Why We’re a Great Place for Underwater Photos
Underwater Photography - Souvenirs You Can Keep
Roatan’s fringing coral reef is part of the world’s second largest and also one of the world’s most beautiful and unique - a haven for snorkelers, divers and underwater photographers of any ability. Coco View Resort is an excellent place to perfect your photography skills. Our daily boat trips to Roatan’s best dive sites, and our un-limited shore diving give you abundant opportunities to get great pictures!
During your time in Roatan, you’ll likely have many face-to-face scuba diving encounters with weird, wonderful, and colorful creatures as you explore the island’s majestic underwater world. Dawn to dark, and after, the underwater landscape and marine life surrounding Cocoview will always present you with interesting and beautiful subject material for your photos.
In addition to two boat dives per day, CoCo View’s “Front Yard” offers Roatan’s only 24/7 shore diving, just a few fin kicks from the resort. Two pristine coral walls and a 140’ wreck provide ample photographic opportunities, both day and night.
Since touching the island’s coral and other sea life is illegal, as is removing “souvenirs” from the water, CoCo View’s exceptional underwater photography services offer you a way to bring home lasting mementos of your scuba diving trip in Roatan.

Whale Sharks at CoCo View
Divers at CoCo View got an early Christmas present Sunday morning. During the morning surface interval they SWAM WITH WHALE SHARKS. There appeared to have been 2 in the immediate area, one approximately 15 feet long and the other around 30 feet long. It was an amazing encounter! We will post more pictures and some videos as they are available. These photos were taken by Mike Reimers.
Photography Above the Waterline
Coco View guests also enjoy photographing the exotic Caribbean flowers and wildlife on this island paradise. Whether you are a professional or a beginner you can bring home stunning pictures of your stay at Coco View Resort.
