OK,

My first not real serious attempt at a dive report.

Everything they say about Utila and Roatan might be true.

see http://www.diveguide.com/hond-scuba.htm


The reefs on Utila are healthy



There are young people teaching young people how to dive.


I got to Utilla in one day..... My House - LAX-ElSalvador-
San Pedro Sula- La ceiba - Utilla - Colibri Hill Hotel - Gunthers Dive Shop
Dinner Somewhere and Back to the Colibri Hill

The planes got smaller and smaller and the last vehicle was a ferry boat


A view from the ferry at sunset on the 2 hour crossing



This is the view from Colibri Hill looking at Gunthers Dive shop

My camera broke after 5 days so the pics will lack continuity and a story.

I met some Canadian Divers named Joan and Connie. This is two of them
waiting to jump after a whale shark off of Pumpkin Hill


We saw a whale shark.


these are the widest angle the camera got, so the fish is big
or we were real close. (Inclusive OR)


Two encounters, same shark within 30 minutes.



Many Kudos to the boat driver at Gunthers Dive Shop.

The DMT's, DM's and Instructors too.

I took the standard tropical pics.












Here is the third Canadian Diver - Tara

Here is another diver

more of Connie

and

Joan

and me

Here is my nitrox instructor Neil/ He also has a catamaran boat and will take
you to Los Cochinos (for money).


I have not yet received my card from PADI. (padi.com)

You can buy land on Utila


Sometimes people ask about My camera. A Canon S30.


Back Home LAX at the Beach

The is the end of My first not real serious attempt at a dive report.
