Utila Dive Lodge provided basic lodging, good food, and terrific diving.
The deck over the water was a great place to relax in the evenings. Queen
Ann's hermit crab races ended the week. The Sea Sprite, with Willy at the
controls, was large enough to accomodate our group comfortably, even in
rough water. Safety sausages were provided mid-week for all divers. Dive
sites were plentiful, but with so many dive operations on the island, some
were inaccessible. On the plus side, the island is small enough that you
can get to all sites fairly easily. Rough water made some of the trips seem
much longer than they were. Definitely stop by the Jade Seahorse and the
Whale Shark Oceanic Research Institute while on the island. Both are worth
the stop.
