I recently obtained my Rescue Diver, Emergency First Responder and Dive Master certifications at Underwater Vision. I was truly impressed with the level of professionalism and attention to Padi standards. But in addition to being a five star IDC center, Underwater Vision offers more than diving. This is a family of ocean ambassadors, where friendships are forged in the midst of a passion for improving your diving skills.

Also, great location, clean accommodations, and the only scuba shop beach volleyball court on the island.

Aside from being extremely impressed with the instructors and staff, the numerous activities throughout the week encouraged a team and family environment. Needless to say, I truly recommend Underwater Vision for anyone who is looking learn more about diving and have a great time meeting people from all over the world.

A big shout out to some of the best instructors I've ever come across:
*Sofie Orsntedt
*Mikey Doyle
*Nico Weissbein
*Anthony Caballero
*Jake Gerber
*Johnny Mcneils



And thank you to Tammy Cooper for the amazing hospitality and for all the fun times at the shop. Unforgettable!!!

This place is perfect for a few days in Utila. The rooms are clean, updated. Hot water/AC. I had everything I needed even a fridge and microwave. Tamy is fantastic so make sure you ask her about tips and tricks.

I did my PADI Advanced Open Water course at Underwater Vision and despite my hesitation and nerves, I had an incredibly good experience. All of the staff at Underwater Vision are super friendly, helpful and make you feel like you are a part of their diving family. My instructor Nico was fantastic - he was extremely patient with me while I was relearning the equipment, and he genuinely wanted everyone to learn and have a good time. Katie was also amazing - patient, helpful and made the learning experience even better. The accommodations were basic but acceptable considering it's free while you're doing a dive course (although the kitchen really needs some love!). I would without a doubt recommend Nico and Underwater Vision to anyone looking to do their Advanced Open Water course in Utila!
