Utila Dive Center
Utila Dive Centre is an award winning PADI 5-star Gold Palm Resort and CDC offering expert guidance and professional instruction. As well as offering tuition, up to three boat dives are offered through the week (Sun-Thurs) on board 'Old Tom' for qualified divers. Highlights include thrilling drifts, wrecks and whale sharks during their annual migration (Mar-May).
Utila borders the Mesoamerican barrier reef system, home to hundreds of fish, turtles and plenty of beautiful corals. There are over 100 local dive sites including pinnacles, caves and wrecks such as the Halliburton.
The majority of dive sites frequented are on the south side as they’re more protected and accessible. The southern wall drops to 30 metres. Here you’ll see black corals, turtles and spotted eagle rays. The currents on the west end of the island allow for some exhilarating drift diving for experienced divers. Deeper diving can be found on the north side in the Turtle Harbor Marine Reserve. CJs, Drop-Off and Duppy Waters are famed for their vertigo inducing views into the deep.
