Scuba Diving in Honduras

This spectacular tropical paradise is the smallest of the 3 main Bay Islands, Utila is off the North Coast of Honduras in the Western Caribbean. Though Spanish is the official language in the country, this hidden gem is predominantly English speaking. Just off the beaten path, Utila is already known worldwide as being one of the best spots in the world to learn to Scuba Dive. Crystal clear Caribbean seas, white sandy beaches and the worlds second biggest coral reef ensure this world class destination is hard to beat. Not quite on the normal tourist route, many back packers find this sanctuary a welcome place to stop, relax, dive and party, something the island has become famous for. Divers and party goers are not the only regular visitors, the harmless yet spectacular whale sharks are frequently encountered, along with turtles, dolphins, eagle rays and a whole myriad of incredible marine life.

A dive holiday on the Útila can be taken as a holiday in its own right, but also ties in very well with one of the many liveaboard itineraries operating in this large and fantastically diverse region.
