SCUBA DIVING THE BAY ISLANDS: ULTIMATE UTILA DIVE RESORTS
Like stripes on a cheery beach towel, the waters of the Bay Islands greet you with a dozen shades of blue. Royal, azure, turquoise — choose your color. Perched on that briny rainbow, the smallest of Honduras’ Caribbean isles, Utila, is truly a magical place, where seahorses greet you on every dive, and there’s always the hope of sighting that unicorn of the sea: whale sharks.
