About Us

Underwater Vision is a spectacularly located, award-winning scuba diving center and resort offering accommodation to fit every budget and world-class PADI diving instruction as well as Package Deals available for all levels of experience.

We are a family owned and operated dive resort located on the beautiful island of Utila, Bay Islands. Our family and staff have taken divers ranging from entry level to dive professional underwater for over 30 years. Since 1991 we've expanded our dive operation into the beautiful, spacious, and friendly resort that it is today.

Underwater Vision is owned and operated by the Coopers, a local family who have been in the business for forty years! Their ancestors were among the first European settlers to the island of Utila. They have also hired an array of multi lingual experienced PADI Instructors to ensure that all diving students receive great instruction. You are sure to be treated like a part of the family once you set your bag down at Underwater Vision, regardless of the duration of your stay!

The unique atmosphere and magnificent location of Underwater Vision PADI Career Development Center will have you wishing for a longer stay and making plans for your return!
