Overview
We are known worldwide as the Premier Training Center in the Caribbean and we pride ourselves on that reputation! Here are a few reasons I feel set us apart:
• We have the most experienced instructors on the island – all of them Master Scuba Dive Trainers which is one level above a traditional instructor – and they lend that experience and passion to all our courses.
• We have the newest and most advanced facilities including state-of-the-art classrooms, back-up compressors and generators, and our very our Marina.
• We have a fleet of 5 boats – the fastest and largest on the island, so you won’t be crammed on an overloaded slow boat as you head out to a dive site.
• We are the only dive center on the island that offers the course with a dive computer – and that’s because we don’t want to just certify our students, we want to make them real passionate divers and learning how to use a dive computer is an essential part of that if you are serious about diving!

It is a relaxed place, in which Anton, my instructor of the Open Water and Advanced Open Water courses, with a lot of patience, managed to share his knowledge and in this way I will always be grateful for my dream.

When I finally committed to furthering my scuba education (divemaster), I asked my hometown dive homies where they would recommend I head. Without pause, they said Utila. So, now I know I'm headed to Utila, but WHERE am I going to land for actual training? I did SO MUCH
