Coral View Dive Center logo

Coral View Dive Center is a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center and was established in 2005. We encourage small diving groups whether you are learning or fun diving and feel that this sets us apart from many of the other Dive Centres on the island. We have fun, but our team of experienced PADI Instructors on level of professionalism that ensures your first glimpse of the underwater world in Utila is both safe and enjoyable.

We have a unique location which will find you a 10-15 minute, ocean front, stroll away from the tourist crowds and noise of Utila-town. When not exploring the sights of the undersea world we encourage you to relax on our ocean front sundeck or snorkel the Caribbean Reef right at our doorstep.

Coral View Beach Resort sports 18 rooms and a penthouse apartment. All rooms have en-suite private bathrooms with hot water, air conditioning and fans to keep you comfortable. Guests of our resort will also be provided with a hot breakfast from our onsite restaurant each morning of their stay. Many of our rooms have ocean views. The penthouse boasts both ocean and lagoon views from a large veranda which is perfect for watching romantic sunrises and sunsets.

Coral View Dive Centre currently runs conservation and diving projects for a 9 week period every year in conjunction with Operation Wallacea. this time we certify hundreds of students and have many participants in reef ecology courses as well as students carrying out their dissertation and PhD research. This responsibility alone proves that Coral View Dive Centre is a very professional and equipped diving facility dedicated to the preservation and understanding of the Mesoamerican Reef We also offer Dive Master Internships and Instructor Development Courses during this time so please feel free to contact us if you are interested in taking your SCUBA career to a professional level.

Apart from courses, we offer resort style fun diving to some of the best sites on the island as well as other activities such as Whale Shark Safari’s, Water Cay Trips, and much, much more.
