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

I'll explain the "Couldn't dive" part of the title in a minute. First, I want to say that, contrary to what I read in other reviews, I thought the dive shop was good. The staff cared about our safety. I don't know anything about their boats, since we came over on one of our resort's boats. I couldn't do the... More

The underwater part of the trip was absolutely amazing, but the Shop, the staff, the treatment, and the equipment were really disappointing. Terrible dive center (don't think they are certified), the boat was not appropriate for diving equipment, it was just a regular boat, most of the equipment didn't function properly (my inflation mechanism of the BCD wasn't working properly),...

The underwater part of the experience is great, but this shop can't take credit for what the ocean provides. They provide nothing! The building was in shambles, the boat was a joke. We almost swamped in a grossly overcrowded boat that was not designed for the job. I will never dive with them again.

First let me say the sharks were amazing and the photos turned out great. BUT THE SHOP IS NOT TO BE USED, TRUSTED OR PURCHASED FROM. They don't have proper equipment, what they do have is poorly maintained, the staff doesn't help with ANYTHING(preparing gear, getting on and off the boat, underwater equipment failures, proper planning of the dive ratios,...

First boat trip ever where I prayed to be thrown to the Sharks! 6-8 foot swells and divers in full gear thrown off their seats to the bottom of the boat! Have done this twice and will never give them another penny!! The company boasts no diving accidents in their years of service....truly surprising! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SERVICE AT... More

Let the sharks be the least of your worries!! The dive shop and boat ride out to the site should be your worry! No safety straps to hold your tanks in place and the captain if you would call it that was going way to fast for the conditions of the water....very high waves at one point a wall of... More
