Laguna Beach Resort in Utila
June 20th to 27th, 2015
Caribbean Pearl II: Leadership week with Woody; June 27th to July 4th
Zombies are back!
This is a fantastic family vacation! Divers enjoyed wild dolphins daily in Utila this past year. We swam with them and enjoyed watching them swimming alongside our boats heading to and from all the amazing dive sites. We enjoyed wrecks and reefs, rays and sharks; it is truly a wonderful dive vacation.
Welcome to Laguna Beach on the island of Utila.
A new location has been chosen: Utila, located in the Bay Islands of Honduras, I have been diving here since 1997. Laguna Beach is owned and operated by Troy Bodden & family.
“Troy is my friend, a great dad,diver and an amazing visionary who is environmentally concerned and focused. Troy has worked hard to make Laguna Beach a divers paradise, This resort maintains a high quality of service with a strong focus on safety and education. Troy’s environmentally conscious efforts and influence show through not only with his resort, but throughout the local community of Utila. “
Troy’s love of the Ocean, love for animals and desire to work with kids combined with his global thinking and local action have made Laguna Beach a great location for your families to dive not only this summer but anytime.
The three-mile by seven-mile island of Utila is set between a fringing coral reef and a 2000’ deep continental shelf. Utila sits on top of the second largest fringing coral reef in the world. The positioning of the island makes it a Mecca for divers. Utila is also famous for its many whale shark encounters which occur throughout the year. Pristine snorkeling, fishing for tarpon and bonefish, horseback ridding are among other offerings
This elegantly designed property is set on a palm fringed peninsula dividing a tranquil mangrove lagoon and the warm Caribbean Sea. This quaint resort provides much privacy with their bungalow style accommodations nestled on the lagoons edge, for a perfect view of Utila’s tropical sunset. The beautiful ocean view restaurant and bar, built from natural woods, continues the resort’s rustic theme that compliments the island ambiance Utila is famous for. The outer banks are home to dolphin and more than the occasional whale shark.
We invite you to explore our tropical paradise… where nature abounds.
