I heard about Freedive Utila from a freediving instructor I met in Bali, Indonesia, where I did a introduction course to freediving. I went specifically to Utila to train, and I had an amazing time here. The instructors team led by Tex is a collection of awesome people, extremely professional, with a strong emphasis on fun, safe and responsible diving.... More

I took the free dive course thinking it would be something different. Something to enhance my aquatic experience on my trips. I had no idea how incredible it could be! Tex and Marie took me down to 22 meters (66 feet) with just a mask and fins on a single breath !!! And while I was down there I got... More

I recently completed my Freediver certification with Freedive Utila and can't say enough about what a great experience it was. Instructor Chris Mckay was very thorough, professional and encouraging which reflected the whole Freedive Utila approach it seemed to me. From the moment I walked through their door I felt welcomed and encouraged by staff and current students alike. I... More

The course was a 3 day course starting in the afternoon. It starts out slow and almost put us to sleep, but it's designed that way to teach you how to breathe properly. We had a strong group and were able to exceed the first days limit of 12 meters. It felt great to be capable of doing something we... More

If you are looking for something a little different to experience on Útila this is the place. One of the only freedive shops in all of Central America, Freedive Útila has the knowledge and people to get you diving to your potential quickly. I, like most backpackers, was headed to Útila for scuba training. I ran across this shop after... More

Did my Apnea Total Advanced course here after doing my Beginner's on Koh Tao 18 months previously. Tex also teaches AIDA, but go for the Apnea Total course, its more informative. Great instruction from Tex & Chris, they helped me achieve an almost 4minute breath hold (another guy in my class did 4mins 30secs) and I dove down to 37m... More

The staff know what they are doing and provide a welcoming relaxed experience. Both Texas and Chris take their time and are willing to really let you figure out your personal rhythm. If you have ever considered trying to Freedive this the place to do it.
