first. I even asked where the shark feed liability release was and he said that the one realise was good for everything. He let the Captain tell us later. But we had so many great dives it was ok.
The last day we did the Blue Hold dive and I have never seen so many sharks in my life! After looking at videos and pictures that were taken, we figure there must have been close to 300 sharks. It was amazing. Best dive of the week, for me. Jimmy might disagree because he was the only one to see a Hammerhead shark on one of the first dives. And the boat was great. It was so nice to have your own room! I don't think I could go back to the Blackbeards Cruise and the dormitory style rooms after having my own room with a sink. Not to mention three heads with push button flush and two showers big enough to dress in. The Cat Ppalu has enough room for everyone to sit at the table to eat together and you can sit inside between dive sites in the air conditioning if you want. We would highly recommend this trip if you are looking for a liveaboard in the Bahamams. We hope to do it again next year.

Coco View Dive Resort - Roatan, Honduras

Coco View Resort

What a wonderful time we had this year!

So many great things happened. We had 21 customers/friends from our dive shop join us on this trip! Casey got his 100th dive and finished up his Divemaster while we were here. Dr. C did a DSD and loved it so much he had me get him an Open Water eLearning code...STAT! His two sons got certifications, Aarav did his Open Water pool and check out dives and Kahan did his AOW. When Casey wasn't helping with class, he and his wife Amy both did their Wreck Specialty. Jimmy and Casey took a few of our guests on the Shark Feed, which turned out to be a hit. I think this has to be my favorite group that we have taken to Coco View so far as far as everyone just having a good time with everyone. Dr C could barely snorkel at the start of the trip and every body was so helpful and encouraging to him. And he found lots to do while we were off diving. He would go into to town to see how the people lived. He was very interested in learning as much as he could about Roatan and her people. We just had a great group.

Anthony's Key - Roatan, Honduras

Anthony's Key

Had a good time checking out a different dive spot in Roatan. If you are looking for a place on the island with something to do other than just diving, this is it. They only have 3 dives a day so you have plenty of time to head into West End to do some shopping or just check out some of the local scenery. Nice place if you want to take your children with you.
