A Little About Utila

Utila is a small island in the chain known as the Honduras Bay Islands. Utila lies about 18 miles north of the Honduras mainland and about 15 miles west of the island of Roatan (see the maps below). The island is about 5 miles long and covers approximately 8 square miles. 80% of the island is lowlands and mangrove swamps surrounded by barrier and patch reef. The highest point on the island is Pumpkin Hill which towers 200 feet. There are around 3000 local residents who speak English and Spanish. Just North of the island is the deep water of the Cayman Trench, this is where we have a chance of seeing deep water creatures like the Whale Shark.
