Dove two days with Octopus last week. Captain James and DM Marjorie took us out on Kraken and Captain Dave and DM Lindsey took us out on Octopussy. Four quality dive sites and a great variety of sealife. We finally heard dolphins! Next time I know we will see them. Quality organization from Chris and Sally through the whole crew!

Loved diving with Octopus! I'm a relatively inexperienced diver, but fault very comfortable with Marjorie and Dave leading our trip. Booking online was super easy. Was able to do a wreck dive which was a lot of fun and something I was hoping to do on this trip. Only wish I had more time to go on another dive excursion.... More

Had our very first dive as a couple. I was able to set up reservations on line with ease from the states. Upon our arrival we met Dave at the shop who promptly finished our registration. Once registered we were directed down the road to a gated secure parking for our dive. This is where we met our dive masters:... More

We took 2 kids, ages 11 and 14, on their first open water dive and they both had a great experience thanks to Dave and Mike. After the dive, we walked to the restaurant that Dave recommended and had an awesome meal. I highly recommend Octopus Diving for a great experience.

Went for a 2 tank dive with a very nice family from Minnesota. Chris, the owner, was our captain. Marjorie was our dive master and she was awesome! She pointed several critters to us that we would have missed without her. And it was fun to hear her briefing with ze french accent, which reminded me of Inspector Clouseau in... More

I am most impressed with the level of personalized service. They keep the number of divers small, which enhances the experience and the feeling of safety. James and Sarah were our divemasters the day I went, and I can only praise both of them for their obvious expertise and their caring and personable manner (which I don't always see when... More

From the moment we walked into the shop, everyone that we spoke to was incredibly pleasant, but our Captain, James, and Dive Instructor, Scuba Steve, were loaded with personality (in the best possible way). These two had great chemistry and worked well as a team. The dive itself, was fun, despite needing to constantly chase after the two other Discovery... More

If you love to dive or want to try it out, I highly recommend booking with Octopus Diving. The guides are very kind and knowledgeable. It is located in this great little town with amazing food in little dive cafes.

We came to Octopus diving to complete our scuba certifications (March 13 and 14). The Octopus diving folks are real pros. Sally was so helpful on the phone getting us organized. The facilities are so welcoming, clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and professional. The other divers there that day were all long time repeat customers. We were paired... More
