Found underwater vision through reviews and blogs and spent all week (11 dives) with them. Sofie was a great instructor and the staff were all professional and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend them and use them again. I think they've got he best location and setup on the island as well.

At first glance I loved the property with the hammocks, clean dorms, kitchen and nice beach area which is rare on this island. But what made it all worth it was my super cool instructors!!! Thank you Sara and Sofie for showing me a whole new world! These ladies made my first dive experience really safe and fun! Highly recommended

Underwater Vision is a top notch dive centre to begin or continue any SCUBA journey. Speaking from my experience with my own instructors - Erika Joe and Mikey Doyle are 2 of the best. They are pure gold and so will be your experience if you so happen to be embarking on your SCUBA journey with them. Underwater they are... More

I came down to Utila with no set plans except to learn how to SCUBA. I arrived on the island and walked to nearly 10 different dive shops and ended up choosing Underwater Vision. The combination of nice accommodations, friendly & laid-back staff and guests, and awesome property made my final decision very easy. I decided to get my PADI... More

Spent just over a week in Utila learning to dive at underwater vision. So much fun and great company. Everyone was so welcoming. The course was amazing and the bar at the dive shop was just the perfect bohemian outdoor place to hang out in the evening. Sam Vidler, our Instructor and Island guide, was amazing. He was so calm...

Hey Debora Did your Divemaster in record time, you mean!!! You did an amazing job to stay so focused, disciplined and hard working in the few weeks you were with us. I wish you had more time so we could've all hung out above water instead of mainly underwater. Congratulations, we hope you feel like a more confident diver now... More

Everything about Underwater Vision was amazing - perfect location on a beautiful island. The best part was the people. I was lucky enough to have Mikey and Erika as my instructors for my open water course. They were awesome...made lessons fun and made sure I felt safe and comfortable on my first few dives. Sam took my friends and I... More

I had the most amazing time at underwater vision! The instructors were very experienced and there attention and guidance very reassuring! The experience of the deeper waters and all that they offered were so beautiful it is hard to find words! Wreck diving is next on my list! Such a beautiful place !!!

I loved this place! I did the First Aid + Rescue diver course with Sofie. She is extremely knowledgable, patient and lots of fun! The place is lovely with a pier, beach volley, a nice bar and cool people. Hope to be back in paradise soon <3

We were lucky enough to have Sofie as our instructor for our AOW, she really is the best. She was patient and supportive, and even called the Octos... More
