Trip Report Scuba Diving Training on Guanaja Island, Guanaja Island Club

Jump to last reply

After researching almost all of the dive shops on Guanaja, I selected The Guanaja Island Club as my top choice based on great reviews, PADI and PDIC; I sent an email to reserve a space at the resort and received an email back immediately. I continued to coordinate my arrival time with Brian, the Diving course director at the resort. I was impressed when Carolina, the owner met me at the airport when I arrived on the island! We proceeded to travel back to the resort by boat, Talk about service!

The Guanaja Island Club offers a wonderful service at affordable prices, offering a family-like and caring touch in all exchanges. My Instructor Brian was professional and fun and I learned both PDIC courses that I took (Open Water and Advanced) quickly and efficiently. By the end of the 2nd day I was confidently setting up my dive equipment, doing buddy checks, and excitedly and confident.

Brian and Carolina welcome those staying at the Resort and diving into their family and their children are a delight.

After a dive it was not uncommon to come back to a dock with all of the dive staff and visiting divers sitting together on the dock, which they turned into a bar and grab a beer with instructors and students alike. A wonderful experience!

If you want more than the typical and want to get to know Guanaja and the people who live there a little better, I highly recommend diving and staying at the Guanaja Island Club. You can always head to the all night parties at the Island House a short walk down from the Guanaja Island Club and you can take the boat bar cruise, they call it the” Honky Tonk Cruise”, a tour which they start around 9 or 10 at night and cruise to different watering holes around the island. Wow! this is something I have never experienced and it was a highlight of the week’s activities.
