We did our Advanced open water course with Chaz and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The 2:1 student teacher ratio was ideal and Chaz was an excellent and fun instructor! The dive shop has a great, laid back vibe and although the accommodation is basic, overall it's a great deal. We highly recommend this place!

Look no further than Gunter's Ecomarine Dive Shop when diving on Utila. They offer more flexibility than other dive shops, have the best prices, and are extremely friendly on top of everything else. You aren't pressured into diving or courses, but they let you inquire about where YOU want to go. In fact, you are more likely to be approached... More

I was planing on diving with them so I went to their hostel the first night. The room was extremely basic, but that's ok, it's a hostel. However, the (shared) bathrooms are in such a poor condition, that can barely be used. No toilet paper, not even talk about soap to wash your hands before eating. The dive shop has... More

Well it is a nice place to be there at Gunters! We have been there doing some divingcourses for two weeks. They do a good job but nevertheless there are also some weird to strange instructors! Try to get rid of them and ask for Ernesto or Aiden!! Both are amazing!!

A really nice service gesture we got from Gunters Ecomarine Dive Shop was that they were waiting for us at the ferry dock.  They had arranged this for us in advance so instead of walking or taking a cab to our hotel, they had their dive boat there to take us and our luggage back to their dive shop where...

It was my first trip to Utila and to do diving, I completed my dsd course under Travs supervision and I really enjoyed it. Eco is a great friendly place where everyone is welcoming! Best place to dive by far!

Hi recently spent 7 days in Utila and did all my diving with the fantastic Gunther's Ecomarine Dive Shop run by Tara and Captain Steve :-) I did 8 dives with them to a host of different sites all around the island on their dive boat Salva Vida with small groups (maximum 10/12 but most of the time just 4/6)....
