If you like adventure and want to experience something new and different in the Caribbean then you will love Utila! The crystal clear warm waters, the unhurried atmosphere and the friendly nature of the people will all combine to give you an experience, which you'll never forget Diving in and around Utila has rightly become legendary amongst divers who like to break away from 'production line' diving.
Things tend to move at a more relaxed pace in the Bay Islands and in particular on Utila. Dive boats are rarely crowded and dive sites are strictly limited to one dive boat per buoy. You will never experience the feeling that there are more divers than fishes! Thereefs are packed with life and the corals are in pristine condition. It is not uncommon for divers to play with manta rays, swim with dolphins and gasp with wonder as the biggest fish in the sea, the incredible whale shark, goes by.
On the day of arrival you will be greeted at the ferry harbour by the dive staff, shown your room and given an orientation of the island activities and of the dive sites or courses you will be doing. You’ll typically do two dives a day. The day prior to your diving, you decide whether you want to dive in the morning or afternoon. Between dives you’ll hang out on the boat where a snack and water will be served.
Fundiving Utila Island Extended The longer option with 8 dives spread out on 5 days of diving and 2 day of resting, and 5 nights of accommodation, the dive sites will vary depending on weather and experience level. One dive can be done as a night dive without extra charge.
Your resort is the perfect escape between diving, partying and swinging in hammocks. It is rare to find a guest in the resort that is not a diver. You will find them hanging out in the restaurant famous for its tasty pizzas, or cooling off in the swimming pool in the hot afternoons. The resort has got Wifi, internet café and a laundry service…
The easiest way to reach Utila is to get yourself to La Ceiba by plane. Then catch the ferry “MV Utila Princess” leaving twice a day from the port of La Ceiba on Mainland Honduras. Connecting flights to La Ceiba is possible from San Pedro Sula or the capital Tegucigalpa. If you want to make it really easy and convenient, you can fly directly to Utila from La Ceiba - this might cost you a little extra, but it can be cheaper than staying a night in La Ceiba. If you do need to spend a night in La Ceiba, the hotel “Rainbow Village” found just around the corner from the airport is very friendly and safe. The hotel and transfer should be booked in advance.
Soft drinks and snack on boat.

If you want a longer itinerary, you can add extra days of diving and accommodation upon booking.
