Comments [None]Due to Continental Airlines and inept immigration/customs in San Pedro Sula, we arrived 3 hours late. No one was there to meet us as promised. Our "charter" flight (SOSA) had left without us and after considerable scrambling, we arrived on the boat the next morning, missing the first dive opportunity. The crew and dive operation are excellent; they took good care of us. The air conditioning in our room was too good and we were cold all week. The food is plentiful, but bland and tasteless. The diving around Utila is so-so, and after 3 days of circling the island, we had to prod a bit to move to Roatan. Diving is better there, but we stayed close to land and had to compete, and sometimes dive with, the day boats. We never did go to a remote site, even though this is advertised on the web site. Even though fuel prices are now back down, we had to pay a "fuel surcharge" of $100 each. I would have been less upset about this if the fuel had actually been used to access the remote sites. As it turned out, I feel it was a rip-off. We only made 1 serious attempt to find whale sharks. Several were seen, but no good encounters. In spite of a excellent, friendly crew, this boat will probably disappoint serious divers.
