Comments The good news is that this Aggressor boat is great and should get even better with the new boat to replace this one soon. Food was hot, towels were hot, coco was hot, and the HOT tub
was always full and hot!! This is the rainy season and it did rain most of the two weeks we
were in Honduras. Capt.Eddy made good on the sites we could reach without too much motion sickness. Healthy corals, black coral, pillar sponges. Many types of sea horses. Despite the weather lots of things to see. Even newborn turtles while surfacing from a night dive. Except the elusive WHALE SHARK... Best time to be there would be in March. We spent a week on land also in Utila. More of the same. Would
like to return next time when the Laguna Beach Resort is open, they always take a break in November. I took a visit to this wonderful resort and it's a nice set up for divers and land lovers looking to relax by the pool, do some bone fishing or enjoying a nice sunset. I would
like to report that all of our luggage made it to our destination without incident and be sure
that your travel arrangements include the charter plane flight from SAP to Utila. Avoid the
bus trips and ferry boats. Copan Ruins are a good side trip if that's your interest.
