Diving in Utila is an experience I'd recommend to anyone. The waters are warm, the reef is healthy and the vibe is just the right combination of relaxed and intoxicated. Thankfully, I also had the pleasure of diving with what I can only describe as the very best group of divemasters I've ever met. Ecomarine isn't just a dive shop,... More

We dove for a couple of weeks with Eco Marine. We visited a few shops and dove with a couple others before we found this little gem. It was clear after our first day of diving with them that we had found a perfect fit. If you want to dive in Utila and not be diving at a "dive factory"... More

Not sure who is writing this comments – but they must be somewhere else ! Broken BCD’s // Regulator leaking // no briefing // drunken dive guide // Stay alive… go diving with profs !

I had a week to spend after Christmas and wanted to use it to complete my PADI open water certification. I heard that Honduras had some of the best AND CHEAPEST diving in the world (and it was much closer than Thailand’s reefs). After consulting with Lonely Planet, I learned that the diving is less expensive on Utila, there are... More

Great instructor, Ernesto, full of positive energy, amazing owners, so friendly and welcoming, generally a trully relaxed atmosphere...exactly what we were looking for. When we arrived in utila, the moment we stepped out of the boat, a horde of loud shouting young gringos approached us from everywhere trying to convince us to switch to their dive shop and their accomodation...they...

One of the best trips of my life and Ecomarine was a huge part of it. You WILL NOT regret it. Ask for Nate and tell them Kyle sent you!

I wanted to experience diving around Utila without having to go with one of the dive shops that seem to be there primarily to party, and seem to consider the actual diving to be secondary. Gunter's is amazing. It's a small set up, very relaxed, well organised and everything feels professionally done without being business like and impersonal. I dove... More

I can't say enough good things about this provider. Tara helped me set up a last-minute dive with aplomb, grace, a sense of humor, and utter candor. It was both affordable and magnificent. If you ever find yourself in Utila, please choose the best vendor on the island: Gunter's Ecomarine. You won't be disappointed.

The staff are great and it has a really relaxed feel compared to other hostels. Lots of the divers are here longterm so feels like a family. Their prices are more expensive than other dive shops as they add on 15% tax and reef fees on top of their price. The dorms are pretty basic and don't include toilet paper... More
