The smallest of the major Bay Islands, Utila enjoys a reputation for world-class diving with over eighty stunning dive sites to be found around the extensive reefs.
If you’re looking to spot a whale shark, it can be done all year, but the best chance is off the north shore of Utila from March to May and again from August to October. There are more than 300 identified fish species in Honduran waters. Divers frequently see dolphin, grouper, rays, barracuda, angelfish, butterfly fish, grunts, parrotfish, yellowtail snapper, horse-eye jack, octopus, lobsters, crabs and moray eels. Sharks of all shapes and sizes are sometimes seen on the reefs, and sea turtles stay in the shallows.
