The only 100% AWARE dive centre on Utila

For every course you take with us, Bay Islands College of Diving donates $10 US to Project Aware. That's why only with us you will receive the Project AWARE Manta Ray certification cards instead of the standard PADI cards. This will show others your commitment to our ocean planet. Thanks to Project AWARE in 2013 four endangered marine species were added to the CITES list.
