Explore diving around the The Mango Inn

What to see

At the healthy reefs off Roatán, expect to find a myriad of colorful reef fish like parrotfish, angelfish, surgeonfish and also large black grouper. Along the reef amongst gorgonian sea fans and other soft and hard corals, look for moray eels, crabs and lobsters. Keep an eye out for resting nurse sharks around the reef or eagle rays passing in the blue. For more pelagic marine life, head out to Cayos Cochinos to see schooling barracuda, trevally and snapper along with Caribbean reef sharks, sea turtles and sometimes stingrays.

At Útila, whale sharks are the main draw during the right season but don’t look past the sea mounts and walls which are teeming with activity. Guanaja is also known for more pelagic marine life and you might find more sharks and sea turtles in this area. Dive sites closer to the island feature critters like nudibranch, crustaceans and seahorses.

Utila offers varied diving just minutes from the dive shop including shallow coral reefs interspersed with sand patches on the south side of the island, and more adventurous dive sites the north side. 

The dive center offers a wide range of PADi training including recreational, pro-level, specialities, technical, sidemount and rebreather courses. 

A separate dive boat is dedicated solely to resort divers, and group sizes are kept small. As a result, boats are never crowded and dives can be arranged for the morning or afternoon to fit around other vacation activities.
