Fifth fime at Laguna Beach Resort, snorkeled with whale shark 4 trip out of
5.    Boat captain Wagner will go out of his way to find a whale shark on
our way to the first dive site and also during the surface interval.  
Great thing about Utila is the diversity of marine life.    We've seen pair
of spotted eagle rays, turtles, seahorse, frogfish, lettuce leaf slug, lots
of large angelfish, large green moray, and so many others!  
Diving is done mainly around the island, towards the north side of the
island is better.  We dove the pinnacles and the diving is excellent,
schooling fish like jacks and creole wrasse.    Their house reef is also
very good.   We've seen 14 or more lobsters hanging out, biggest lobster
taking a leisurely walk, jawfish, lots of juvenile fish, turtles, and many
more.   Each dive yields something new.   

Dive boat is roomy and fast, bungalows are over the water on the lagoon
side of the peninsula.  You get plenty of food and the BBQ lobster night
they had twice during our stay was great.   There isn't much of a night
life at the resort, but we like it that way.    

We've been to many destinations in the Caribbean, but Laguna Beach Resort
is the only place we keep on going back.    Great service, great diving and
with 3 dives a day plus unlimited shore diving, great price for what you

No-seeums may be a problem if there isn't much breeze, but as long as you
have bug juice (Cactus Juice and Deet product works best for us), it should
not be a problem.   We have recommended Laguna Beach to all the divers
we've met.   They really take very good care of us!
