As recommended by New York State, we will be doing our part for the community by switching our hours to appointment only for the next two weeks. Please note, we will still be around to answer the phone and emails or meet one-on-one if needed.
That is the motto at CocoView Resort and it is exactly what we did. Many of the group did 4 dives a day with delicous meals in between. This is definitly one of our favorite places to go so here are some details on the trip!
Robert & Gringo might be the best dive crew we have ever had. Robert is one of the most entertaining and friendly boat captians and Gringo always lead the group with a slow easy pace.
The diving was always full of exciting things and Gringo is an expert at finding little creatures. We even saw 5 seahorses on one dive! Shore diving has a bit of a shallow swim over grass beds before reaching any depth or reefs, but then you had the world at your fingertips. From shore you reach two different reef walls, a giant ship wreck, and airplane rubble pile! Truly unlimited diving for everyone!
The CoCoView resort sit on its own little island which provides such peace and quiet with yet plenty of space to roam. Non-divers on the trip were able to enjoy comfortable sun bathing, beach walks, and absolutely amazing snorkeling.
The entire place it set up with divers in mind, so all the room shave clothes lines on the porches and there is a full garage with cubbies for everyones dive gear. The staff were all very nice and accomdating as well.

We are still on a high from the fantastic diving in Cozumel! There is a very good reason that Cozumel is one of the top dive locations in the world and it continues to prove that. So here are some details on the trip!
We were very impressed with boat crew we had at Scuba Club as well as our Divemaster Willy. The diving was wonderful as always with a lot of wildlife and corals. Shore diving can have a little bit of surge to deal with and it is mostly a flat, sandy area. Despite the lack of reef, there was a vast amount of wildlife off shore and you can always find some cool critters under the dock and around the small rubble pile. The night dive we did from the boat was loved by everybody and the shore night dives don’t disappoint either.
The resort itself is really designed for divers and lacks any large hangout spaces but there is some nice lounge chairs around the pool and in the sand as well as a lovely set of hammocks by the water's edge. It is a short walk into the main strip of town where there is lots of little shops to explore and places to eat or drink. If you are looking more adventure, a taxi ride further into the island can take you the Mayan Ruins of San Gervasio which is a cool experience.
Our Course Director Mike Rogan did a short interview with The Weather Channel live from the ice while diving at the Lake George Winter Carnival in February 2019
We did ice diving demonstrations and courses over the course of three different weekends. Checkout the photo album to see all the fun and be sure to stop by next year to watch it in person, or maybe join in the fun as well!
We had so much getting to dive in the National Aquarium and play with all the amazing tropical fish. We will be going back again before the summer starts!
We had so much getting together with old dive buddies and making new friends by getting together on Sunday mornings for a couple of fun dives!
Join us next year for some or all of the Sunday dives and see just how many local dive sites and local divers there are! Stay tuned for the schedule.
We would like to congratulate all the new divers that got certified this summer as well as all those who furthered their education with Advanced, Rescue and Specialty certifications!
