Close to the night life yet beautifully situated for a chilled atmosphere, and just a short walk away from town centre. Staying in Pirate's Bay Inn gives you the chance to explore Utila and everything this friendly island has to offer, from the restaurants to the beaches and maybe even to search for Captain Morgan's legendary treasure.

Captain Morgan's offer absolutely first class instructors combined with a vast knowledge of the best dive sites around the island. They typically venture to much more rewarding sites on the north side of the island that a lot of the other centres fail to visit...More

When I initially arrived at Utila, I assumed that I, at most, could only be indifferent about the island as its famed charms are for diving and debauchery. The former was not a feasible possibility for me to partake in, in that I am not...More
