BICD is the greatest dive experience in the world. The staff is so warm, helpful, and friendly they feel like family. They're also incredibly patient and provide as much personal attention as you need. I never want to dive w/ anyone else! Love you, Rebecca, Donna, and John! 😘

This is the best dive shop on the island!!! They are efficient, safe, do excellent fittings and are lots of fun! The Utila lodge next door has a great breakfast sandwich you can eat before you go...and even take an extra one to eat between dives!! We dive/snorkel with them 4 trips per year!!

We learned so much from the Nitrox certification course. The instructors took the time to make sure we understood the basic principles and were excellent on the dives as well.
