As one will find out, when you arrive in utila off the ferry, it seems like endless opportunities for places to dive with. However, save your time for island fun and dive with the most enjoyable and professional dive family on the island! Parrots owners, management, and instructors will welcome you and make sure you have a great experience! Thank... More

We were at Rubi's Inn, very clean and calm place with really really really nice owners. Be carefull, whwn you go... More

Loved my diving experience here. Danny (snowflake) was a great instructor and Tatiana is the sweetest lady ever. The boats are small which I think is an advantage over some of the bigger and nicer dive centers. Highly recommended

Did my Open Water Scuba Diver course with 2 Danish, 2 Swiss, 2 Canadians, 1 US Citizen, 1 Australian and another Honduran besides me... Great professional and fun instructors, kudos to Steph...

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

Without the passion and the great attitude of Parrots Dive Center i would probably never know the breathtaking underwater world,after my miserable fail to learn diving with an impatient instractor in Australia.I told the Parrots team how scared i am to dive and even before i went on my free trial dive for 15min which they offered to show me...

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

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
