One of the original dive shops on the Island, Utila Water Sports has been in operation since 1988. With a full makeover just completed, now is a great time to visit us. As the one of the only dive centers on the island that offer both SSI and PADI training, Utila Water Sports dive shop is in a unique position where our instructors can help you choose the best course and training program to suit your goals.
