I just read a reply from the manager of this place, to a review I made last year. I'm writting this only to state that the reply was full of lies, the manager was clearly manipulating facts... anyways, if you don't mind being forced to dive with hard rain, or to do an "advanced" dive along with open water's students,...

I went with my sister and a friend to Little Corn and to specifically dive with Dolphin Dive after a friend’s recommendation and they didn’t disappoint. Even with a slight scheduling mix-up in the beginning, Adam (runs the shop) quickly fixed it for us and we were on our way to diving 20 dives that week. My sister was doing... More

Diving with Dolphin Dive was an amazing experience. The instructors were very fun and helpful about everything. I got my open water certification within a couple of days, and later enjoyed many dives in the beautiful reefs around Little Corn. Dolphin Dive is the way to go if you are looking for a beautiful place to dive with an amazing... More

This was such a perfect experience! I was able to get certified and get up to my 14th dive at Dolphin Dive, and every time was breathtakingly beautiful. I always felt safe, and every dive was more than worth it. And the night dives are the best! Try it-- you won't be disappointed! The instructors are calm, easy to talk... More

As a PADI Rescue Diver I am always cautious of where I dive and never rush into a dive lodge with a set of fins and mask, without checking out the facilities and vibe first. I was absolutely delighted to find Dolphin Dive after I wandered into another dive shop but wasnt served and was fairly much ignored sadly but... More

Adam was great. He went out of his way to be sure I had all the information I needed prior to arrival. He even emailed me the week of our trip to let me know that spots were filling up, so we could be sure to get dives scheduled. (Sidenote: He responds to email faster than anyone else on the... More

I had Steph as an instructor for my Advanced OW at Dolphin Dive this past week and the dives were unbelievable. I would highly suggest the Night dive here for the bioluminescent life on these reefs. Also lots of nurse sharks, sting rays, and turtles which I hadn't seen any of on my Basic OW at Utila! I read in... More

First the good: Our instructor, Brendan, was awesome. It was our first time diving and we did the open water certification. He was very laid back and made us feel very comfortable. The bad: The manager (owner?) Adam, however, rushed us through the book portion of the course and seemed to have a snarky comment every time we saw him.... More

acdiver, Manager at Dolphin Dive, responded to this review

I apologise that these customers did not fully enjoy their experience. For us to be able to run courses with multiple students it is important that we have a schedule and aim to stick to it. For that reason we always state the start time AT 8.30am, never "around", especially if there are other students who we do not want... More

Did a single morning dive with Dolphin Dive (dive #2 of the morning was cancelled due to the conditions). Easy setup, divemaster Stefano seemed competent and the boat ride was straight-forward and easy. Dive spot was OK (we got a relatively "bad" day). Definitely would go diving with them again.

We got our Open Water certification at Dolphin Dive and couldn't be happier. On our three day course, we saw nurse sharks, stingrays, starfish, cowfish, trumpetfish and sea turtles – all while learning the basics of diving from confident, excellent instructors. It was exactly the active getaway that we were looking for. With the open water package (certification for two... More
