Cheap dive shop in Utila. Accomodation was included if you were diving that day. If not diving the price was 5 dollars. You get what you pay for as it is very basic, and the bathrooms are not very nice. Staff were helpful with info on diving. The gate to the accomodation is locked by night. There are many tuck...

I chose Parrots after having read a good review online, which I'm so happy I read because we had the best week at Parrots and were sooo sad to leave. I did my Open Water with Ernesto - definitely ask if you can have him as an instructor - he is absolutely hilarious but also a super good, passionate teacher... More

From the first email sent, to the final goodbyes from our 10 days scuba dive trip, everything as perfect. So flexible, so friendly, so inclusive. 3 years later, I still feel apart of the family! I'd recommend Parrots for any of your Utila dive needs. Great price and you get much more then you pay for. If you came to... More

I did my rescue course and my divemaster with parrots and it was the best choice I could make. Before arriving on the island, I booked my courses in a different dive shop. But after the first day I knew this wasn't a right place for me. So I decided to shop around and I ended up at parrots. During... More

I was traveling in Central America last year and wasn't even planning to dive. During my trip I heard amazing things about utila and specifically about parrots and changed my route so I could check it out. It wound up being the best part of my trip. I fell in love with diving and with all the people I met.... More

I completed my Open Water course with Parrots in May 2016. Although I completed the course successfully and enjoyed the diving experience I was generally disappointed with the service delivered by Parrots Dive Centre for the following reasons: 1. The instructor Danny left me with the impression that he does not enjoy teaching diving and often seemed impatient when I... More

I enjoyed diving on Utila and Parrots while traveling back in 2014. Enjoyed the Locally owned shop and professional staff so much decided to come back nine months later to do my divemaster. If your looking for any scuba certifications, Utila has great diving, and Parrots is a fun place. Headed back Soon!

I came to Utila and wanted to do my Rescue Diver, ended up staying two months and doing my Divemaster with Parrots. They have new equipment, staff is helpful and there's a super nice family atmosphere. Diving there is not the cheapest on the island, but you get what you pay for. They go to the beautiful north side everyday... More

Parrots is a good dive school for instruction but disappointing on other fronts. We did our open water PADI with them. The instruction was safe and thorough. Grace is so lovely, as was Shane (when he was in a good mood). The bad: Tatiana (the owner) promised us many things to get us into the course which simply never happened.... More

Great bunch of locals! The staff is super friendly and very helpful. I've been taking dive courses from Parrots since 2013. From my Open Water Course to my Rescue Diver course, these guys made getting certified an absolute blast!
