If you’re a complete beginner but interested in a new career path as a scuba diving professional, or if you are currently certified as a recreational diver with a certification between PADI Open Water and PADI Rescue Diver (or qualifying certification from another dive training agency) and you wish to become a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor, then we’ve developed the following scuba training packages and internships to help you make your dream come true.
We're definitely not the cheapest facility worldwide (and don't want to be!), but we do represent excellent value and affordable Caribbean living, and when you invest in your training and diving with us, we guarantee you will have made the right choice and will benefit for the lifetime of your dive career. Our staff, facility, training programs and options, reputation, and commitment to you separate us from the cheaper and inferior options, and we are here for you long after the course is over! There's a reason why PADI Americas and Sport Diver (Official publication of the PADI Diving Society) nominated us 'Best PADI IDC center' in 2012, 2011 and 2010, and why many other PADI IDC centers look to us and imitate our programs and offerings.

New for 2013 - International Yacht Training
Martime Dive Boat Crew and Captain Courses
Exciting news for PADI pro's as we're expanding our amazing and comprehensive curriculum and course offerings and partnering with International Yacht Training (IYT) to offer the Dive Boat Mate and Coxswain/Captains programs to develop PADI professionals maritime knowledge and skills including practical boat driving experience. The Dive boat Mate courses were introduced due to demand from the diving industry and cover components relating to health, safety, engineering, legal and competency aspects that are required to safely operate such a boat.
The IYT/PADI Dive Boat Mate is being offered and scheduled in conjunction with our PADI Divemaster and MSDT internships, and we will be offering training all year round and e-learning is best completed independently prior to arriving on Utila and supported with our Instructors remedial training. The IYT Dive Boat Mate course allows our PADI pro's to start tendering and driving boats as second command, logging sea time and once an individual has completed 180 days (4 hours = 1 day) of sea time, as dive boat crew, they are eligible to take the IYT Coxswain Boat Captains course, which we also offer at Utila Dive Centre.
For candidates who are training to become PADI Instructors with us on our MSDT program, there is also the option to qualify as an IYT/PADI Dive Boat Mate Instructor, thereby increasing your own employment prospects and that of the future PADI Divemasters you train, and increasing your earnings potential and own maritime teaching experience.

There's never been a better time to train as a PADI Divemaster or Scuba Instructor, with a growing dive industry worldwide, but also in recent years the expansion and growth of the yachting industry and recreational superyachts, makes this the perfect compliment to enhance your dive training and employability in dive resorts, and on day boats, liveaboard vessels and superyachts worldwide. Utila Dive Centre is the perfect facility to gain this experience and training, with a fleet of 6 licensed vessels for carrying passengers and dive crew, and with our own on-site docking area, bay and harbour for practice maneuvers, and dive trips scheduled every day to dive sites with mooring posts, and with drift dives, this is the perfect facility and location to gain experience and a maritime certification though book early as we have very limited spaces on these programs each month/quarter (just 8 places each month for every IYT Dive Boat Mate course and 8 places each Quarter for IYT Captain/Coxswains course).
