My son and I went to BICD to do our advanced open water class. I have to say that our instructor was amazing, his name is John Boden, he's a local Utilian and the kindest, most patient dive master I've ever experienced. If you go to BICD and have you have a chance to work with John DO IT!!

Really nice over there. They are relaxt and even offered me a free snorkel trip because I had to wait for my courses (open water and advanced). The staff is friendly and always having fun with you and eachother. They are serious about youre safety. My instructor John Bodden is a real good teacher. He knows how to explain everything... More

I can't say enough good things about learning to dive with BICD! The staff is all very knowledgeable and very patient. I never felt uncomfortable or rushed to learn a specific skill. My particular experience was a one on one with the instructor which was great for me. Carole was excellent and paid attention to all of the small details.... More

This is a very professional dive operation. They know how to have fun, but they are also one of the more professional dive shops I've come across in my travels which is not always what you might expect in Utila. I'll be going back soon to take more courses with them! Kelsey was a great instructor and I would highly... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in Utila. The diving with Bay Islands College of Diving was spectacular and very professional and safe. We stayed at the Utila Lodge which I would definately recommend. If arriving by ferry from La Cieba, pay the little bit extra to use the Utila Dream ferry. I wish we could have stayed... More

Great crew. Wonderful dive. Very professional with approximate emphasis on safety while sharing the underwater environment with its natural inhabitants. Highly recommend

I arrived to Utila, Honduras on Christmas Eve and was greeted as soon as I got off the ferry by staff from the dive school. They walked me through the busy main road, and I was greeted in person by the head staff Pete and Rebecca as soon as I walked through the doors. After asking if I was ready... More

Thanks so much for the kind words! It is always a pleasure watching our students go from brand new open water divers all the way to rescue divers, able to manage all of those crazy mock emergencies we throw them into. The whole team is excited for when you return for your dive master and research assistant internship! More

Nice stay and good school to learn fastly a lot of stuff. I entered diving world with this college in Utila really easily. Had experience in snorkling only before getting there. Got out of Utila with a great basis to be confident in 18m deep water. I recommand this school for any new diver on a trip in Honduras.
