Great dive sites, Excellent staff who is very safety conscious, and great facilities and boat. I've dove all over the Caribbean and Olympus most certainly ranks at the top of my list. All of the staff was very helpful, friendly and professional. I will most definitely be back to dive with this group!

Great Dive vacation. The staff, the operation, the sites all top notch. I was amazed by the water temp. Viz was a little less than expected but a storm front came through and we were blown out for two days. That being said, the staff did all they could to try and make up those dives by running a Friday... More

A few points for the diver - 1] NO refund if you CANCEL your dive less than 30 days before said dive date. 2] They do not know their boats destinations, wherein most dive shops have a set of multiple plans for dives according to the weather. We dove a piece of metal scrap @ 60 feet [a wreck] twice... More

The dive was just okay. The wreck was in good shape, lots of fish and barracuda and saw the big sea turtle. I did not think the guide was professional and the guide didn't make me feel assured. When the guide was touching the turtle, some red flags popped up in my head. The boat crew was great and helpful.... More

Great job, kudos to the captain and crew of the Midnight Express. These folks run a great operation, I had a great 2 dives. The boat was in excellent order, and the whole experience was streamlined, and user friendly. I'll definitely be back and highly recommend them to anyone who wants a good safe and fun dive.

This dive shop is organized, professional, and -- most importantly -- fun! The Graveyard of the Atlantic is at their doorstep, and this is an excellent dive shop to choose as your guide. They offer full- and half-day dives for much of the year (only stopping when it's too cold) to a variety of wreck sites. Everyone on staff, from... More

Dove 5 trips, 9 dives, 1st day on Midnight Express, 2nd day on the Olympus boat. Staff were excellent & personable; dive briefings quite good. A mate goes in to anchor to the wreck, lay a line you can follow if you wish, then returns to report on conditions that are reported in the dive briefing. Figure on 1 1/2... More

If you're going to dive the "Graveyard of the Atlantic" you need to go out with Olympus. Their reputation is known throughout the dive community for good reason. Their boats are extremely well equipped and in excellent condition, their captains and crew are first rate in all regards, and their shop and service is excellent. No matter if you're a... More

Olympus is a top notch dive operation out of Morehead City N. Carolina . The office staff , dive masters and captain are all very helpful and knowledgeable. While the trip out to the dive sites can be a bit rough it is well worth the effort . the water is warmish, the fish life is abundant and the wrecks... More

Diving with Olympus Dive Center for a week at end of July. Had 10 wonderful dives that week. Saw lots of marine life on the wrecks including dozens od sand tiger sharks on Caribsea wreck. We were on Midnight Express and could hardly have asked for better care from the crew. Olympus is great.
