There are over eighty stunning dive sites in Utila and it's no surprise the area has a reputation for offering world-class diving. Here are a few of the gems on offer.

  • Haliburton Wreck: a lovely cargo ship sunk in the 1990s in a community-led project to create an artificial reef in the local waters. It's about 30m down and is intact with very little corrosion
  • The Lighthouse: a diverse site on a gorgeous reef surrounding Utila's lighthouse, offering beautiful gardens with gorgonians and rope sponges, along with octopus and spiny lobster on night dives as they come out to feed in the darkness.
  • Black Hills: a sea mound covered with coral and offering currents bringing in a range of fish including Creole Wrasse, King Mackerel and Barracuda, with moray eels also to be found around this popular dive site
  • CJ's Drop Off: located in the Turtle Harbour Marine Reserve, this wall-focused dive site offers stunning brain coral and weaving canyons capped with gorgonians, along with moray eels, barracudas and sea turtles.

Overall, Utila's diverse reef landscape and abundance of dive sites means that divers of all levels can enjoy the stunning marine environment, with lots of deep dives available for advanced divers.

Qué ver

Many divers heading out on boats report seeing schools of flying fish, a great introduction above the water before you get down below.

The island is well-known for large spotted eagle rays, who frequent sandy areas and coral walls. You could also see French angelfish, barracudas, turtles and tongue snails.

Since Utila's underwater landscape features stunning sea mountains, expect to see filter-feeding fish as well as larger fish looking for a meal.

One of the jewels in the Utila crown is whale sharks: you can swim with these majestic giants - a mesmerising experience - in specific seasons. Utila is one of the only places in the world where whale sharks pass so close to shore and can be seen - conditions permitting - year-round.

Cómo llegar

International flights do not go to Utila directly. You'll need to take a flight to one of three airports: Golosón International Airport (LCE), Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport (RTB) or Ramón Villeda Morales International Airport (SAP).

Golosón International Airport (LCE) is closest to Utila, located on the coast in the small city of La Ceiba. From here you can take a ferry across to Utila.

Ramón Villeda Morales International Airport (SAP) - located further inland - offers commercial flights direct to Utila. If you don't want to stay over in San Pedro Sula, your international flight will need to land early enough to ensure you have enough time to get through customs and pick up your bags. If you don't want to fly to Utila, public transport is available to take you to La Ceiba, where you can get the ferry across to Utila.

From Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport (RTB) - located on Roatan - you have a range of options to get to Utila, including ferry, charter boat, afternoon scheduled flight or charter plane. 

Importante: tu viaje, a cualquiera que sea el destino, se puede ver afectado por condiciones como la seguridad, requerimientos de entrada y salida, estado de salud, leyes y cultura local, desastres naturales y clima.
