The college offers great instructors, a wonderful atmosphere for learning, and fantastic facilities. Mat Wyte is the new manager at the College and is great about making sure everyone gets involved with the group and immediately feels like... More

The College of Diving is not just a well-run shop with several large, fast boats, on-site lodging and meals, welcoming and professional staff, large dining area with separate bar and huge dock. They offer fantastic fun dives, PADI standard courses, specialty training, an on-site hyperbaric chamber/medical facility, flexible scheduling, and an enthusiasm for adaptive diving. Personally, I arrived at the... More

I came to utila because a friend recommended it. I had never been snorkeling or diving or ever thought about it. I decided to do my open water course and was like that was pretty cool. But if it wasn't for my instructors Justin and Max I don't think I would have pushed through. I am now open water, advanced,... More

Went to BICD to get my Open Water Certificate. The professional staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in the water and back on land. They certainly have created a great atmosphere that welcomes all. My instructor, Justin, was awesome. His professional, yet fun attitude made you really enjoy yourself while also feeling very safe. I would... More

BICD is a great dive shop with even better people. The staff is extremely welcoming and offered us our first night free! The dorm rooms are comfortable and cheap especially if you are diving. Will definitely come back!

After hearing a rave review from a family friend, I had decided BICD was the right choice to do my Divemaster training. And it didn't disappoint. When I had first arrived, scheduling and a few smaller things seemed to be in disarray or neglected. My concerns were soon relieved with the arrival of Mat who took a handle on scheduling... More

To start, this place was overall, great. I loved the people and the IDC I took through the college. The people in my opinion were the best part. Sunday fundays included everyone from all over and I always felt at home. I love these people and they did a great job hosting me for 3 months. I want to be... More
