Completed my PADI open water with the BICD after looking at around 3 other dive shops. We decided on here because when we spoke with John on front desk he was really informative and not pushy, unlike other places. Anyway he ended up instructing us and he was awesome - super friendly, professional and up for a laugh at the... More

A friend and I had heard great things about BICD whilst travelling around Central America and when we got there we certainly were not disappointed! Greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff we were given a tour of the facilities and offered a range of diving options. They weren't pushy or overbearing, which was great and we decided to do our PADI... More

I stayed 5 nights on BICD and did 10 amazing dives during my stay. Great staff and nice atmosphere! I stayed in fresh dorm for free because of my daily diving which was good. They also have the islands biggest boats which was appreciated during big waves some days. New equipment was also a plus! I really recommend this place!

In March 2015 I did a diving course with them. The attandance in the office was so so, as it seems they always just wanted to shift the work to the less laziest. When it came to payment the one girl was very aggressive to me losing their manner. The diving itself was very good. I had a superfriendly instructor... More

My Boyfriend and I came to BICD between April 21-27 I took the open water course with Kelsey as my instructor. She was great! Very knowledgable and patient, she made diving waaaaay less scary that I thought it would be!!! Not only that but there were always three other Divemasters with us so you always felt like someone had your... More

I had a great time doing my advanced course with BICD. The instructors are a really good bunch and the diving in the area is great, I especially enjoyed my first wreck dive.

My partner and I took an Advanced PADI course at Bay Islands College of Diving (BICD) and couldn't have been happier with the diving experience! However, there is a reason I gave this place a '4' and here is why. ‘Negative’: After reading the reviews BICD was one of our top choices to go with. However, after talking to the... More

We walked all around town looking into dive schools since we'd heard some scary tales; if something' cheaper there's probably a reason. BICD was a little cheaper then other places we looked, and as with most dive schools on Utila charged a slight fee to pay by card (4% I believe, but taxes and reef fees were already included). The...

Bec was my instructor and she was awesome. She thoroughly explained everything and made sure everybody understood each skill before moving on. We had at least two dive masters or DMTs helping us each time, so we all received a great deal of one on one instruction. My room was about what I expected. It's very basic but everything was...

From my first contact with Nick to ending my experience with BICD I can't say anything other than it was all dealt with in total professionalism and it made for a great time. His knowledge and organization are exceptional and he truly optimizes what it means to be a Course Director. Nick was flexible in his approach and made alterations... More
