Whalesharks, manta rays and dolphins are more commonly encountered in Utila’s waters where the continental shelf drops vertically to over 3,300 feet.

Ultimate Diving Experience There is absolutely nothing I can think of that would have made my experience getting my open water certification at Alton’s any better. All of the instructors were AWESOME and Alton and his wife did an incredible job of making my boyfriend and I feel right at home. The atmosphere at the dive shop is so positive and truly made the whole experience. When our week vacation was up I certainly was not ready to leave. The captains of the boats were so amazing and in 4 days of diving we swam with dolphins twice, jumped in with a whale shark 4 times, saw a lemon shark near the reef, spotted a sea turtle, an eagle ray, eels, and tons of beautiful fish while diving around the area.
Scuba diving is a well established activity in the Bay of Islands. It is widely recognized as one of the best scuba diving locations in the Caribbean. There are thousands of divers who flock each year to the island of Roatan in the Bay of Islands. What many of these tourists don’t know is that the island of Guanaja has arguably better diving than Roatan and is much less crowded. Guanaja Divers is located on Graham’s Cay just a short boat ride away from the main island of Guanaja. We offer all of our guests the best possible diving experience possible. We have all new gear, a great crew, and give you the luxury diving marine life experience you are after while on your Caribbean vacation.
