All instructors and divemasters here were incredible. Extremely knowledgeable and able to pass on their experience to divers of a variety of different levels.
They offer dives to the north side of Utila each morning, where you are more likely to see whale sharks and turtles. Dives on to the south side are equally impressive with octopus, and various types of rays frequently spotted as well as some wrecks.
The rooms are new and well kept, with most offering A/C though with an additional charge of around $15 a day for use. The rooms can get pretty hot during the night even with the windows open and at times staff/guests can be heard if staying on the ground floor close to the bar.
Location is good, everything within 5/10 mins walk. If you email ahead they will pick you up from the sock at no additional charge. (A nice gesture when carrying luggage in the heat).
