My husband and I enjoyed our Advanced Open Water Course with Sam and Maggie. Both Instructors were friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and reassuring. I felt like we were in good hands the whole time. We were also joined by Dive Master, Kevin who was also helpful and friendly. Every time we've been to the dive center, we've been greeted by courteous... More

My time at UDC was soulfully rewarding, profoundly inspiring, and exceptional in every way. Reflecting on the experience as a whole, the people and culture are what made my experience here an enamoring interlude in my life. When you first arrive to Utila, the amiable and eclectic staff of UDC graciously welcome you to what will ultimately become your home... More

Our son is a passionate scuba diver and he worked hard to convince us for over four years that we would LOVE diving. Finally we agreed to make arrangements to take him to Utila during his university reading week. The Utila Dive Centre far surpassed our expectations. We were greeted by the most friendly staff and from there we had... More

Me and my friend came to Utila to see if we liked diving. What started as a discovery dive turned into completing our Open Water, Advanced Open Water then numerous fun dives. We started the week as 2 rather nervous divers and thanks to the staff at UDC we loved it and couldn't wait for our next dives. Our Instructors... More

I did my Open Water and my partner his Advanced at the end of January. UDC is slightly more expensive, but definitely worth it. Our instructors have been very professional, helpful and patient. Everybody has been looking after us all the time. Thank you Aly, Theresa, Dan and all our dive masters for that great experience.

Can't recommend Utila Dive Centre more. We had a truly brilliant time here! My friend and I were both new to diving and very nervous, we opted for the discovery dive day to see if we liked it before signing up for the Open Water. Our instructor Dan (brilliant and highly recommended also!) made us feel really at ease and... More

I spend one month (February 2017) diving with UDC and doing my Dive Master Training. During those four weeks I was part of the UDC family and had an awesome time, while learning all the necessary theory and skills to get my DM certificate. The staff is just amazing, the instructors are very knowledgeable and love to share their passion... More

BACKGROUND: 94 dives & Adv Open Water cert prior to arrival, now a Rescue Diver. Did a bunch of research before choosing UDC on Utila. Hands down the best choice I could have made, both for ease of logistics, as well as quality of education and staff here. COURSES: Did my Rescue Diver course here. There are plenty of "rubber...
