I did my DM with the Ecos in July & August 2014. It is a small dive operation, which is what I liked about it - the family feel of the place, the location in Sandy Bay, a little way off from the bustle of main street. If you are looking for a large shop with plenty of twenty year... More

I went to utila just to see what everyone was talking about, not planning on diving or even sticking around for a bit I started to walk down main street. It is a bit of a walk but when you get passed all the bustle of the rest of the shops you hit this little gem down in sandy bay.... More

My wife and I work in the dive industry, and whenever we go on vacation we normally research dive shops, but never actually book anything until we get to our destination and feel stuff out. We dove a few days with Gunter's Ecomarine, and they were fantastic. While they ran a bit on "Island Time" the service was still excellent... More

My friend and I stayed here at the beginning of June, we were only ment to stay 1 week but loved it so much we ended up staying for over 2 weeks! Everyone is super friendly and chilled out. We did two dive courses which we could do at our own pace and both Nate and Ernesto are great diving... More

I have just spent a week with the team at Ecomarine completing my open water dive licence, and am so glad I chose to do it with them! My instructor, Nate, was friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable, making me feel confident and relaxed in the water. The rest of the team are super friendly and make you feel right at home.... More

I just got my PADI Open Water Cerfication with Gunther's and I'm really happy I chose them from the numerous dive shops around Utila. Their shop is smaller than most of the more popular spots and that suited me just fine. I wasn't feeling like studying in a big class and when I met Nate, my instructor, he told me... More

After visiting a few other dive shops, who seemed very party-ish and crowded- the opposite of what we were looking for, we arrived at Gunther's dive shop. We immediately noticed the beautiful pier and laid back atmosphere. We were welcomed by the super friendly and nice Maria who offered us to take the open water course just the two of... More

I spent 10 days with Gunters Ecomarine doing both an advanced open water scuba course and a beginner freediving course. The scuba instructors Ernesto and Aiden were very knowledgeable, confident, patient, professional, and genuinely enjoy showing you the reefs. They took a lot of trips to the north side even though it is more costly and time consuming for them.... More

We originally weren't going to pick gunther's but as we were staying right across from it we thought we should, and were definitly thankful we did! We took the open water course and were instantly given a better price than parrots or captain morgans, and started the course the next day. The course was smooth and the instructor Ernesto was...
