I can shamelessly admit, that my first few dives were horrible and I really wanted to quit. And it was horrible in a way that it was really scary to adapt to the idea that you can breathe under water, also all formal bits, such as taking masks and regulators off under water. But my instructor was really supportive and... More

It is with the warmest regards and highest recommendation that I remember Parrots Dive Center. I dove with them in the winter of 2014 and I haven´t forgotten my wonderful experience with them. I initially found them as I was committed to finding a dive center owned and operated by people from that island. In my travels, I've learned how... More

Overall all I was a bit disappointed with my time at parrots,though there were positive things as well. I'll start with negatives: I felt like the equipment and wetsuits could have been better maintained. I didn't have a lot of trust in the equipment which made me a bit nervous while diving. They make you sign a "contract" regarding equipment... More

During your first dive , you experienced problems whilst equalizing , so you were assigned one of our DIVEMASTERS in training, Kevin , as your personal buddy team . This Divemaster was... More

I recently completed my Rescue and Divemaster courses with Parrots Dive Center. From the get go, the staff and fellow divers were very warm and welcoming which helped being a single traveler. The shop had great energy and were very professional and taught me a lot about the diving world. I had a blast with the dive center and was... More

I recently spent about a week diving with Parrots in Utila and have nothing but good things to say about the place. The dive center is in a fantastic location, close to the bank, the ferry terminal, as well as many restaurants and bars (Munchies, La Cueva etc). Parrots also have their own bar called Tranquila which was unfortunately going... More

This year I was lucky enough to go back to Utila and dive with Parrots crowd, 3 years ago.I got my Open Water there and was one of the most exciting experiences of my life. And they are still the same. Professional when it matters, but with a really laid back approach that makes you feel you are among friends.... More

This was my 3rd visit to Parrots Dive Centre and I know I will go back again. I first went around 4 years ago to do my first courses, then went back to do my Divemaster around 2 years later having been made so welcome and received such professional instruction the first time. Once again I got top quality instruction... More
