I did the PADI open water diver course here. Incredible value with accommodation included. Cookie and Amber were fantastic teachers, made learning easy. Great atmosphere around the hostel and really safe. 4 stars and not 5 due to the heat in the dorms, no air flow through the room meant some pretty uncomfortable sleeps as well as the slightly dodgy...

I stayed with Underwater Vision with 3 buddies. We stayed in one of the four person dorm rooms (no a/c, but that was our choice). We ended up staying longer than planned just because of the atmosphere and the excellent diving. We each did a course and found the instructors very accommodating and friendly. Underwater Vision has a very good... More

Did my Advanced and Rescue Dive courses their and it was fantastic. Cookie, the instructor, was awesome as were all the other instructors and dive masters. Learned a lot. Got the private room with AC and my own bathroom, which were a god send. Awesome location. All the staff were super friendly and accommodating. Would definitely go back and dive... More

I've been on a few dives with underwater vision and thoroughly enjoyed every moment! Highlight was a night dive led by Mikey: After an excellent pre-dive briefing, we went to a lovely site where we saw rays, eels and magical bioluminescence. Mikey took the time to show us nocturnal life on the reef that I would not have noticed on... More

I was absolutely stunned and impressed by the enthusiasm, safety, fun and great teaching from my dive instructor (MIKEY). I hadn't dived for about 3 years and after the afternoons sessions felt amazingly confident! Would VERY highly recommend!!

I did my wreck and Nitrox certifications here and highly recommend it. I was super lucky to get Mikey as my instructor - he is a fantastic teacher! I found him to be an extremely knowledgable and attentive instructor. He went over all the necessary skills and content with me and I felt well prepared for each dive. Moreover, he... More

I spent close to six months training, working and, best of all, diving with the crew at Underwater Vision. Every moment was an absolute blast and the fact that I originally went to Utila to stay for only a week or two of diving, but ended up staying for so long, is a testament to the amazing staff and family...
