I did this and will do it again and again and again with Octopus, very good dive experience. I had fun scuba diving, humans are the only creatures with the ability to dive deep in the sea, fly high in the sky, send instant messages around the globe, reflect on the past, assess the present and imagine the future.

Friendly staff...efficiently run...interesting dives...boat is all the smaller side with not a lot of leg room for us longer legged folks especially when fully suited up...Octopus Divers are a good choice and far ahead of other options when it comes to customer service.

We had more than 20 dives at Octopus in April 2015 with my two sons and we cannot praise them enough. It is very professionally run, has very good equipment, friendly staff and super dive sites. All the diving always feels extremely safe and there are also ideal sites for smaller children. My 10-year old did his Junior OWD with... More

Everything went smoothly on both of our diving days with Octopus -- this is a professional operation. From pickup to briefing to equipment, boat staff, etc, all was just as expected. We were fortunate to have Vicky as our dive instructor and she pointed out all the sealife on our list to see. Will definitely aim to dive with this... More

Very friendly staff, the divers feel like a big family. Good equipments and boats. You usually eat together with the other divers which is very good to make new friends. I would recommend.

Octopus staff was very professional on dealing with my dives, including a night dive. Good service started 3 weeks before the trip, when they gave me info trough e-mail about the diving sites. It continued on an excellent management of large groups, dividing it in 4 divers per Dive Master. And ended with an easy payment process with an organized... More

This was my first diving experience. It was so much fun that I went back two more times and enjoyed myself thoroughly each time. Octopus will pick you up from your lodging and return you there after the dive. That service is included in the dive fee. After I arrived at the dive center, Florent explained the equipment and how... More

After making enquiries at several other dive operations in the Seychelles, this one immediately stood out as extremely professional. They actually showed an interest and also were very helpful. Francine and her team were always very friendly, the equipment was good and the dive trips fantastic. Great welcome every time, great staff and a very well-run operation. Prices were competitive...

Location: The dive center is located right at the cote d'or beach (Anse Volbert) next to the Berjaya beach restaurant. Since we were staying in the Le Duc hotel it was just a 200 meter walk for us. Equipment: The dive center offers state of the art rental equipment. However, we brought our own stuff. Both air and Nitrox32 is... More
