PADI Underwater Naturalist
One of the most interesting aspects of scuba diving is encountering the creatures of the aquatic ecosystem and observing their interactions with one another. Curiosity may lead a diver to wonder what exactly the relationships between the different species on the reef surrounding Utila and elsewhere are, and how they interact in both beneficial and non-beneficial ways. Take a step beyond fish identification and learn about the relationships between plant, animal and environment.
PADI Underwater Navigator
Don’t follow the leader…BE the leader! Learn to orientate and navigate yourself around the divesites of Utila so that you will ALWAYS return to the boat (or entry point), and be the diver everyone else wants to follow! Many of the dive sites in Utila are ‘wall dives’ which means that divers generally use a timing device and follow the wall in one direction, then turn around and return to the boat when the dive is about half way through. This takes some practice to become proficient, but it is a fairly easy skill to master. However, once you have dived the walls you will want to explore more!

Around the world there are an uncountable number of diveable wrecks to be explored. Airplanes, war ships, junks, tall ships, automobiles and more!
