I did my open water and a couple of adventure classes at the school. The teachers are very nice and take teaching seriously. You are taught all needed skills thoroughly and repeatedly. The prices are comparable to other schools. You get free accommodations and free fun dives. Everyone is really nice and fun. They have a pool table, bar and... More

We spent a week diving with these folks and had an amazing time. We had a real mixed group with some advanced divers, some already certified but stale divers, one blind diver and four people who were there to get their open water certifications. The team devised a schedule that worked for everyone and kept us all together an amazing... More

On arrival (admittedly in low season), we just walked up and down the main strip and asked what was on offer and had a look around. Its definitely the best way to do it. We found the prices (with a private double room, not dorm, included) range from $248 to $360. We didn't opt for the cheapest, which is what... More

What a gem on Utila! Well run dive company with FANTASTIC dive masters! We dived for 5 days and can highly recommend Abby and Graham who were really friendly and enthusiastic divers. We basically got to choose which dive sites we wanted to do due to it been low season. Got to dive both sides of the islands along with... More

We spent a week in Utila and dived with BICD. The experience was mixed. First off it is obvious that the major thrust of this place is as a dive school. From all we heard it is a very reputable school and has a good teaching program. As a dive shop/operator they were more wanting. The basic organization of the... More

I took a huge gamble coming to Honduras for a month to do my Scuba Instructor Course and boy did it pay off! Nick the Course Director is one of the best mentors I have ever had. The IDC was informative, fast-paced but doable, and I felt like we had the best training not even on the island, but the... More

I made my Open Water Diver here and it was a wonderful time. There were always many instructions with us in the water so that we felt very safe. The dorm was big and comfortable. Everyone was very friendly. The vision on the open water dives was awesome. Everything was perfect. It was really hard to leave.

Stayed at BICD for a month to do my Open water and Advanced open water courses. At first I didn't know what to expect but quickly I realised that this place is off the charts. My instructor for both courses was Donna and she took me through the courses with a fun and professional approach. Its only been three weeks... More

We did our open water diver course here and we had a blast. The staff and instructors are very friendly and helpful, the dorm is nice and really spacious, the kitchen and the common areas on the roof have an awesome view, diving gear was good and the diving sites are absolutely beautiful. Would recommend everyone to do their courses... More
