This was my fourth visit to Octopus Diving Centre in Skiathos and every time the experience could not have been better. Theo, the owner, is extremely professional. Safety is always his number one priority and he will never ask a diver to exceed what they are capable or comfortable with, be they a novice or more experienced diver. The maximum... More

Our first dive, the best experience of our lifes until now, made possible by the most patient and friendly instructor. If you are in Skiathos just go talk to Theo and you will see he is the best choice.

Theo is knowledgeable and puts safety first. He made me feel like i was in good hands for my first diving experience. He also took some awesome GoPro photos of the dive which was such a great memento!

Diving with Theo was like having my private diving instructor! He was giving so much personal attention and made the preparation and dive easy and fun for us! He even took and emailed us some amazing photos of us after our dive!! He has good equipment and a big variety of wet suits to choose from. I just come back... More

This was our first dive experience and I'm sure we couldn't have chosen better. Theo is a great instructor, and makes you feel so comfortable and confident about everything. The dive itself was fantastic and had a great time. Will definitely be diving again thanks to such a great experience here. Couldn't recommend this enough, it will be the thing... More

Have dived with Octopus for a number of years. This year opted for the 5 dive package and wasn't disappointed. Theo is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable, I liked the fact that he would only dive if the conditions were right to make your dive as enjoyable as possible and kept in touch throughout my holiday to advise on best...

We went out diving with Octupus Diving Center in the end of August 2014. My girlfriend and I have dived in many locations around the world, and we have been out with many instructors. However, we will always remember this dive due to extraordinary kindness and professionalism from Theo, who is running Octupus Diving Center. We can only give our... More

We have just got back from two weeks in Skiathos. We went scuba diving with Theo, it was brilliant. Theo is very calm and professional, taking time to get to know you before you go scuba diving. My son is 12 and Theo spent time making sure he felt O.K. about the dive. There were 5 of us diving on... More

Our son did his PADI openwater diving qualification with Theo 2 years ago in 2012 - he was 12 years old at the time. He couldn't wait to go back and as a result we have returned to Skiathos last year and again this year. Our daughter now 11 has also joined in the fun - she isn't old enough... More

Tried 2 other scuba centers in Skiathos and settled to this one because the guy was really passionate about sea-life and not only . He drove us (with his boat) to reeealy cool dive places and all in all i've been in love with diving ever since.Definitely the place to go if you are lucky:)
