The Underworld Fantasy

It was the perfect place to have my first dive. The dive sites are spectacular and I felt completely safe. Thank you PADI for your wonderful Teachers, they helped me a lot.

We went to BICD to only do our Open Water course. We had so much fun there that we decided to do our Advance course also. I recommend this place to everyone that want to have fun and be well trained. We had the chance to have Vanessa Ramsey and Donna Bodden for instructor, they are amazing! If you have... More

I took a trip with a couple girlfriends to Utila to learn to dive. We did our open water course with Bay Islands. Everyone there was incredible! They immediately felt like family! The one instructor Rebecca was so amazing. After I freaked out the first time in the water to do some of the dive tests, Becca insisted that she... More

My boyfriend and I came to Utila to dive - I did my open water and he did fun dives. As a complete package we got an apartment to ourselves with private kitchen and bathroom and a lovely balcony overlooking the Main Street which is always bustling with people. When it came to the diving BICD offered us the best... More

I recently came to Utila to complete my divemaster certification with two of my friends. We decided to dive at BICD because one of the instructors is an old family friend. We made the right decision! I only completed my dm there but my other friends did their advanced through dive master certifications. All the instructors and dive masters are... More

I dove with BICD because someone I met had recommended it to me, I will not recommend it to anyone else. The staff were friendly enough, but treated the divers like children. The divers were expected to set up and clean up everything, while the dive masters watched, I was actually scolded for "not packaging my equipment properly." Really? Last... More

I didn't really dive before and just heard that Utila is a cool place to do so. I wrote to 5 dive shops and BICD was first and only one that answered. They've advised me before my arrival and picked me up from the ferry and offered welcome drink. My PADI Open Waters course was really great-we've seen a nurse... More

The reefs, the staff, the instructors (big up to my 1st class instructor Carole), the Lodge, the activities, the bars, the food, all of it, are all the time and money worth, and more! So stop considering and just go for it!
