Don’t just get a certification – become a real Rescue Diver! 

The Rescue Diver course will introduce you to more extensive safe diving practices, teach you how to better prevent problems, and most importantly, train you to be able to identify solutions to any dive incident. Here at UDC, we run the Rescue course over 4 days, making it much more substantive than versions offered by other dive centres. This is because we believe this is such important training and, as always, we provide the highest value of service to our customers. If you do not have a current First Aid qualification (which includes CPR) then you will also need to complete the Emergency First Response (EFR) section of the Rescue course which takes half a day.

“I had the good fortune to be able to be trained up at UDC,starting with my rescue course and then proceeding through Dive Masters and my IDC.The attention to detail and the exacting standards on all the courses whether recreational or technical is outstanding and is second to none.I highly reccomend Utila Dive Center as a starting point if you are thinking about turning your passion for diving into something more.”
