Great Dive, But Not the Best Experience Overall

I want to preface this brief review by saying that the dive itself is excellent and certainly worth doing (once)! The rest leaves a bit to be desired. We arrived at the time we... read more

You will hang out in very close quarters with about 10 sharks as they wait for their meal of fish-heads. Don't skip this! I felt quite safe the whole time (you stand with your back against a coral wall so that sharks cannot come up behind you).

Without doubt, this was the worst dive experience I have ever had in my entire life. For a brief period, I was considering purchasing a dive shop in Roatan. As a result, I stayed on the island for many months and had the chance to take in most of the sights. The shark dive, was of course a must do... More

The Roatan shark dive does chum the sharks up to 3 times a day and therefore take a keystone species which the Caribbean shark is out of the ecosystem. I saw footage of divers touching groupers and a shark biting a big piece out of the bucket, which ended up in the belly of the shark. Please be responsible and... More

The sharks were amazing! The boat going to the site wasn't all that great....be prepared to back flip off a slippery boat and getting on a little tough, but worth it for the adventure! There is a video for purchase after the dive, it is $50. They only take cash, so if you intend to buy such video take money... More

This was our first shark dive and if was very exciting. We were well informed on what to expect and got to see lots of Reef Sharks.

This will be one of the things I most remember from Roatan. It is incredible being so close to the sharks. There is also a large grouper who hangs out there that was pretty cool to see. I don't know where else you can experience something like this anywhere else in the world so it's not something to be missed... More

My entire experience with this dive shop and the people who run it was extremely disappointing. When our group showed up a little early, the owner flat out said he wasn't expecting us then walked away. Didn't make us feel welcome, nor did he try to tell us it would be okay for us to stay. After we waited on... More

My husband and I booked our shark dive through CoCo View, and both have nothing but good to say about this experience. There were only 6 of us diving on this day, so it was even more ideal. The boat ride out was about 15 minutes, and we were lucky that the seas were somewhat calm that day. The whole... More
