Diving in Utila – 1st day, Honduras 2013

Photo by Karla Brunet/ErranteThe main reason for visiting Utila island was diving. I had seen on the internet that April was whale shark season in the region. So, my vacation destination was chosen for me. My dives there were with Utila Dive Center. On the first day we been to two incredible places: Pinnacle and Ted’s Point (info below). Right on the beginning of the dive we saw a wreck. I love boat, any sort, above or under water.

The corals were beautiful, different formation, like flowers, tress, branches…There was not a huge amount of fish, but we saw some school of small fishes, a sea horse (they are not easy to spot, the divemater showed us), and the most interesting, an octopus. Generally they are hidden o a hole. Luckily, not this time. I was a bit away from the gruop taking photos when I saw an octopus passing by me “flying”. It was gorgeous, I have never seen an octapus like that, it was dancing in the sea. Made my day!

Night Snorkeling

Oscar, from the beach equipment rental, invited me to a night snorkel. I accepted, I had done many night dives but never a night snorkel. A late afternoon, when coming back from an island tour, I met Oscar. We walked around the airport, passing through some airplanes, in order to get to our starting point. It was getting dark and the mosquitoes were hungry, lucky me that Oscar was prepared and had mosquito repellent.

By the time we went into the water, it got dark. It was a very interesting experience, I liked the feeling of being in the sea, in an open space, with anything around, no boat waiting for me, or a port next to me, or a beach with people. We surrounded the island on the airport site, therefore, there was no people on the beach.

Right in the beginning we saw a very big lobster, but is was fenced season, so we could not grab it for dinner. Oscar was excited but respected the rules. Our goal was to find an octopus for Oscar’s dinner...

El Morrito – dive site in Los Roques

El Morrito is an incredible dive site in Los Roques. It is calm, very colorful, lots of little fishes, and what I like the most: a wreck. I recommend this dive site.
See the videos of the wreck.

Gran Roque, Los Roques

The great motivation to visit Los Roques was scuba diving, so, I spent my first day planning what I would like to do on the 8 days I had in that tropical paradise. The place, I can say, is one of the most beautiful I had been. The sea is incredible, clean beach, transparent water, fisherman, birds, beautiful landscape, great small hotels and interesting people. Everything was very simple and “not simple” at the same time. Almost everybody stay in Gran Roque, the island from where you can depart to dive trips and get boats do visit other islands in the archipelago.

On my first days in Los Roques I was diving. Later I decided to have a “vacation”, not to plan anything, it matched the place… I would wake up at any given time, go to the port and get a boat to wherever they were going. This way, little by little I could go to great part of the islands in Los Roques (Francisquí, Madrisquí, Noronsquí, Crasquí, Rabusquí, Dos Mosquices, Cayo de Agua)...

First day of diving in Los Roques

A little bit of the underwater feeling on the first day of diving in Los Roques. Dive sites were La Buceadora and El Morrito. And for the ones who like a bar anywhere, here in the depths of the sea we found a table with some bottles.
