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:)

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
