As a diving instructor myself I have worked and seen a wide variety of dive schools an these guys are doing a fantastic... More

So you told your family and friends you're going to live your life being true to yourself and become a dive instructor? Well, don't be satisfied in merely becoming one, why not become a GREAT instructor at BICD with the guidance of the one and only, Course Director Nick Derutter! Or have you already kind of chosen Nick and Team... More

I stayed here with my husband and another couple for 8 days. We wanted a place to stay where some of us could dive and have accommodation, and some not dive but still stay in the same accommodation without paying ridiculous amounts of money. After checking out every place on the island, this was the best. We stayed in one... More

I spend almost 3 months diving with Bay Island College of Diving doing my Divemaster and IDC, and I can only tell you: You must dive with them !! The staff is awsome and friendly and it is a human size shop, with great facilities and large boats. They really care about the safety of their divers (they own the... More

BICD is without a doubt the best dive shop on Utila. Unbelievable service from the staff and the facilities are amazing! No other shop has such a commitment to safety and actual diver education. Come to BICD if you want to learn diving the right way. The instructors, dive masters and skippers are incredibly knowledgeable and more than happy to... More

Where do I start? I began emailing back and forth with Vanessa and later to the owner of the operation. These two girls were very responsive throughout, Thank You! I wanted to dive with Nitrox as I hadn't had the opportunity to do so in over a year. BICD charges an additional $5.00 per tank where as the other operators... More

BICD was a great place for me as a first time diver to earn my Open water. I was extremely nervous about diving because I hadn't swam in a while, but the instructors were so accommodating. Kelsey Miller was my instructor at first and because I was so nervous about doing the 200meter swim she did it with me! We... More

We stayed at BICD for about a week in October of 2014 and I already can't wait to go back! I took the Open Water course and stayed with 2 friends in a private suite and have nothing but good things to say. The staff was very friendly and greeted me with an ice cold beer. The level of instruction... More
