Destination Fact File

Dive from the Utila Aggressor and experience a selection of pelagic fish.

The Bay Islands off Honduras comprised of eight islands and 65 associated cays with the three northern islands of Utila, Roatan and Guanaja offering superb diving opportunities. These islands form part of the same barrier reef running parallel to the Central American Coast. Utila is world famous for whale sharks migrating through the oceanic channel between Roatan and the smaller Utila regularly. The opportunity to explore sheer walls, wrecks, pristine reefs start a few metres offshore and extend a short distance to the drop-offs, sea mounts, or banks. Most of the dive sites have yet to be explored by divers and you will have endless opportunities to visit them when you visit this destination on board Utila Aggressor.

Marine life around the islands is healthy and abundant, including sights of large groupers, moray eels, jacks, manta rays and whale sharks which are becoming rare in other areas of the Caribbean.

Honduras is a developing democratic state. The national language spoken in Honduras is Spanish, although English is often spoken in the Bay Islands. The climate has dry and wet seasons, and the general temperature is pleasant year round. The landscape differs from mountainous to coastal beaches and jungle lowlands.

If you are interested in shopping, there are wonderful places to shop in Honduras. Open-air markets, Mercados, are incredible places to people watch and shop obviously! Every town in Honduras has a market as it is a very traditional Honduran feature. You will never be short of groceries and daily goods in Honduras, as just like the British and Americans, Hondurans shop daily for their required goods, as they are readily available in the markets. The Honduran City Mall opened in November 2005. It is based in San Pedro Sula and hosts 225 shops, 8 movie theatres, 7 banks, 24 fast food restaurants and 4 standard restaurants.

Honduras Diving Season

The dry season is from March through to September and this is the best season for diving. According to NOAA, the Atlantic Hurricane Season is officially June through November; however, this time period also has some of the best diving conditions in the Caribbean with calm seas and warm waters. The best time to see whale sharks is February through May.

The water averages 80 degrees F, rising to a high of 82 F in July, August and September, and dropping to a low of 78 F for a few weeks in December and January. A 3 mm wetsuit, shorty, or heavy lycra suit (Polartec) is recommended apart from the warmer months of summer, but even then, at least a thin lycra suit is suggested, as divers often make four or more dives a day and may develop a chill.
