My first dive on Utila! Black Hills is a lovely sea mound adorned in brilliant sponges and massive soft corals. Following a spiral profile typical of most pinnacle dives, I spotted a free-swimming green moray eel, schools of horse eye jacks and atlantic spadefish, a dozen flamingo tongues, a pea (juvenile smooth trunkfish), two large lettuce sea slugs, and three hawskbill turtles. Definitely one of the best dives in the Bay Islands!

A nice shallow drift beneath the colorful sponge-encrusted overhangs along Utila’s shoreline. The reef was a bit sparten in terms of fishlife (including a noticeably dull ten minute swim across a huge sand patch), but the laser show of sunlight cascading upon the shallows made up for the lack of fish.
