M/V Caribbean Pearl II basic informations

The M/V Caribbean Pearl II is based out of Utila, Honduras. Utila is the smallest of the Bay Islands of Honduras. Roatán, Guanaja, Cayos Cochinos, and hundreds of small cays comprise the rest of this archipelago. The Bay Islands and Utila in particular, are a mecca for divers from all corners of the world.

Divers travel from all over the world to the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean to experience some of the best diving in the world. Large purple sea fans, swaying gorgonians, and enormous barrel sponges set the perfect backdrop for viewing undersea creatures of all varieties.

From spellbinding and mystical caverns, intriguing wrecks, majestic walls, atolls, and white sandy bottoms, to swimming with Whale Shark and Caribbean Reef Sharks, diving in the Bay Islands is unsurpassed in the Caribbean.

Second largest barrier reef in the world, the Western Caribbean shelters over 500 species of fish. The Mesoamerican Reef System extends from the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico south to the Bay Islands of Honduras encompassing over 600 nautical miles of ocean and coral reef.

• Balmy waters and excellent visibility keep diving conditions ideal throughout the year.

• Water temperature ranges from 86 F/30 in September to 78 F/25C in January.

• One can frequently view pelagics from over 100ft/30m away.

• Currents tend to be mild and relaxing.

Your charter week starts in Roatán. Diving starts in Roatán as the M/V Caribbean Pearl II begins its journey. Later, explore hidden sea mounts in Cayos Cochinos and search for whale sharks enroute to Utila. The diving ends in Utila. The M/V Caribbean Pearl II will return to Roatán on Friday evening or Saturday morning, depending on weather conditions, to disembark guests for their international departure on Saturday morning.

Guests are greeted at the Roatán airport by a crew member and taken to the yacht. If your international flight arrives in San Pedro Sula, the Caribbean Pearl II office arranges charter flights to and from San Pedro Sula to Roatán. There will be a greeter in San Pedro Sula to guide you to your connecting flight. The domestic transfer is confirmed once you book.

    Dive type: Wreck
    One of three main shipwreck dive sites off Roatan’s coast, El Aguila is 75 meters (230 feet) long and broken into three pieces (courtesy of 1998’s Hurricane Mitch) providing plenty of area and many nooks and crannies for divers to explore.
    Spanish for ‘the Eagle,’ El Aguila is thought to have originally sunk off the coast of Utila while on course to Haiti from Puerto Cortes, carrying a shipment of concrete. After being underwater for many years, the ship was brought back up to the harbor by Rocky Jones of Utila, only to be dragged back onto the reef again by a storm, after which it was salvaged a second time and intentionally partially submerged to prevent further storm damage.
    El Aguila is situated at 110′ deep and a short ride away from Sandy Bay. AKR purchased the ship while searching for a new wreck site for divers, as the common wooden-hulled wrecks of the time were starting to deteriorate and disappear. It took the team 5 weeks between purchasing, cleaning, towing, and finall

    Dive type: Wreck
    110 feet under the surface off Roatan’s shore sits the Odyssey wreck. At 300 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 85 feet tall, this freighter is Roatan’s largest wreck dive, as well as one of the largest in the Caribbean. Intentionally sunk for divers in 2002, this ship is still intact and requires a more advanced skill level than the El Aguila to penetrate, so diving with a wreck diving certification is recommended.
    The centersection of the Odyssey has collapsed, but the bow remains tall and upright–providing scenic views of the surrounding reef wall, a nearby sand patch, and the rest of the ship. Holes for divers have been cut into the sides of the ship, but to explore inside an underwater flashlight is required. Schools of large grouper, barracuda, tuna, and sharks have often been seen surrounding the wreck by divers. It is impossible to explore the entire wreck in its multi-level enormity in a single dive.
    The Odyssey was donated by the Hydes of Hybur Limited after a devastating fire

    Water temperature: 26.4 - 29.7℃
    Dive type: Exploratory, Reef and Wall
    Located almost directly off the beach in West End, Half Moon Bay Wall is an easily accessible dive perfect for all diving levels. The reef starts at around 15 feet and continues to the top of a small, beautiful, semicircular wall that drops down to 150 feet and deeper. There are moorings at the wall for Dixie’s and Dive Master’s Choice here as well, due to the size of the reef and the abundance of marine life found in and around it. Flamingo tongues, gorgonians, black coral and orange elephant ear sponges line the sides of the wall, while schools of grouper, Blue Chromis, and Creole Wrasse dart around the sides.
    Moray eels, lobsters, and turtles are also known to be frequently found in this area, while a tunnel further up along the reef is arguably the best place on the island to find Eagle Rays. The shallow nature of the top of the wall provides excellent visibility for the vibrant coral outcroppings that meet the white sand, although the plunging depth of the wall also promises mo

Suitable for all skill levels. Depth ranges from 25’ to past recreational dive limits. Sand channels make a coral maze on this gentle rolling hill at 40’. Colossal barrel sponges and soft corals cling to the reef‘s face. Sloping over the wall’s gradual edge, lofty coral heads create deep channels as it descends to 130’ and into the dark below.
