Voted best PADI Instructor center award by PADI
It's official, in 2012, 2011 and 2010 for the 3rd consecutive year PADI have nominated Utila Dive Centre for this honour, an unheard of accomplishment in the dive industry. This award is for the great standard and success achieved by our PADI Instructor courses and professional scuba diving internships.
Sport Diver, the scuba diving magazine, also gave us the best PADI IDC center award in 2010 and what makes this award even more special for our facility and staff, is that it was voted for by the diving community! In November 2011 at the DEMA dive show in the USA PADI President Drew Richardson presented our staff with this award in front of a 1000 strong audience of dive professionals.
For candidates considering their PADI Divemaster and Instructor training there's never been a more experienced, qualified, and awarded team and facility in which to distinguish yourself and to take your scuba diving internship.
