My son received the highest honors at college. I offered to reward him with an adventure. We settled on dive certification. After extensive research, we selected Utilla Dive Center because of their wonderful rep and proximity to great dive sites. At the end if one week, my son realized he missed his calling; he trashed his academic success and decided he would become a dive instructor. I couldn't blame him. Our experience at UDC was so much more than just a dive adventure. We were welcomed into the UDC family with such sincere interest in us and our experience with them. The island of Utilla is not a five star stop, but the underwater sites, and the people at UDC are. At any rate, we returned 13 months later and my son stayed on as a dive master working with the others at UDC. He's heading back next year to complete his instructors cert.
Our personal thanks to Sarah and Declund who made us feel like family. We weren't alone there. They exude kindness and display such sincerity in attempting to make every diver's stay wonderful. I'm embarrassed at how short this falls in expressing the gratitude they deserve for the way they, and the owner, treat all who visit them. We've been to other dive centers throughout Central and South America since, but have yet to find the same degree of excellence found at UDC. Thanks again. Doug
