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.

The owner / captain goes out of his way to make sure your dive is safe and you are on the best dive site. What other reviewers (the negative ones) do not seen to remember is that the outer banks are the grave yard of the Atlantic for a reason. Bad weather and rough seas are common and that why... More

Olympus Dive Center runs a very tight ship and that's what you want when you go diving. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and very friendly. On board the Olympus we enjoyed excellent service from mates Bub and Gavin and had two awesome dives in two trips. We will be back for more.

So, my wife and I booked a vacation with a resort in the Caribbean that offers free daily scuba diving (for certified divers) for the length of our stay (minus the day the prior to departure). With that being said, the wife and I were not certified and didn't want to spend our entire vacation taking the resort course. Instead,... More

I chose to dive with Olympus based on their TripAdvisor reviews and the sense of professionalism I got from their website, and I was not disappointed. Everyone from the crew to the shop staff demonstrated attention to safety and important details. This trip was the occasion of my 100th dive, but I got the impression I was the least experienced...
