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:)

Prior to visiting skiathos I did some research into diving in the area. Octopus came highly recommended. Now I know why. Met Thoe one evening on his boat in the new port, he was very friendly and highly professional. I booked the 5 dive package for €195 which I thought was very reasonable. The dives themselves varied between 15 and... More

My kids' (18 and 20) first open water dive. Got in contact with Theo who is very professional and serious about diving (as all instructors shall be, but not all are...). My kids are used to snorkeling and have always been more under water than above, when playing in a pool our at a beach. Theo went through all the... More

I've never scuba dived before but have always wanted to but never got around to it. After asking friends on the island for advice, Octopus Diving always came out top. The instructor is very experienced and fills you with confidence. I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life. Have every intention of repeating the... More

I had never had the opportunity to try snorkeling so wanted to give it a go. I emailed in advance and was lucky they were going out with Scuba so happy to have us along. We went out to an island off the coast. We were fitted with equipment and i was taken through the basics. They ensured I was... More

I had 2 try dives whilst on holiday, the first with my step dad and a second with a friend. I had the most amazing experience, the whole time Theo ensured everyones safety whilst opening up a whole new world. This has given me the confidence and motivation to take up diving and to get my certificate's for future holidays.

I already posted a review about Octopus Diving Center in Skiathos, but it didn't make it to the audience. I don't know why, but I have a wild guess: "They" know that Theo is my friend. Who are "they"? I don't know and I don't care. But this second review will be even more laudative than the unpublished first one.... More

Did two dives on 6th and 8th September with Theo from Octopus Diving in Skiathos just recently and had a great time on both. I will echo some of the the other comments in that all the dive preparation and briefings were clear and detailed. These are done aboard a small dive boat both in the harbour and again out... More
