Whether you’re a novice diver, or a seasoned Pro, you’ll find our fun diver service is second to none!

You’ll enjoy a smooth ride to the North side of the island every morning (weather/numbers permitting). You’ll do your first dive there, diving the steep walls of Duppy Waters or CJ’s Drop Off, hunting for nurse sharks around Spotted Bay and Raggedy Cay, or maybe even exploring the caverns and ledges of Blackish Point!

On your way back to the South side of the island for dive number two, Captain Erik will be keeping his eyes peeled for signs pointing to Utila’s famous whale sharks, dolphins or even pilot whales!

If afternoons are more your thing, our afternoon boat always goes for two dives on the South side of the island.

For an unforgettable scuba experience, night diving is also available!

Why choose Alton's?

Here at Alton’s we keep our fun diver groups small – a maximum of 6 divers per Divemaster. We split the groups by certification level. This means if you’re Open Water, you’ll only be going with other Open Water divers, and if you’re Advanced or above, you’ll be going with divers of your level!

You'll be diving for longer - we run one hour dives. You'll have 15 – 25 minutes longer underwater than at other dive centers on the island! Don’t worry, we do have bigger tanks if you’re a heavy breather!

We believe diving should be comfortable and safe with which is why we have a wide range of well maintained equipment. If you have your own equipment we can provide storage. We also know that newer divers may not have invested in their own gear yet or you may be bringing friends who do not have their own. We have a full range of rental gear with wet suits, BCDs and fins in a range of sizes from XXXS to XXL. All equipment is complementary – saving you on expensive airline luggage fees!

Comfortable easy access dive boats designed with the diver in mind. Easy access to the water (and to the boat again after!), fully equipped with DAN O2 Oxygen kits, first aid, VHF radios, GPS, etc.

You can expect full dive briefings and debriefings including creature identification to as much detail as you want.

Whatever your interests are we will do our very best to accommodate you. These are your dives and this is your vacation so we will help you arrange it so that you get the most out of it. Whether you're into photography, fish ID or exploration we have the divemaster for you.
