quiet, peaceful, fun place to learn to dive

Class sizes are small, so you get almost 1 on 1 attention. And the small cay is very intimate. It's not too far from Utila town, but it feels completely different. Utila town is... read more

Class sizes are small, so you get almost 1 on 1 attention. And the small cay is very intimate. It's not too far from Utila town, but it feels completely different. Utila town is very touristy, where the cay has families that have lived there for generations. On a couple off days, I went fishing with a local named Melvin.... More

We traveled to Utila for 3 weeks in March 2015. It would not have been the same experience without Utila Cays Diving!!! Bogdan, Edgar and Mike (Jutta and Phil, too) are hands-down the best of the best! Prior to staying on the cays, we stayed in Utila Town. We ran into Bogdan, and he hooked us up with Mitch at...

this was another great experience with utila cays diving, the service is consistent and the dive masters are great. bogdan the owner is a pleasure to be around as are the skipper and other staff members. the boat is small (no cattle dive boats here) so you get as much attention/help as you would like and plenty of flexibility when...

We dove 2 days with UCD. They have a nice boat (covered). They were on time, they picked us up at our dock, used 2 dive masters who were very competent and friendly, provided a hearty snack between dives, had a dedicated boat driver, and found us some nice dive sites and wildlife. Overall, it feels like a relaxed operation... More

Spent a wonderful day with my friend Dana from Canada with Utila Cays Diving snorkeling in Cayos Cochinos. The trip there and back on Herman's dury "Daddy's Little Girl" was on perfect seas! Once there, we snorkeled in 2 spots and saw beautiful fans, parrot fish, a huge barracuda - and much more! We then headed to Chachauate Garifuna Village... More

I can’t say enough good about UCD. Everything from our email interaction with Bogdan before we arrived to our final day diving felt smooth, easy and relaxed. They excel at making everyone (including newbie divers) feel comfortable both in and out of the water. My husband and I did the Peak Performance Buoyancy course with Phil, and benefited greatly from... More

We had the opportunity to stay just across from Jewel Cay for a week in March at the Coral House on Treasure Beach. Bogdan and his crew were an integral part of our stay. From being our ride to the house upon arrival (and sharing tips and stories) to a 1/2 day scuba/snorkel trip to renting SUPs, the experience and... More

If you are looking for an awesome experience, check this place out. Timely and dependable correspondence, professional staff, and fantastic prices.

Bogdan at Utila Cays Diving has proved to me that Utila Cays Diving is the only way to go here in Utila. I have been down here for over a month now diving with another shop in town and finally had the chance today to go with UCD on a trip to cayos cochinos. Bogdan took care of everything and... More

My wife, 13 year old son, and I stayed at the Pinneapple House in Utila for ten days in February of 2015. We had completed our classroom and pool portions of our scuba certificate in Minnesota with hopes of doing our open water in Utila. Our renters Dave and Trish recommended Bogdan of Utila Cays Diving.
