DIVING AT COCO VIEW

There is so much to do on Roatan! Zipping through the treetops, staring down a shark, playing with dolphins, golfing along the edge of the sea…these are just some of the Honduras activities available to you during your visit at CoCo View Resort.

Roatan is a beautiful island, with much more to offer than just the incredible diving that attracts most guests to CoCo View.

Above water, lush jungles, mountainous terrain, stunning beaches are an adventure waiting to happen.

Shark Diving
Sharks play an important role in the health of the marine ecosystem, helping control fish and marine mammal populations. So you don’t have to be an adrenaline junkie to scuba dive with Roatan’s sharks. Others have actually described their Roatan shark diving experiences as “awe-inspiring” and “surreal.”

During your shark diving excursion, you will dive with female Caribbean Reef Sharks among beautiful hard and soft corals at a depth of 60-70 feet. Clear visibility, usually reaching 80 feet or more, offers an excellent view of the sharks, which are typically 6-9 feet long and weigh several hundred pounds each.

After you’ve had time to observe the sharks, a snack of fish in a bucket is often presented to them at a safe distance from the diving group, where you can then watch the resulting feeding frenzy. The sharks are never handled or fed individually. When the sharks have dispersed, you will typically have time to move around and explore the site before returning to the boat.

Eco Tour with Tim & Barb Blanton
If you’re more of an off-the-beaten path adventurer, we highly recommend Tim and Barb’s Eco Tour – a great way to see the island from a local’s perspective during your travels through Roatan. Join Tim and Barb Blanton as they take guests on tours of Roatan’s less explored nooks and crannies.

See the Iguana Farm, Mangrove Tour, Punta Gorda and Paya Indian Sites. We promise an interesting and fun experience!

Roatan Canopy Tour
Roatan zip line canopy tours are a family-friendly activity, perfect for young and old alike. As you swing through the trees, the views of sandy beaches, tropical jungle, and stunning coastline are unbeatable. Platforms connect the zip lines, and at each stop, you can observe wildlife in its natural habitat.

Bring your camera – this unique tour of Roatan is a totally exhilarating trip and one you won’t want to forget!

Dolphin Encounters

Have you ever dreamed of a dolphin encounter – swimming, snorkeling, or diving with dolphins? When you stay at CoCo View Resort, we can arrange for an off-site dolphin encounter at the Roatan Institute for Marine Science (RIMS), a facility built to study and preserve the island’s marine ecosystem, where you can meet and swim with these engaging animals.

Here are the options:
Roatan Dolphin Encounter: Make a new friend as you touch, kiss, and play with a dolphin. A trained naturalist will introduce you to a resident dolphin, describing its characteristics, anatomy, and behaviours.
Dolphin Snorkel: Experience a dolphin encounter like no other as you play with dolphins at the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences. During this unstructured encounter with Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins, the naturally curious dolphins are free to interact with you as they choose.
Dolphin Dive: Scuba dive in the open ocean with the friendliest dolphins in the Caribbean. 2-3 dolphins will visit you on the sandy bottom of the ocean floor, frolicking and playing with you on their own terms before returning home to RIMS.
Trainer for a Day: Leave CoCo View and spend the entire day learning about dolphins, interacting with them, and working one-on-one with them to initiate trained behaviours.
