The Utila Dive Safety and Environmental Council (UDSEC) purchased a cargo vessel, the Captain Berto, with plans to make a new dive site and help create marine habitat. The permit process is under way and hopefully will be completed soon.

The Captain Berto, previously the "Starfish" for years was the only cargo boat servicing Utila so as a new Wreck Dive she will continue to serve the island. Before we had a passenger ferry it was also the primary transportation for tourists coming to dive. The Starfish would come from La Ceiba every Tuesday afternoon loaded with produce, lumber, and drums of fuel as well as passengers.
