Great people, brilliant captain on the boat and top notch equipment! We planned staying one week, it ended up being way longer. Our instructor was one the best I've had the pleasure of diving with. And the routine of the whole crew is professional and layed back. Enjoy the bar next to the ocean and if you choose any (of... More

I loved this dive outfit. Everyone was friendly and really knew their stuff. The equipment was new and well maintained. It was a safe supportive place to learn. I ended up doing two courses here, one with Vero and one with Scott. Both instructors were fantastic. Right on the water with large comfortable dive boats.

I did my IDC to become instructor in Utila Dive Center. I can say this is an amazing center. They are very professionals. Now I know why the success's rate is so high ! But what I will remember all of my life is their human side. They are available, patients and really nice with the us. We are not... More

UDCC were professional, helpful and personable. Everyone we spoke to on the island recommended UDC and we did wonder if this was just marketing hype. However, we found the diving with UDC relaxing, enjoyable but also professional. Mary was a great dive guide and Ed gave us all manner of help and advice from where to eat to assistance with...

Utila is a great place to begin or advance your diving for two reasons. 1) It borders the second largest reef system in the world and 2) the costs are significantly lower than many other diving locations. UDC specifically is one of the most professional and quality driven schools that I've ever had the pleasure of diving with. I came... More

We really enjoyed our dives with UDC! We were a little skeptical at first because our first two days we had boat trouble, however this appears to be a fluke. We were very impressed with the instructors, leaders, and captains of the boats. We really had a great time overall. Mary and Hannah especially were just so great. Ryan was... More

Spent 3 weeks on Utila diving with UDC, did the rescue diver course and the enriched air as well as a number of fun dives. The dive instructors are amazing and the UDC community is great fun. I dived at one of the other places on the island to compare and they were no where near the same level as... More

I came to Utila for two weeks in Feb. 2015 and received my advanced certification at UDC. The only good part about getting my certification at UDC was my instructor, Millie (Amelia). She was a phenomenal instructor, hands down, but the rest of the team seemed contemptuous, cold, and all-around annoyed of dive students. The facility was great, the restaurant/bar... More

Utila Dive Center is the best place for snorkeling and scuba diving in Utila, hands down. Whether you want to just go for a week to do fun dives or go to become certified in open water, advanced, rescue, divemaster or even instructor, this is the place to be. They have the perfect blend of staff members who are equally... More
