Fantastic experience! My wife and I both did our Open Water Diver certification here. We had Alton for our first 2 days and Cara for our last day. To give you an idea, I have a lot of fear around water (still not sure how my wife convinced me to do this) and typically panic for the first 10-20 minutes just snorkeling before I can calm my body. The first day was challenging with overcoming fears of water, claustrophobia etc. but Alton was patient and kind (he even played tic-Tac-toe underwater with me to distract me) and by the end of the day I was shocked how much calmer I felt under water in just one day. Both instructors were friendly, professional, encouraging, and we both felt we could trust them 100%. The gear is well maintained and they take safety very seriously. They also were just fun to dive with and did a great job pointing out cool stuff to us that we definitely would have missed on our own. Everyone we interacted with at the shop was kind, friendly and made us feel right at home. I would recommend Tank’d without hesitation, especially if you are feeling nervous and want a more personalized experience.

Diving Utila in general was also great. Cool fish, saw two eagle rays, starfish, a teeny tiny baby squid (so cute!), etc. Healthy coral. And the water was 84F so we could dive without wetsuits!

Well run Dive Shop with new equipment and friendly staff. They keep the groups small and are accommodating. The price is very reasonable as well, I would dive with them again.

Dove in early to mid December. Saw some eels, stingray, barracuda, squid, octopus, grouper, a massive channel crab, very healthy reef with lots of schooling fish. I was actually surprised by how clean the water was, virtually zero garbage seen while diving off Utila.

We had a number of great dives at Tank'd. Travelling as a group of 5, with two children aged 8 and 10, we needed to make sure the kids were entertained on snorkelling locations while two of the adults were diving. Tank'd managed to find quite a few of these locations and be flexible around our travel schedule! We also joined for one night dive which was really nice.

Most of the dives we did with Alton - he was outstanding, picked good locations, spotted a lot of little critters I would have just swam past, and took care of a nervous refresher diver very well. Plus the break we had between the dives with him at his home island was the best dive break ever! Jean joined us on a few occasions also very calm and nice diver.

After the dive you can wash off your gear at Tank'd. As we stayed at Odessey we also let our gear hang there to dry out (the Tank'd staff was kind enough to put our gear inside one night that we forgotten to take it in on time).

I live on Utila so I’m familiar with all the dive shops on the island and have dove with many of them. I love Tan’k for so many reasons! They have a great location and shop. Their boats are on the smaller which is great because it means they are FAST and also they take out smaller groups. I’ve never had to dive in a boat with students, but that is not always the case with other shops. they definitely take you to the best dive sites. Their staff is amazing and doesn’t seem to turn over much. They are super accommodating and professional.

I had an amazing experience getting my Advanced Adventurer and deep dive specialty at Tank’d! Very professional across the board. In particular, my instructor Katie, brought amazing enthusiasm, knowledge, and kept safety priority 1 at all times. I could not be more happy. Thank you, Katie and Tank’d for a 1st class experience. Looking forward to next time!

We had a great experience diving with Tank’d Pro Drivers. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. All dives were small groups which made it perfect for Jean to point out all the marine life. The reefs were beautiful. Visibility was limited when we were there but they had 21 days of rain just before our arrival. Will definitely be visiting again!

The whole crew has been great. It’s a very safe and professional outfit. Katie, one of Tank’d Pro Dive Center’s instructors, also helped instruct the initial scuba course that I took in Toronto. I met up with Katie down here at Tank’d to finish my open water certification knowing that she had a very calming approach with her instruction. Her instruction made me feel really comfortable in the open water as well. I finished my open water certification and am excited to come back, hopefully very soon. I didn’t stay in their rooms (there wasn’t any availability) but the building is modern and clean. The facility is in town close to everything and within walking distance of the ferry. I am not familiar with Scuba prices but the costs seem almost too fair given the amount of attention from the staff. My impression is that they take a limited number of people out so that they can give you close attention. They also offer many advanced courses. Food at their restaurant Odyssey was also great. I will be back.

Best dive centre in Utila! And best instructor ever - Mariam. She really took her time with me doing my advanced course, she was patient and full of knowledge, and I really admire her passion for the ocean and conserving the reef. I feel like because of her I learnt more than just my advanced course - I learnt to respect the ocean and it’s animals more, which is now knowledge I am taking with me on all my dives and sharing with others. All dive schools should be teaching this sort of information but sadly I don’t think that’s the case on Utila with some of the other bigger ‘factory’ schools.
The school are very accommodating, the boats have very low numbers - when they do have a bigger group on the boat it’s their regulars, who come back all the time because they love Tank’d so much. They’re a great bunch and make you feel very welcome as a student. The school are great at accommodating which dive site you might want to visit (weather permitted and depending on boat size!).
Also the gear is some of the newest and most well maintained that I saw in Central America.
Instructor Cara is also a very patient and excellent teacher, captain Jorge is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the seas and currents out there, and the management team of Greg and Janean are awesome. Tank’d feels like a family.
The restaurant upstairs is also worth a visit, yummy fajitas!
See you for my advanced!!

Probably the best Dive Center all around in Utila. Clean spotless organized. Resort on site, fast clean new boats that don't smoke black sut on you.
Great Instructors and DMs from SSI that is focused in small groups to be able to give more attention to each student instead of training a bunch of ppl at once. It makes a difference specially under water. They blend their own Nitrox on site, so you always have a choice.
I had the pleasure to train my Night and Deep certification with Deway, Miriam and Max. Awesome teachers made it interesting and fun while feeling safe at all times knowing what to expect at all times.
Thank you!!!

We absolutely loved Utila and Tank'd Pro Dive Shop! We had the pleasure of spending two weeks on Utila with the goal of becoming SCUBA certified. We are retired couple with zero experience diving. Our AMAZONING Dive Master Alton ensure our safety while ensuing our confidence to achieve our goal. Diving on Utila was out of this world. The coral and visibility is outstanding. We want to make a special shout out to Captain George, Dive Masters Katie and Mariam and the entire team at Tank'd who treated us like family. Again Dive Master Alton was spectacular, even taking tons of pictures to document our progress into the new world of diving. We highly recommend Scuba diving. Take from us it is never to late. If you want a caring, nurturing and personal instruction Tank'd is the place to go.

Had a great experience with Tankd. Smaller boats so no crowds at all - made for a great diving experience. Katie managed our refresher dive and day time dives and she went out of her way to make everything as low stress as possible. Kara took me on a night dive and it was absolutely stunning. Rental gear was all in good shape and the process was super easy. Dashmin, at the odyssey office, even went out of her way to help us coordinate child care for our 4yo so we could dive together. I would absolutely dive with this group again.

This dive op was simply awesome. Very nice fast boat, all the dive gear is almost brand new, the facilities are really nice, the staff was just the best. If you are looking for that special dive shop, this is it! It is located in The Odyssey Resort.

Tank'd Pro Dive Shop was one of the best dive shops I've been too. We loved the staff, from the owners Greg and Jainean, to the excellent and professional staff, Dewey, Miriam and Jesus. They were all wonderful to us and by the end of our visit I felt like they were family. We did about 20 dives with this shop and are looking forward to coming back and doing more certifications in the future. Thank you guys - for everything!

This facility is wonderful! They care about the quality of your dives. The boat, Miss Wally, is super comfy & is as awesome as her crew.....2 or 3 steps from your seat, & an easy backroll, YOUR IN! A big shout out to Captain Michael for all his help with my mobility barriers. My husband, age 71, and myself age 60 dove with Tank'd during our recent 21 day stay (at Odyssey resort). We were beyond pleased with their customer service and seriously made some 'forever' friends!! PLEASE, don't think twice. Book with them now, you will not be disappointed.

Tankd pro dive, apart from being a beautiful facility, has one the most welcoming and warm professional staff i have encountered. Its been a joy and an incredible adventure sharing dives with them and doing my Assistant Instructor course AND SSI Instructor course with them! I can’t thank them enough and I recommend them fully!

My girlfriend and I just got back from two weeks on Utila. We loved Tanked! Everyone there was kind, knowledgeable, and professional. Dewey was a great instructor for my Stress and Rescue class. Greg, Ja'nean, Michael, Jesus, and Miriam made us feel welcome. They have a very well run operation. We dove with other centers on the island, but Tanked stood out as the best.

We recently did our SSI Open Water Certification and our Advanced Open Water Certification (4 specialties & 24 dives) with Tank’d Pro Dive Center and have ZERO regrets!! We looked at all of the different dive shops but chose Tank'd because they focus on the individual and are flexible regarding your schedule and needs. They work with all ages and aren't focused on the party scene! They appeared very professional and stressed excellence in training. They had smaller class sizes and seemed passionate about what they do. Let me tell you....they did not disappoint!! The staff and facilities are amazing! They have taken us from complete newbies to ADDICTED DIVERS in just 3 weeks!!!

Tank'd has so many specialties to choose from for your Advanced Open Water Course and they customize your training based on your interests and goals even down to the dive sites - they dive all around the island, and even have DPV/Scooters! We couldn't be happier that we chose Tank'd - believe me, you won't regret it!

Tank’d is a very professional dive operation in the beautiful island of Utila. The owners are helpful and knowledgeable and even loaned me their personal dive fins upon hearing I had a special need. Their dive master Dewey was great and made sure to point out the interesting marine life on our 2 tank dive with them. I would highly recommend this business for your dive trip to Utila and will use them
again when we go! They have a great restaurant (of the same name) above their dive shop. The chicken parmigiana was delicious and their prices were reasonable.

I love diving with Tank’d!! Their super fast, twin-engine boat, Miss Wally, makes getting to dive sites a breeze. Captain Charles is the the most helpful and knowledgeable captain on the island, always taking us to the best dive spots. An added plus is the small group size. The boat carries a maximum of 10 divers, including staff, so I never feel like I am part of a cattle call. Tank’d offers a professional, first class, premier diving experience and is a fabulous new and much needed addition to Utila’s dive scene.

This is one of the best dive operations we have been diving with. Greg and his team are incredibly accommodating to all levels of guests. We did both recreational and technical dives and every dive was always safe, well communicated, and fun. I highly recommend Tank'd for any diver visiting Utila. The boats are both comfortable and fast. Shout out to the dive masters / instructors Dewey, Kara, Mariam, Jean, and Greg. See you next time.
