    I had the best experience at the Bay Island College of Diving! I did my open water certification and adventure diver certification here. They were very flexible with my schedule and made sure I could accomplish everything I wanted! All of the staff and instructors were so welcoming, kind, and professional. They also made sure I had comfortable housing for the whole duration of my trip in Utila. They made it so hard to leave! I highly recommend diving with them!

    The lady at the front desk went out of her way to help us. She was by far the most friendly and helpful out of any of the school we visited. My two instructors Joseph and Marcus were both professional and enthusiastic! All the diving equipment was in excellent condition. To top it all off, the dive sites we visited were incredible. I’d highly recommend doing a night dive. Hands down the best diving experience I’ve had to date!

    For the volume of courses they teach and the amount of people they see this place does an amazing job. I am a person here instead of a number which is very important to me, having had a bad experience with that elsewhere on the island. I completed my PADI Divemaster Training and several speciality courses here. The level of instruction is top tier and the staff is both knowledgeable and professional. The best part of doing Divemaster here for me is the free diving for life. Because BICD is co-located with the Whale Shark Oceanic Research Center and Utila Lodge, free diving for life means there are more boats to get on and more diverse types of diving than any other dive center on the island. This is the only place that offers more than teaching boats - jumping on a resort boat - when it's an option is just a completely different and more enjoyable type of diving than being stuck on a boat in the middle of a rescue course. If you want a place that focuses both on providing you an amazing experience and top tier instruction - Open Water through Staff Instructor and Career Development - this is that place.

    I had an exceptional experience at BICD this past September. They were incredibly responsive and helped me organize a program to complete 3 specialties in just under a week. They picked me up from the airport and I was able to stay in an apartment on campus with a kitchen and balcony which was incredible considering the early scuba mornings. The restaurant they have on sigh it a great place to study and the food is delicious and very reasonably priced. The community is wonderful with everyone supporting each other and spending time outside the dives and class time, so I am definitely going back to do my dm in the future. As for the diving, my deep instructor, Kelsey, was beyond kind, informed and professional. I had a lot of fun on all my dives with her and feel very confident in my deep diving ability thanks to that course. Additionally, I took the navigation course and my instructor, Steven, was one of the most experienced divers I have met in my 10 years of diving. He was flexible with class times so we were able to get through the course work at a faster pace without sacrificing any understanding. I went from not knowing how to use a compass and just following the dive master without knowing where I was while diving, to feeling confident in my ability to remember exactly where I have gone in the dive and how to get to my end point. I am so grateful for my experience here and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in diving whether you have never done it before or are a very experienced diver, they have something to offer you. It’s well worth the difficulty of traveling to Utila!

    Recently I completed my divemaster certification at Bay Islands College of Diving. The program was wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone. Staff was professional and helpful with everything. They assisted me with lodging, places to eat and everything you can think off. I’ll definitely return for diving and/or additional training I may seek. .
