Latest Dive trip & Reveiw: Coco View, Roatan Honduras

Roatan, Honduras
Coco View Resort

Operation Rating A+

This Resort is the 4th we have visited on Roatan, and quickly became our favorite! They ahve a very high rate of returning guests, dubbed "Coco Nuts", some returning up to and in at least one case, over one hundred times!
Coco View is mostly a dedicated dive resort, but does offer great options for non-diving group members with fabulous snokeling and great setup for doing not much of anything. The food is well above average with 3 buffett style meals each day served in the large open dining room.
Dive boats were well setup with CocoViews exclusive mid-boat entry really making rough seas boat entry easy. Dive masters and capatins could not have been better, having BCs and regulators set up and waiting for you on your assigned boat. This is our recommended Roatan destination. United and Delta are the most convenient from the west with a single connection. More details to follow.

Next Certifications - PADI Open Water Diver course at Scuba Utah.

Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI, the dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.

Why PADI Open Water?

As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected rating in the world, you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. If you already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified, check with your instructor to see how credit from these courses may apply to the open water program.

What do I need to start?

Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available. Minimum age: 10

What is included in the price of the Open Water course?

The Open Water course fee includes your instruction, certification fee, and all Scuba gear (BC, regulators, tanks, wetsuit, hood, and weights).

What is not included?

The course fee does not include personal gear (snorkel, fins, mask, booties, gloves), transportation, food, accomodations, books and materials (Open Water Crew Pack), or site fees (such as for The Homestead). For more information, see the SCUBA UTAH Student Handbook.

Depending on the type and quality of gear you choose, personal gear usually runs between $150 and $300. Note that cheaper gear available for purchase at sporting goods stores may not be adequate for Scuba diving needs! The Open Water Crew Pack is approximately $55. Most classes will be done at either The Homestead (by Heber, UT), or Blue Lake (by Wendover, UT). The Homestead charges a site fee, approximately $20 per day.

What will I do?

Throughout the course, you'll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives.

How long will it take?


PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.

What will I need?
