Owner description: 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.

I did my advanced course last week through Utila Water Sports. Never been to a place that cares more about their divers. Josie helped me with any detail I needed for my trip, not just diving. Wagner was an A+ captain. Andrea was an awesome instructor. This is definitely a diving shop that I recommend everyone doing their courses with or just diving in general.

I went to Utila to do my PADI. Peter who has a shuttle service in La Ceiba recommended Utila Water Sports to me. Although the weather conditions were really tough: storms and a lot of rain, I was able to finish the PADI in 4 days. The dive centre even organized a pool dive for me, because no boats were allowed to leave the harbour. Everyone at water sports was super friendly and helpful. The accommendation was very clean, spacious an well equiped, especially the kitchen. My dive instructor was Andrea and she explained everything so clearly, so I was able to dive very quickly. We had small groups for the freedives, no more than 3 people and I had one to one tuition by Andrea for the PADI. I always felt very confortable thanks to Andrea's clear instructions and explanations and I saw a lot of marine animals which was really cool. Our captain Wagner was good fun and we always had fruits after each dive. Yummy. I went on 4 more freedives which was really cool fun. I can highly recommend Utila water sports for scuba diving!!!!!

Utila Water Sports is the best option if you want to focus on learning how to dive or improving your skills.
It has the best price and the nicest accomandation. All students stay in a great house in a super nice central location.

staff is super helpful! No Parties but there are plenty of alternatives on the island if desired.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a nice stay. We were in a mixed room, two double beds and a single bed. Rooms were clean and had a non suite. We had to share the room with a couple on the first and third night so they tended to keep the couples together which is good for solo travellers.

The room had excellent air con which was a lifesaver with the heat! We had wifi in the room and seating areas outside with some nice chairs, sofa and some comfy hammocks!

We didn't do any diving, we asked to do some paddle boarding and they recommended the lagoon which was a HORRIBLE idea, the water was disgusting and after a while (when we realised the water quality wasn't improving) we turned around.

Location was good because a lot of local amenities (good cafes and AWEOSME beach, 5 minutes into town).

When we walked around we thought there were nicer places to stay, but don't know if these were more expensive!

We are a Hostel with share mix accommodation ( Not many people is use to this but for the budget they prefer to do it knowing the advantages and disadvantages ) the private rooms are available for $65 a night.
Compare to the hostel around the area UTILA WATER SPORTS has the best accommodation maybe this HOSTEL style is just not for you.
We recommended the lagoon went the wind in the bay is to strong to avoid bad experiences the lagoon is not a place for swimming.
