From time to time, we like to update our readers on good diving opportunities and operators to avoid, and to improve the decorum of our fellow divers. So, have a look:

Honduras is a dive destination undamaged by this year's hurricanes, with lots of living coral and tropicals, even whale sharks). On Utila, Eutopia Village is getting good marks from our readers. Frank Rudecoff (Carbondale, CO), there in April, says it's "a beautiful, well-managed resort. The valet diving service was excellent. The accommodations are clean, spacious and air-conditioned. The meals were normally in a beautiful dining room overlooking the water. A few times tables were set in the shallow end of the pool and we ate while seated in the water. The diving is recovering from overfishing, so fish were sparse at a few sites. We swam with whale sharks on many occasions ... Elizabeth Hilla, (Arlington VA), there is September, says "It's a small resort that caters to divers with a feel of a remote, rustic resort. Our divemaster, Chris, was amazing, and the dive staff takes care of everything. We saw eagle rays, morays, turtles, sharks, stingrays, lobsters, various crabs, and the usual Caribbean fish. The corals are in good shape and varied. We saw all kinds of small creatures, which Chris was excellent at pointing out. We got to snorkel with dolphins about 15 minutes." www.utopiautila.com

And, the Roatan Aggressor is being well received. Don Wikle (Atlanta), aboard in June, says: the previous Utila Aggressor has been refurbished stem to stern. Dive sites were off Roatan and Utila, as well as open water seamounts. There was one planned shark dive, which was so good, the divers voted to do it again. There is plenty of variety with reef, wall, and wrecks. The crew and service were among the best. Rooms are small, but nice ... Danee Hubbs (Seattle), aboard in July, says "I rented equipment, and the crew set it up for me near the entry; I have some arthritis problems, and the crew could not have made it any easier for me. We dove Cayos Cochinos and most sites in the area except for Utila. Marine life was plentiful, and a special treat was the millions of silversides as we dove Dolphin Caves. Food was incredible and included organic greens from Guanaja, plenty of local food and flavors, and decadent desserts!" www.aggressor.com ...
