About Us

Do you want to Scuba Dive or learn how to scuba dive in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean? You are at the right place. UWIL has been in existence for the past 12 years.

At UWIL, we train swimmers and  divers and have made a name for ourselves as the number one training facility in Trinidad. We are now situated in a beautiful friendly marina with all facilities nearby including swimming pool, sea, dive shop,equipment sales and service,  air-conditioned classrooms, changing rooms, equipment for commercial diving, scuba diving and rental on site. We offer PDIC, PADI, and SSI  international scuba diving certifications, we provide a standard of training that is comparable and beyond  any other training facility in the world.

UWIL was set up to facilitate the needs of the growing commercial diving industry in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean. We recognised that a large number of the companies were utilising persons with scuba diving certifications to perform commercial diving jobs for private and state agencies. This is not a safe practice as these scuba divers are not trained with the proper skills and knowledge expected and required of commercial divers.  At UWIL, we have the personnel and equipment to adequately train commercial divers to work in both the local and international commercial diving industry.
