If you want to see whale sharks, this is the operation; they will put you
in the right place.  Literally one of the two people in the world to verify
whale shark sitings is one of the owners.  Unlike many other islands
(including Roatan) Utila is small enough that you can easily cover ALL of
the dive sites around the island and Deep Blue hits all of them.  3 boat
dives every day, usually one on each side.  Unlimited shore diving isn't
just an ad, they have a prime reef right in front of the resort.  Realize
that Utila is known as one of the cheapest places in the world to get a
certification, even through Instructor.  Deep Blue has a dive school like
all of the other operations if this is your focus, but if you just want to
relax and dive, the resort is separate.  At the resort, no training briefs
and students, all diving.  You can do specialties, but not to the detriment
of others.  Resort is not in the town so it has greater security.  With 10
total private rooms with A/C, you are recognized as a person and your needs
and desires are heard and respected.  Nitrox available by dive or by week.
Wonderful owners and staff.  Provide snacks on boat, 1 hr surface
intervals.  Good corals, smaller fish, etc., limited larger fish/deep
pelagics on this trip.  Awesome experience to swim with a whale shark, then
go back to the resort for tuna sashimi from the tuna boil over the whale
