We had great service from beginning to end. BICD staff picked us up at the ferry dock, showed us around the facility, and showed us to our room. Dorm room was included in the diving course which was great! Everyone staying and working at BICD was very relaxed, fun, and inclusive. As a first time diver, I was nervous but... More

We came to Utila to get out open water and then leave. That didn't go as planned. We loved diving, the place, our instructors and the people so much that we decided to do the advanced course and stay longer. We really felt safe and comfortable under water thanks to our instructors Abi, Mike, Mark & Hunter. Thanks for introducing... More

The Bay Islands College of Diving was such a memorable experience. Donna met us at the ferry and offered to give us a tour and a free beer for me and my 6 friends while we thought about doing our open water course. We initially came to the island just to party but are soooo happy we were able to... More

We loved working with the BICD; we had just a few dives under our belt and hadn't dove for at least 5 years. Justin at the front desk carefully listened to our concerns and addressed them with a well-thought out plan for completing a Refresher and Advanced Diver course. Jen led us through the refresher and got us very comfortable... More

We took both the Open Water & Advanced class with BICD. It was perfect! Our teachers (Abby & Mike) teached us everything with so many patience, and safety was always high on their priority list. Also our divemasters (Marc & Hunter) did a excellent job. Besides the diving itself, the atmosphere at BICD is also great. Thank you guys for... More

My wife and I were in Utila for 2 months and we both got our divemaster at BICD. The shop is right in the middle of town and has nice apartments and dorms to stay at while you are there. We stayed in the attached apartment for about a week and it was great to get us on our feet... More
