DEEP BLUE DIVERS – Farewell Utilia

14 04 2011

Sorry for our tardiness with our lack of posts recently, our computer gave up the go, seems it enjoyed the Honduran humidity as much as we did!

The last month we have spent at the dive shop Deep Blue Divers on the magical island of Utila. Matt is now a Dive Master and was doing up to 5 dives a day – including 3 times with whale sharks! I finished my Open Water and Advanced but was never on the boat when they found whale sharks so had to settle for turtles, eagle rays and moray eels – not all that bad!

Thank you Libby, Anjay, Kike, Pablo, Emma, Nikki, Victoria, Oscar, Little John, Norge, Jeff, Andy, Zoe, James and Tosspot for a wicked time at Deep Blue! You guys rock – come visit us in Panama!

We both loved Utilia and had some great times not only diving but partying with friends and staff at the dive shop – the following pics show you how we were having way too much fun!

Matt the master of divers!

Underwater dive master training antics!

St Paddys Day was large in Utilia – the Beer Olympics were held at the dive shop Under Water Vision where we entered a team that consisted of 6 nationalities, hence the name! The events included flip cup, volleyball, boat races, tug-a-war – even mud wrestling! ………… And no Matt didn’t let me participate in that one!!

Theme of the day!

Paddys Day maddness!

When things turn even madder!


The final test to become a Dive Master is the famous snorkel test – in which you are on your knees sculling anything and everything through a snorkel beer bong styles! Matty’s mix included beer, rum, banana liqueur, tomato sauce and mustard! Lets just say that the night went very messy for the newly crown dive masters Chris, Andy and Matty! The party rocked on back at the dive shop and it was a perfect way for us to end our time in Utilia!

Our boat to our final day at Water Cay, hmmm!

post was good. I don’t recognize who you might be but definitely you’re
going to a well-known blogger if you happen to are
not already. Cheers!
