My first dive trip with Olympus was in 2009. Since then, I have visited Morehead City at least once a year and always book with Olympus. The boat is large and spacious even when loaded to capacity. The staff is professional and knowledgeable. The entire operation is smooth and lacking drama. The dive lodge accommodations are basic but cheap! The... More

Dove with Clint, Bobby, and Gavin last week on the Olympus. We had rain, rain, and a hurricane all week long....nothing they could do about it, but we went diving anyways. The guys were always upbeat, and eager to make us feel at home. Did 6 dives with them over the course of the week, and each time they were... More

Great experience!! My son, daughter and I just started diving this year and we are hooked. This was our first wreck dive and we felt so comfortable with Olympus. They explained everything that was going to happen and what to do. I would highly recommend that if you are in the Morehead City area and want to dive, give Olympus... More

I took my daughter and I down to Olympus to get our Open Water Dive Certification. Words cannot express how impressed I was with the service and professionalism from their staff. Jake was our instructor and he was patient, encouraging and supportive with us, and especially with me during the training. I was taking up scuba diving to overcome my... More

This was my fourth diving experience with Olympus and second certification course. As always, the staff at Olympus were friendly, professional and concerned about each divers experience. I especially appreciated Christy, Mark, Nick and Isabel for assisting as the victims for the numerous rescue scenarios that Sarah put me through. Olympus Dive Center is the premier spot to dive the... More

I'm writing this review as a newer diver with little experience. I had only previously dived in Jamaica and felt a little trepidation diving in this new environment. Since I didn't have 20 dives yet I couldn't take the full day charter to dapper dives (100 feet). I didn't even have 10 yet so I needed a guide to do... More

First time with Olympus. When signing up, it was determined that my son and I would require a guide due to less than 20 total dives, despite certs. It was a great experience!! Tim, our guide, was wonderful. He took us at a very nice pace. Being with a guide helps you see what are the highlights!! Lots of sharks!!... More

I had an excellent experience with Olympus. Friendly, very knowledgable staff. Well stocked shop. Fair prices. Registering for my dives was a piece of cake. The staff explained all I needed to know. Dive briefings on-board were thorough. Boat procedures were explained very well. Boat was comfortable and well-equipped.
