Dive Courses at Utila Lodge

For many people, a vacation just means getting time off work to drink margaritas on a beach in some distant land. While we aren’t opposed to enjoying a cocktail (or four) while sitting in a lounge chair by the Caribbean, we want our guests to get more out of their vacation. We want you to get more than just hangovers during your stay with us – Instead, we want you to learn new skills that you can take with you the rest of your life while making lasting memories in the process.

Open Water Course

By completing your Open Water Course, you are opening your world to a lifetime of new adventures. During your stay with us, you’ll be taught all the essential skills for safe diving practices and then use these skills out on Utila’s amazing coral reefs. The calm waters that surround the island provide an easy environment for beginners to hone their skills – it’s no wonder tens of thousands people come to Utila every year for dive courses. Come join the fun and enter the World of Diving!

Advanced Open Water

Did you enjoy your Open Water Course? Are you ready to take it to the next level? Then the Advanced Open Water Course is for you! During this course, you’ll be able to dive deeper, dive ship wrecks, and dive at night. Widely regarded as the most fun recreational course that PADI offers, this is where you will take important steps in becoming a better diver. It is through this course that you will find a newfound confidence in your underwater abilities – then your possibilities are endless!

Rescue Diver Course

The PADI Rescue Diver Course is a hands on training program focused on giving you the confidence to effectively affect a rescue scenario on the water. By the end of the course you will have the ability to respond to panicked, tired, distressed, unconscious, and missing divers. These are very important skills to have for those that wish to dive throughout their life. If you don’t want to be the person who can’t help out in an emergency situation, then this course is for you.*
