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.

From the moment we stepped into the shop, we were well taken care of. Everything from signing in and all the way through the trip until we were safely back at the dock, I felt I was in good hands and safe. This was my first time diving off the coast of North Carolina and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The... More

This was a second attempt to go diving off of Moorhead City, NC with this dive operator. Our first attempt two years ago was thwarted by a hurricane. The desk staff were very helpful in getting us signed in and explaining how their operation works. Then we were assisted at the Nitrox station in analyzing our 30% gas for the... More

North Carolina is a fantastic dive destination with lots of "large animal" encounters - namely Sand Tiger Sharks. Saw several on most of our dives. Diving with Olympus Dive Centre was perfect: they are extremely professional and safety conscious, trying to ensure that all divers follow safety protocol. Their line system makes it easy to ascend / descent and provides... More

I'm not sure what I was expecting but Olympus blew my mind. The staff were friendly and approachable, always giving helpful tips. And we saw SO many sharks. We ended up adding an extra day to our dive week to continue diving with them. Great experience, they are the best and really know what they're doing.
