Hannah and Mary. Mary and Hannah. Lionfish curse them like Jack Palance cursed Tango and Cash. Expert dive instructors, fun, entertaining and the bane of Utilian lionfish. If you're diving in Utila, if you want little explored dive sites and a fantastic time ask for them by name. But they only work at UDC. So you its the only place... More

We spent a whole week diving with Utila Dive Centre, having a dive package for our travel party of ten people. Diving couldn't possibly be more fun and relaxing than with these guys! We enjoyed the personal and professional service of our diveguides Mary, Hannah and Brooke (two thumbs up for these ladies!) who manage to share their love and... More

We went fun diving with UDC, which has a lot of divers doing coursework. Mary and Hannah, who were the dive masters for the fun dive boat, were the best dive guides I have ever had (and we do a lot of diving trips in the Caribbean. We are lionfish trackers, and travel a lot to hunt this invasive species.... More

I did my open water course at UDC and at first I was pretty nervous about it. My instructors Dani and Pablo were super great, very enthusiastic about diving and really helped me feel comfortable in the water. They let you move at your own pace and didn't push you to do the skills until you felt ready. I learned... More

I couldn't be happier with UDC! The operation runs smooth and the staff is really, really friendly. Great atmosphere around the shop and there's a barbecue every week. The wetsuits are a little worn and it's not the best fins but that's the same everywhere in Utila. I recommend you bring your own if you have it.

On my arrival I was approached by different dive shops representatives trying to drag you in to their businesses right away. I am not a very trustful person so i decided to find out by myself which dive shop was the better option... More

We based our trip starting on Utila island in Honduras. I had never dived before, so required getting my Open Water certification. After some research, we decided on the Utila Dive Center. I am so glad we did! I couldn't have asked for a better experience! My instructor, Jemma, was super helpful, and incredibly professional! I felt very confident the... More
