The PADI level 1 course at UDC was incredible. I felt so safe and comfortable. Nikki and Rich were truly spectacular masters, they were patient, fun and love the sport. The world famous BBQ is also a must!

THANK YOU!!

Soo scuba diving was fun
Pat D. was the absolute best PADI open water instructor. He was the most patient, knowledgeable, professional, fun and encouraging. Our first scuba experience was a blast and my friends and I couldn’t have done it without him and his amazing team like Bobby, intern and helpers.

UDC is an amazing dive center and I can’t wait to one day come back again

My significant other and I did the Open Water course at Utila Dive Center. At UDC you will get professional, high-level scuba education, but also an amazingly fun, friendly, relaxed environment. EVERYONE, from instructors to divemasters to admin staff, was so friendly and helpful! Our instructors, Mat and Tiernan, were excellent, they were truly invested in making sure we understood and mastered each skill and were helpful and encouraging whenever we struggled with something. They also brought a lot of humor and fun to the course, even in the "drier" classroom portions. Our divemasters Bobby and Lauren were wonderdul too and really helped us feel comfortable in the water! The equipment and facilities at UDC were top notch, and we also very much enjoyed the food there, especially the pastellitos Lots of people will tell you they only planned to come to UDC for 2 weeks and ended up staying for 2 months (or more), and it's easy to see why. We'll definitely be back!

Yay diving!!!!

I did Divemaster Training, Instructor Development Course, Master Scuba Diver Training and internship with Utila Dive Center. Long story short I had so much fun!! Instructors were strangers when I arrived but after 3 months in Utila I feel they are my family. All the instructors are very friendly with good sense of humor but very professional at the same time. They have solutions for all my questions, that helped me grow as a pro diver. I highly recommend UDC for pro trainings. Many thanks for Nico, Rich, Levi, Maca, Anton, Matt and Patrice!
