Captain Rusty and Cayos Cochinos

Has anyone went on a sailboat cruise with Captain Rusty out of Utila? If so, did he dive w/ you or take u to dive sites?

Is C.Cochinos more for snorkeling or diving?

you can dive, rusty knows where the best sites are but he won't act as a dive master so you'll be diving with just your buddy (if you have one). you'll also need to rent tanks (easy to do in utila for around $10 each) and any other equipment you may need. the snorkeling is great but the diving is even better.

There is diving on Cayos Cochinos however in my experience it is not worth it. They have beautiful corals however the sealife is not all that great; Utila is better.

I know this because I run a boat charter and go to Cayos frequently. The snorkeling is very good there.

There are no emergency facilities there in the event of an accident.
