It's taking me 9 months to write this review. I have no excuses! Sorry my beloved BICD! If you come to Bay island collage of diving to scuba dive, you will not just get first class training (the instructors are not just witty, they are extremely professional too), you will get a new extended family. I went to BICD, upon... More

The college is a brilliant dive shop hat I couldn’t recommend higher. Their attention to detail and approach to professionalism in dive training is what drew me to them in the first place, but what made my stay continue to feel like the best decision was the access to extra facilities and skill building with the Hyperbaric Chamber and Whale...

I spent 8 weeks with BICD this summer doing my divemaster and instructor courses. Nick, Vanessa, and all of the staff were tremendously helpful and professional. The other instructor candidates and I were very well prepared for the instructor examination with each if us earning at least 1 perfect score during the examination process.

Amazing staff who teach efficiently, very talkative and make you feel very welcome and wanted. Excellent big dive boats so you have lots of space. Pool to boost your confidence. Excellent captains who know where the best sights are! - Whale sharks and Dolphins. Overall truly the best experience of my life here. 👌

I stayed here for 10 days to do my open water and advanced certifications. I did not know where to go when I arrived in Utila and these guys were the best from 3-4 schools I saw and visited on my arrival. Prices wise, location, and facilities, and they looked at the time extremely professional that ended up being the... More

Seriously good value diving. Lovely staff. All a little bit crazy but the right kind of crazy. The instruction was very good. The one downside was the accommodation. Their own rooms were full and as a result we stayed in the hotel next door which made it difficult to get to know other people at the school.

My time spent at the Bay Islands College of Diving was completely due to someone I met on another trip. He had spent several months living and working there and highly recommended it to me. And now I highly recommend it to everyone else. They did a great job working with me and teaching me about the awesome scuba diving... More

I got off the ferry onto Utila with my Open Water Cert on February 10th of this year after meeting one if BICD's instructors Vanessa by lucky chance during the ride from La Ceiba. From there she had myself and 6 of my friends in tuk tuks off to the shop to check everything out. That day changed my life... More

i did my open water course at BICD and had a great time. this is my first post on here, and very likely my last - I'm usually too lazy to do anything like this. BUT... Nick was my instructor and didn't ask for tips but instead for a review of the school on trip advisor - because he was... More
