I took my open water dive course with those guys. Though I had a hard time getting under the water cos I couldn't equalize but they helped me until I did it and got certified.

Arriving on the island, we visited almost all the diving shops. We felt most 'at home' at Parrots. After I finished my open water, I also did my advanced. I love diving right now and it's also because of the great people and instructors of...More

The staff were so rude when we went to check in here that we walked out. So many dive shops on the island, we saw enough within 5 minutes. Can't vouch for anything else though

So here's the deal, there are a ton of dive shops on Utila that you can choose from. If you don't have something set up in advance, don't worry, every dive shop sends instructors out to the ferry landing to try and recruit you, so...More

We had a great time with Parrots! Our instructor Anthony and Larsson were the best! We would recommend everyone to go there, especially well equipped, small groups and always safety first.

I recently visited Utila to get my PADI Open Water certification, and couldn't be happier with my experience at Parrots. I had never dove before and getting started was a little intimidating, but my two instructors (Georgia and Anthony) put all my reservations at ease....More

Parrots is one of the friendliest dive centers on Utila. First off I love that it's Honduran owned and having dived with another big dive center on the island appreciate that the vibe is more chilled, personal and less like a factory. I dived numerous...More

I am looking to stay on Utila for 1-2 months while going from advanced to dive master early next year. I am wondering what people do for accommodations during their stay and how much this costs on average. Also if you can let me know what to expect in terms of moderate food and drink cost for your length of stay it would really help me get a rough estimate for my trip costs. Thanks!
