Better you stop to Alton if you like party family and to Ecomarine if you like sustainable diving, even Paradise, UDC, Underwater are cool BUT AVOID PARROTS. Their attention to customer is oriented mostly on selling ticket for parties, the gear are obsolete (holes in the swimsuit!), they rent me a used(and abuse) mask, they didnt attend me professionaly, I...

From the minute I got there they always make me feel like family. This is my second time to Utila and I wouldn't dive with anyone else. They put me on every dive that I asked and made sure I had the best time. The staff is amazing and the dive shop is next to the best bar on the... More

Such and wicked mix of Dive Masters all made you feel like one of the family. They always made you feel safe and looked after you at all times in the water, open water course is a dangerous start to what i can seee becoming a huge hobby. LOOK out its adictive! Cheers guys and i highly reccomend this joint.

Be sure to ask about their dive and stay packages. We got the "honeymoon suite" overlooking the ocean for $25 per night. Some great deals to be had if you negotiate. The gear is all good quality and can be trusted. The t-shirts they sell are low quality and shrink considerably when you wash them

During my time in Utila I completed both my Open Water and Advanced Open Water certifications with Parrots. I had Monica as my Dive Instructor and she was AMAZING! Extremely helpful, kind, and has a great personality. And Herardo was our other instructor who was very helpful during the dives, fun and a good character! I also interacted with some... More

When i think back at my time at parrots i get a huge smile on my face. When we arrived the staff gave us a warm welcome and a good explanation of the (cheap) courses. The instructors and lets not forget about the divemasters (in training) were very professional and lots and lots of fun. Parrots organises fun trips and... More

I was doing my advanced open water at Parrots and will recommend it to anyone going to Utila. The staff is extremely helpful and focus very much on the quality of the dive courses.

I was so impressed with the parrots dive team. My girlfriend an I made the trek between our cruise line contracts. We felt like part of the family when we arrived. Mark was incredible and led a group of passionate crew that made the experience so relaxing and breathtaking. Hats off the the locals!!!!
