Blackish Point is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Utila, Honduras. The maximum depth is 61-70ft/19-21m.

From SportDiver Planet’s 50 Greatest Dives, #12 If you’ve come to the Bay Islands to dive, there’s a good chance you’ve come to Utila: Diving is in this tiny mangrove island’s DNA. On the north side of the island, you’ll find less-frequented sites like Blackish Point, which gets its name from the volcanic rock that forms the wall paralleling shore. The upper section of reef starts at around 25 feet, and is covered with healthy hard and soft corals. Around 65 feet, a light current makes for a relaxing drift dive; a series of caverns shelter everything from goliath grouper to huge lobsters. And don’t forget to keep an eye out for “Old Tom,” Utila’s resident legendary whale shark and unofficial mascot. — RS
