I did my PADI Advanced Open Water here at Parrots, and it was the best dive center I have been a part of. I have been diving in Thailand and Belize too, but the big difference is how the staff was kind, patient and our instructor, Shane, was very professional, competent and helpful. We choose to stay at the center... More

We came to Utila to do some diving having not dived since we did our open water several years ago! As we were staying at Rubis Inn we decided to dive with Parrots as you get a discount. Parrots offered us a good deal and we did a 2hours refresher course the next day which was $30 each plus tax.... More

Thank you for your review . We are happy to announce that the new wetsuits have arrived , it is Central America and wetsuits were withheld by customs longer than the regular one month wait . We do want to apologize for that situation, as we are always looking forward to give you the best dive gear ! Our scuba... More

I had a bit of a mixed experience at Parrots! I'll start with the positive - I did my open water course there and my instructor Gaby was fantastic, I loved every minute of the dives, and since I was the only person doing the open water on my dates, I got one on one training, which meant less time...

Every single correspondence that is sent to our potential customers who are booking online also clearly state that the tax is not included . It is very heartbreaking to read those words as we work way... More

I did two fun dives with this place and stayed in their accommodation for two nights in a private room. Let's start with the dive experience. After giving my sizes to them the day before I was given a bundle with my BCD, wet suit, mask etc half an hour before the dive. Wet suit was to big so asked... More

Took the Open Water and Advanced courses with Parrots Dive Center. Larson was my instructor and did an amazing job. He was very professional, a really awesome teacher, and knows how to make sure you have a blast on your dives. Would recommend diving at Parrots because they have patience, are effective teachers and most importantly, make the experience a... More

We stayed in Parrots Dive Center because it got recommended to us. We were also convinced to do our Open Water Dive Course there as it is one of the cheapest places and amazing reefs around here. On the first day we already got to know so many nice people and were instantly part of the community. I think that... More

We took our open water certificate at Parrots and we can't imagine a better place to learn to dive. Our wonderful instructors, Danny and Georgia, were fun, professional and super patient. Thank you for some great days! 👌🏻

Tatiana helped me out with ALL my questions and replied really quick via whazzap. Shane was there to pick us up at the dock and... More

We did our advanced scuba course with Parrots and we were very impressed by our instructor Danny and by the whole set up in Parrots. Everyone is really helpful, friendly and chilled. The level of training was excellent and any questions we had were given great attention. There is a really social side to the shop and over all we... More
