Welcome to Utila Water Sports! We are a small family owned shop (one of only a few that are locally owned and the 3rd oldest here on the island) with experienced instructors and dive masters. We specialize in top quality scuba diving instruction through either PADI or SSI.

  • Small Classes (maximum 5 students per class) Small groups enable more personal attention from the instructor to guarantee that the skills needed to dive safely and comfortably are not just achieved but mastered. During your 4 open water dives, small groups allow more time for diving as skills are completed in a shorter time than with larger groups.
  • Best deal on the island We offer diver training with either PADI or SSI (with SSI you save an additional $25 per course as they don’t require the purchase of books). We are also the only shop on the island to include 2 free fun dives upon completion of your course makes your course price/value with Utila Water Sports unbeatable.
  • Fast comfortable boats ‘The Manta’ is a 32' foot custom-built dive boat with a spacious rear sun deck. She allows easy deep water entry via 'James Bond' style backwards roll and as one of the fastest boats on the island ensures we have pick of Utila's numerous stunning dive sites. For larger groups, we use ‘The Overtime’ a 36' foot-custom built dive boats which also allows easy deep water entry via Giant Stride. Both boats have a comfortable roof deck perfect for sunbathing during surface intervals.
  • Regular North Side Diving and whale shark excursions.
  • Courses structured around student needs Learn in an unrushed atmosphere; take as much time to complete the course without accruing additional fees.
  • Courses available in many languages The instruction is available in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Danish, Italian, Flemish and German. We also have manuals and materials in many other languages: Hebrew, Japanese etc...
