Deep Blue Resort by Steve Fox
Surprisingly not much is actually known about the world’s largest fish. Whale Sharks are protected in Honduras and Utila is one of the few places that they can be seen all year round. A scuba diving vacation with Deep Blue Utila will provide you with the opportunity of seeing and even snorkeling with these awesome creatures.

Over the next five years, our Utila Whale Shark Research Project will provide new information to add to the slowly growing knowledge base. Photographs taken of the Utila whale sharks are being added to ECOCEAN, an international whale shark database. In multiple years whale sharks have been tracked from Utila through three different countries, Honduras, Belize and Mexico, Utila Sharks have also been see in the waters of Florida.
To help us find out more about them, join one of our Whale Shark Research Weeks!

UtilaScuba diving on Utila is rich and varied with more than 90 buoyed dive sites around the island. The North side of Utila is part of the second largest barrier reef in the world with awe inspiring sheer walls dropping to over 1,000 meters. The South side of Utila consists mainly of shallow fringing reefs, the top of the reef at around 5 meters dropping down to between 30 & 40 meters. Then of course during the surface intervals the whale shark search is on. Scuba diving heaven!!
