Also known as Cayos Cochinos Divers. We are a remote scuba diving and snorkeling safari service running trips from La Ceiba and Sambo Creek on the coast of Honduras to the Cayos Cochinos Marine Park (a group of two small islands and 13 small coral keys). PID offers day trips or multi-day packages for snorkelers, divers, and explorers. We also offer recreational PADI dive courses from beginner to master scuba diver as well as professional dive courses. We describe ourselves as a scuba Safari outpost so people understand that we are not a resort and should think of overnight stays on the island more like camping with cabins. We are more for the easy going, roughing it, adventurous type of diver looking for inexpensive good diving. Packages include transport to Cayos Cochinos, dive gear, lodging and meals. * 10 Pack of dives, 4 days, 3 nights ($425) *Open Water , Advanced Open Water, Rescue courses, 3 days, 2 nights ($336), * Day trips: Snorkeling ($40), diving ($84-$95).

We took two diving trips with Tony and had a great time! We went to several great dive sites and the water was very clear. The airplane was my favorite. The traditional fish lunch with rice and beans was delicious. I plan to dive with Pirate Island Divers when I return to Honduras.

Tony was awesome!! We had to reschedule our trip twice, and he was so helpful with everything! He made all the arrangements for us, and we didn't worry about anything!!! Cayos was such a wonderful experience because of him!!!!

The Cayos Cochinos are otherworldly and Tony took us to some beautiful spots to dive. The food was the best I've had in 6 months of living in Honduras and our lodging was a breezy loft with a local family on a private island! The only things I would improve: timeliness (we left later than planned each morning due to... More

I did the three day trip with Tony to Cayos Cochinos first week of Mar 16. Tony picked me up at the ferry from Utila and we hung out for the next couple of days in and around La Ceiba which was a bonus for me. Got to meet some great friends of Tony and got a guided tour around... More

We did 8 dives in different parts of the Cayos, all of them spectacular, some with great swim throughs as well and the diving was relaxing and fun - it was only the three of us and the boat captain. The equipment was in great shape and Tony an experienced guide which made this trip a great experience for us.... More

For those who don't want to read any further; I don't recommend booking with this company at all! The islands are beautiful but the service is bad and the accommodations are worse (even if you like 'minimal'). Spend more money and go for one of the other options. We booked a 4 days / 3 nights package with 10 dives... More
