Loved the whole experience. I came here for my birthday to dive with the sand sharks. I booked the dorm as diving is not a cheap activity for $30/night. Careful though, you have to bring your own sheets or sleeping bag. I actually forgot about that detail as they don't remind you and I had booked it over a month... More

The staff members at Olympus Dive Center are service-focused and responsive to inquiries. I love that they also offer a great and affordable dive lodge for approx. $30/night plus tax. It's comfortable and can lend divers a chance to exchange tips and information from their aquatic adventures. The Dive Shop offers a wide range of equipment and dive suit sizes... More

Loved going out to dive with this crew and had some pretty good dives. It's hit or miss if they are going out based on weather - they are very conservative. The accommodations for a large dive boat are very nice. I really appreciated diving with a safe crew.

Amazing team of instructors, dive masters and boat crew. Although the weather didn't cooperate much the learning and overall experience was super professional and friendly. We can't wait to go back.

The shop and people that work there are nothing less than amazing. They know what they are doing and don't compromise our safety in anyway. I did 2 days of diving and on our way out the first morning we received a detailed safety briefing. I never felt uncomfortable one second. Weather pending can change their operations daily and the...

I was in NC for 5 days with 4 days of diving booked this Aug. I have been an Olympus customer for several years and as always their staff, facilities, and service is second to none. The off-shore diving is not for beginner divers, but Olympus offers in-shore charters that are accessible to any diver. The staff at Olympus go... More

I highly recommend this dive operation. They are professional and top notch. Two boats are available for your dive excursions into the Atlantic Ocean. Well stocked dive shop and plenty of rental equipment is available.

The lodge is like a hostel for scuba divers! All the rooms are named after dive spots and there are 2-4 bunk beds in each room. The head has 3 showers and a couple of toilets. They have a large common room with a fridge, microwave and toaster but faucet except in the head. The dive crew are very friendly... More

This was my ninth year diving with Olympus. Every year they exceed my expectations and make sure our dives are epic. I booked six days of offshore diving and due to weather only got out four days. The four days were nothing short of amazing. The Olympus is a spacious boat made for diving. The captain and crew made sure... More
