Ride out was a bit rough, but you couldn't beat the view. Current was strong at the surface, once you got to 25-30 feet it was much better. I was terrified at the start of this dive, but by the time I got to the wall at about 65-70 feet I was calm. I was even the first one to... More

The shark dive with Waihuka Shark Dive in Roatan, Honduras with Sergio and Marcos is the best, most memorable and exceptional dive I have yet experienced!!!!! If you go to Roatan to dive you must not miss out on this dive. I highly recommend that you have your resort and dive shop schedule this shark dive while you are out... More

I went to Coccoview resort in Roatan and in the middle of the week, we went to the shark-dive in cara-cara reef. We went in the boat from Cocoview, it was larger than the boat from the shark dive store. I thought we would only go with the people from our resort but without any announcement, they placed another 8... More

The conditions were perfect,no current,good visibility and plenty of sharks. We booked thru CoCo View Dive Resort and took their boat which made it great instead of having to pack and carry gear,travel by van or bus.New dock which was very nice with restaurant area and briefing,post dive video watching.

It has always been my dream to swim with sharks and I finally got to do it! The sharks were beautiful and there were a lot of them. I absolutely enjoyed the experience. I gave four stars because I thought the staff could be a little more friendly.

Where else can you swim with 19 sharks within 1-3 feet of you? Make sure that you are experienced at diving as the dive shop is there to ensure overall safety but you are solely responsible for your equipment, air, safety stop, etc. The most difficult part of the dive is the entry and exit from the water. It just... More

I booked this dive through the dive shop we were diving with in West end (Island Divers). I was glad that I did it that way, the dive shop provided transportation to and from the dive shark site, loaded up and took care of all of our gear, and our dive master for the week was going to dive with...

thrilling and wonderful. There is current and u should be an experienced diver to go go back up the line and deal with people hanging on. It is one of the real memorable experiences . You get to swim amidst the reef sharks and get to pet a large grouper, who behaves like a friendly labrador. The DM is friendly... More

The sharks were cool to see, but I'd far prefer to see them in the wild. The whole setup was very bizzare and feeding the animals seems like it must not be best for eco-tourism. The fact that the sharks are an attraction helps protect them, but the operation is clearly setup with profit as it's main concern. The guide... 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).
