I’m the woman who never vacations in the same place twice, and I’m back to write a third review singing Bogdan’s praises. I convinced my mom, who had a horrendous experience as a new diver in Cozumel, to brave a global pandemic to dive with me here, and my coup de grace in convincing her was the extraordinarily personalized attention and the utmost professionalism that Bogdan and his team brought to the curated experience. Unfortunately, I was unable to make the trip due to a personal issue, but I was able to experience the trip vicariously through the dozens of photos of my mom, beaming at the camera, before and after diving, on her way to late lunch, at Neptune Beach, and so much more, some of which Bogdan was kind enough to send me. From helping us book flights to and from San Pedro to Utila and our accommodations on Jewel Cay, collecting her from Utila on a water taxi, and taking her to lunch on the first day to making sure her diving skills were up to par before her first dives, diligently pointing out and educating her on the various marine life in the Cays and handling all equipment preparation, cleaning and storage, Bogdan’s team went above and beyond to ensure her experience was an unforgettable one.

If you are looking for great diving in a fantastic, laid back locale - head for Utila and dive with Utila Cays Diving (UCD). Our family of five (adult kids) dove for a week with Bogdan, Mike & Captain Alton while renting a villa on Utila's south shore near Utila Cays. From start to finish, the experience was great. These guys are safe, professional, knowledgeable - and a lot of fun to hang out with on a surface interval. The valet service they provide was amazing - and may have spoiled us for future trips! Note: If, outside of dive time, you are looking for nightlife, 5 star restaurants and a nearby supermarket, this may not be the location for you. If you are after relaxation that is a bit off the beaten path; simple, wonderful local food; awesome sunrises/sunsets & nights spent gazing at incredible stars, read on for details. We put our trip together just a couple of weeks in advance when another trip cancelled due to COVID. Pre-trip planning & communication with Bogdan was prompt, easy and excellent. By departure day, I was confident he understood our plans & our diverse rental requirements, as our group had a wide mix of owned equipment/rental needs. The experience, once we arrived, was 100% personalized, since we were a large enough group that we would be the only people on the boat. Bogdan came to our villa for initial paperwork & briefing and to collect gear. More importantly he confirmed our emailed plans and asked great questions to get a sense of our group, our experience and what we would be comfortable doing over the next several days. Bogdan also made sure appropriate COVID measures were in place - we were 100% comfortable about this throughout the trip. Logistics throughout the week were simple thanks to UCD. They picked us up at our villa in the morning, we showed up with snorkel/fins/mask and everything else was on board and ready. Dives were planned based on conditions and plans for lunch (on 3 dive days) were in place. At the end of the day, we agreed to the next day's plan - and the cycle repeated. We were able to customize each day - Bogdan even got me home one day on time to make a business call that intruded on my vacation. This was our second dive trip as a group - all of us had gotten OW certs about a year earlier. I cannot say enough about how great Bogdan & DM Mike made our trip. The first couple of dives - with both of them diving with our group of 5 - they accurately assessed where our skill/comfort levels were in the water. For the rest of the week, they perfectly balanced being attentive and letting us enjoy the dives on our own. Their knowledge of the dive sites was great & they pointed out many things during our dives that we would have likely overlooked. The highlight of the trip for us was that we came home much better divers thanks to UCD! We were loving the diving enough to ask them to add a third daily dive for a couple of days and they were happy to accommodate. Better yet, Bogdan & Mike encouraged us to take on more challenges throughout the week - swim throughs, drift dives, etc. They never pushed us to do anything we were not comfortable with, but they took the time to tell us what they thought we could take on & took the time to teach us things. We would have had a great trip doing basic dives - instead we came home with our deep dive sign off and an incredible wreck dive and ready to enjoy diving even more in the future. We simply cannot thank them enough for this! Finally, we have no words for how much we enjoyed spending time with Bogdan, Mike, Alton - and everyone we met in "the Cays." This is a small, tight knit community, but so very welcoming. A fantastic experience!

My family made our first trip to Utila in March and we couldn't be happier with the service we received from Utila Cays Diving. From our first communication to our last day on the island Bodgan and his staff were extremely helpful and most importantly made you feel welcome from the moment you arrived! The diving was fantastic, but what sets Utila Cays Diving apart is their knowledge to pick the right dive sites for the day, and their ability to adapt to the divers on board. For most of our trip it was only our family and one other diver, so the personalized service was unparalleled. The dive masters and boat captain are very personable and it was a pleasure getting to know them. Diving with Utila Cays Diving was the highlight of our trip. We look forward to diving with Utila Cays in the future!

In October of 2019 I made my latest of many trips to Utila. My wife and I go back every other year. Sometimes we stay in town and sometimes we go to the cays to get away from it all. When we go to the cays we always dive with Utila Cays Diving. Bogdan the owner has turned into a family friend. Utila Cays Diving goes above and beyond giving you the dive experience you would like. They go to amazing dive sites not many other shops go to. The Cays is small laid back islands. This is a place you can really relax on vacation. The vibe is much different from Utila town, but don’t underestimate how peaceful getting away from it all can be.

My family took our fourth trip to the Cays on Utila. Once again we stayed at Hotel Kayla and dove with Bogdan and Mike at Utila Cays Diving. In addition to the awesome dive experience with Bogdan and Mike, we continue to go here because we are imbedded with the locals in a non-commercialized environment. We have created friendships with folks like Christie who cooks us authentic meals, her husband Melvin who catches the fish and will take you fishing, Herman who will take you anywhere in his boat, Daphne (Herman's wife) who cooks for us at their restaurant, and all the other locals who make you feel at home. If you are looking for a place to get away, that's low key and mellow, this is the place for you!
