The smallest of the Bay Islands, Utila offers a tropical paradise, a colourful and varied marine life and great value for money.

The area is famous whale shark encounters as they migrate through the channel annually from January to April on their way to Belize. From the largest fish in the sea to the smallest critters, there are plenty of subjects here for underwater photographers. What's more, it is not uncommon to encounter eagle and manta rays, as well as dolphins, during your week of diving. Suitable for divers of all abilities, Utila is a great place to learn to dive but also to further your diving education.
