Utila is just 11 km long and 4 km at its widest and surrounded by vast coral reefs with prolific undersea life. The smallest of the major islands in The Bay Islands group, Utila is renowned as being one of the least expensive and most beautiful places in the world for scuba diving.

From the Mayan Indians, through the years spent as a British Colony, to the present day as part of Honduras, Utila provides a rich and diverse cultural experience with it's unique blend of British, American and Spanish heritages making Utila a Caribbean Island which is still a largely undiscovered and unspoiled paradise.

With over 50 different dive sites to choose from including caves and numerous wrecks (such as the famous Halliburton) scuba diving around Utila Island is always interesting and never crowded. Utila is also famous for divers encountering the Whale Shark migrating through the waters of Utila. The Whale Shark is the world's largest fish. The slow moving Whale Shark is a harmless zooplankton, snapper egg and shrimp eating fish which grows up to 12-18 meters in length.
