Dear Mitch & Julie, thank you for a fantastic time, Altons is the best dive center on Utila. You guys really show your appreciation for your staff with water cay trips and great food & drinks. I really appreciate my experience there and all the wonderful people I met. I am lucky to have had the training and support I got at Alton's. I love how much empathy you have for your environment and for your guests. You are generous, intelligent and compassionate people and I wish you all the luck with your ventures. Give my thanks to Joe, Krey, Annie and Rob.

Many thanks, Rich

Right between two visits - last year I brought all my students (26!) over from Germany, they even crossed the Atlantic Ocean by sailing ship (only!) :) to do their NAUI Advanced Scuba Diver here. (Ok, in Curacao most of them started with doing their PADI OW... :)
February 2011 it will be the same and meanwhile I gonna complete my "PADI/NAUI-Divemaster-Combo"!!! Yay! Can't wait to see you guys again, it's really like visiting old friends again!
Cheers to everybody on my beloved caribbean island, especially at Alton's!

Dear Altons,
thanks so much for an aweaome Utila experience! Katja we are sad we could not find you last night to say goodbye. We loved scuba diving and felt we were in the best of all situations at all times (safety, ear issues, and of course seeing all the neat stuff!). Thanks so much for being such an excellent instructor.

Derek & Sam - thanks so much for helping us on our dives! Your patience with ear issues and your stray fin catching abilities were much appreciated! (I think I still owe 2 rum & cokes...)

Rob, Annie and the rest of Altons staff thanks for making us feel welcome - we had a great time!

Cheers Amanda & Eric

USA yes we can!!! (...in 2022)

What an amazing place! Been here 5 days seen 8 whale sharks, 4 of them in one day! And what an affordable price! I'll be back again to see if I can top eight whale sharks...

Everything about our stay at Alton's was just awesome. My friend and I visited the islands for a week -- Roatan was nice, but we ended up wishing we'd stayed longer on Utila. The DMs and crowd we stayed with were really cool (Katya, Sarah, Bob, Natasha, Christopher, everyone -- you guys rock) and I'm thinking seriously about heading back at some point to stay longer/do my DM. (I wasn't even thinking about going beyond Rescue before, so that's saying something.) Great people, great culture, great diving -- keep it up!

Hey, I just finished an open water course with Lauren. I was just writing to thank ya'll; everything at Alton's was awesome, and Lauren was a great teacher. The whole island has such a laid back vibe and so it was really nice to see how serious Lauren was about her teaching. She was great! Thanks again, and I'll be sure to be back to get my Advanced in a few years time!

When I first came to Central America I had no clue about diving! I met so many people who spoke so highly about scuba diving and Alton's that I wanted to try it out. Now that I've been here a week and done my PADI Open Water and NAUI Advanced I'm in love with scuba diving and all the people at Alton's! It's been an awesome experience! Thanks for everything! I will definitely recommend Alton's to everyone!

Our Ode to Alton's
------------------
When we got here we had no idea we'd stay this long or have so much fun. You made it hard to leave... so we have a few people to thank:

Jamie: First & foremost thanks go to our instructor for not only teaching us to dive but also for providing much needed banter & entertainment (especially our crazy night out). All our dives were awesome; thanks for pointing out our first turtle and making us feel so at ease underwater. Couldn't have had a better first week diving. (in a gay australian accent) "it was a beauty!"

Captains Joe & Gringo: thanks for the music & wet & wild rides!

Martin/Norway/Viking: Although you might not have realised, you stole Lucy's heart for the week!!!

THANKS AGAIN - we will miss you lots!!

Thank you for the safe and well organized diving and the excellent Nitrox course. We really enjoyed our time with you. We'll make sure we will contact you next time we come to Utila. Thanks to Adam, Alex, Dawn, Becks and all the team.

Why did i leave Alton's??? I should have stayed!
Really excellent setup they have, right on the water, with dorms within spitting distance of the dive boat! (handy in the mornings after the night before)
The staff/instructors/DMs are really good, knowlegable and happy! (a good sign!)
Ticked off almost all the fishes in their waters and quite a few of the islands many, many dive sites, but my favourite was Ron's Wreck for sure! ;)
I know i'm gonna be back in Alton's one day... To catch the whalesharks that were hiding from me, and looking forward to the tea & biscuits onboard the boat! ;)
Blub blub

To everyone at Alton's thank you for the best dive experience ever. Your instructors are professional, safety orientated, fun to dive and drink with. Your facility and boats are top of the line. We will be back for sure to terrorize your docks.

Had a blast! Breathing under water, REALLY? Yes!! I created a new slogan for this island today. Came knowing how to drink leave knowing how to dive. Love you all, thank you for the endless hospitality. And Ali, thank you for dealing with two obnoxious Americans. Steve the Pirate don't leave, thanks for the snacky crackers, Chino don't stop moving, Norm never wear a shirt, Jess never loose that smile - you brought us here, you are all wonderful - keep the music going - see you all when I go for DM.

Peace and Love.
