Diving in Honduras can be beautiful with the schools of fish and turtles swimming in the waters near Utila, Honduras. This scuba diving video documents my round the world travels through Central America (RTW stories can be followed on my travel blog: http://alittleadrift.com).
The reef system off the coast of Honduras and stretching up into Belize is the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System and is the second largest reef system in the world (the Great Barrier Reef is the largest).
The diversity of coral is striking in the Honduras reefs--scuba diving these reefs guarantee some of the most diverse smatterings of coral I've ever seen. The fish are not as colorful in these waters as they are in the more tropical waters of Thailand and Australia, but instead are intriguingly spiky and rough, or sleek and slender...
Some of the fish I saw on my dives through this reef system included turtles, lion fish (which DO NOT belong in Caribbean waters), toad fish, spiny lobster, horseshoe lobster, and a huge range of others floating right by my face!
I recommend the diving without a doubt because I saw fish there I hadn't seen anywhere else in the world. I was there at the end of the spotted whale shark season, and though I was REALLY hopeful, these gentle sharks had already migrated onward by April. If you have any Honduras diving questions let me know! :)
