~ Utila Dive Festival ~
The Utila Dive Festival was created to highlight the tiny diving Mecca of Utila, one of The Bay Islands located in the Western Caribbean just South of Belize. Utila Dive Festival 2013, is a week of diving, dancing, dining and discovering on a tropical island whose heart beats scuba day in and day out. In fact, over thousands of divers and professionals are trained here each year, continuing the tradition in Scuba Diving as an incredible adventure sport.
The 2nd annual event, scheduled for June 22nd to 28th, is designed not only to attract a wide range of visitors but also to benefit the entire community of Utila. Underwater, we have daily themed dives, photo contests and a scavenger hunt. At the surface, the parties, boat parade of lights, SUP/kayaking adventures, Taste of Utila and prize giveaways will draw a crowd!
The Utila Dive Festival is focused on building an atmosphere that will both educate and foster the enjoyment of sharing underwater experiences and also highlight what Utila has to offer as a vacation destination. Our best assets are the largest reef in the Western Hemisphere that surrounds the islands, the over 99% of Caribbean sea life that makes its home in our waters and the elusive Whale Shark, the world’s largest fish that resides here year round.
Traditionally a beginners diving paradise, Utila has progressed over the years offering specialty training courses, tech diving, reef ecology and professional training packages. In recent years, many dive resorts have influenced Utila’s overall breadth, offering fun diving experiences mixed with casual Caribbean getaways. The myriad of Mom and Pop-shops, restaurants, crazy little seaside bars, topside activities, little surrounding islands (Utila Cays) and nature excursions round up the island as a fun place to spend a dive or water adventure vacation!
