Met a bunch of awesome people staying to do Dive Master which made it for us. We only did our AOW and it felt like we were an inconvenience. Still spent 5 more days fun diving with Mary, who was freakin' awesome. She is so much fun!

I took my open water certification in Utila Dive Center. I found that there was a lot of people doing their dive masters, so a lot of people had or will spend a lot of time there, so they didn't seemed so interested in meeting new people. We were 4 persons on the open water, and had one instructor and... More

I did the Open Water Diver with the UDC and it was a fantastic experience. The instructors are fabulous, the groups small and the equipment very good maintained. Also you get free accommodation, breakfast and free fun dives with booking a course :) Loved it!

Great dive shop. Did 7 fun dives with 2 great guides. Gear was all top notch and that was even when one of their boats was out of commission. Really great atmosphere and fun ppl. Bar is great at night, prices were good. Make sure and have a doughnut and try the pizza. Make bubbles not war!

Came here with friends late september with a group of 4. We were all doing a course but not all at the same level and some of us were doing 2 courses. Instead of the regular dorm they gave us a free upgrade into a cabin with a/c, water dispenser, clean bathroom, hammack on the porch.. Great! We were 6... More

I just spent three months on Utila and did my EFR, Rescue, Divemaster and IDC with UDC. Just wanted to leave a quick note say that this place MORE than exceeded my expectations. Knowledgeable staff, great facility, friendly atmosphere. The quality of instruction at UDC was also top notch - you can tell Andy and Jhair have been doing this... More

I just finished my Open Water Divers class with UDC and I am very happy I chose this organization. They were extremely professional, friendly and fun. The class size was very small, which allowed for a lot of personal attention from the instructors. And I really liked the strong commitment to safety that they displayed. Everyone I met was great,...

UDC is fantastic! We did our open water course (basic diving) with them but had to split it over a couple of visits. They were very accommodating and charged us nothing for the trouble it caused them. Our instructor, Vero, was outstanding. I couldn't speak highly enough of her. There were also more than enough accompanying divers on the course... More
