EXPLORE AN INCREDIBLE NEW WORLD
Come Diving with Us
Did you know that diving in the Bay Islands is considered some of the best in the world? Lonely Planet called it 'one of the top ten places in the world' to take a dive course, National Geographic named Utila as having the most accessible and pristine water in the world, and Divers International exclaimed that if you want to see the greatest diversity of sea life for the best value, you should come to the Bay Islands.
We know that it's our little oasis of paradise, where you can learn to dive in pristine waters abundant with fish, sea creatures and gorgeous coral at prices that can compete globally. And that sounds pretty good to us too.
Discover Scuba Diving
Start taking your first breaths underwater right away! Try it out first before committing to a full certification course or if you are short on time on your holiday. Your experience includes a detailed briefing from an experienced Instructor, followed by a few brief skills right off of our private dock, in shallow water. You can then choose to do one or two dives under the direct supervision of the instructor to a maximum depth of 12m / 40ft. We can conduct the dives on our beautiful house reef, but to get the most of the experience, we recommend diving off of our boat at two different dive sites.
Certified Open Water Diver
Your passport to discovering the underwater world is the Open Water Certification, recognized globally. The course is divided into 3 sections: theory development, skill practice in shallow water, and 4 open water dives. The theory section consists of 5 chapters, 5 videos and 5 knowledge reviews to discuss with your instructor, followed by 4 quizzes and 1 final exam to test your understanding. The video also provides a preview of the skills to be performed in confined water right off of the dock.
Certified Advanced Open Water Diver
The course is designed so you can go straight into it from the Open Water Diver Course, as it helps to increase your confidence and build on your underwater skills. It consists of 5 adventure dives, including Deep and Navigation, as well as your choice of 3 more adventure dives.
Higher Level Certifications
A very challenging yet rewarding experience, the Rescue Diver course prepares you to prevent, prepare for and respond to problems that might occur in the diving world. You will become competent at self rescue as well as recognizing and managing stress in other divers. The skills and realistic scenarios will give you practice rescuing both panicked and unresponsive divers, underwater and at the surface.
During the Divemaster program, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems as well as help others improve their scuba.
