I came from Florida to North Carolina for a wedding and stayed an extra week specifically to dive the WWII U352 wreck. Olympus Dive Center is one first class organization. All the store staff, Dottie, Chris, Alex, were friendly and knowledgeable, they made you feel right at home. I dove midweek to 2 other wrecks then took the PADI U352 certification class with DM Mike Muller. The Friday afternoon classroom portion included an overview of U Boats in general then specific information about the U352 and it's sinking in 1942. Mike was great, he answered all my questions and then showed and explained all the artifacts present at the Dive Center. The Saturday U352 dive was awe inspiring! Mike was my personal guide, had all the features to investigate on his dive slate, and I was able to really appreciate this war memorial. Even a sand tiger shark showed up to add to the thrill. Their dive boat is 65ft so even with 26 divers on it there is plenty of room. Captain Robert was easy going, professional and fun to talk to. The crew gave thorough briefings and set up a line on each wreck to keep us all on target. I'd like to give DM Mike Muller a special thanks for making this adventure so enjoyable. If you go, take his class!

This was our first time in Olympus and we really enjoyed it. The Captain Bobby, awesome, I didn't get sick not even a little bit during the rides, DM Travis very knowledgeable, I really like his safety briefings and DM Robert, very helpful always around checking on everyone. I really like their setup, very well organize, clear expectations and very safety oriented. We went during Labor day weekend and even tho it was a long crazy weekend for a lot of people, they were on point all the time. Thank you everyone, you have an awesome dive team.

Never get tired diving the graveyard of the Atlantic with Olympus. The staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable. I've dove with Olympus about a dozen times and every time I go it seems I make friends from around the country and come away seeing something on a wreck I hadn't seen before.

Went in looking for some fins trying to support local instead of just ordering online even though I knew exactly what I wanted. Staff was so unfriendly they lost out on what would have been a 200 dollar sell, and probably trip sales with their dive boat as well. Would not recommend anyone going any here and trying to deal with the sales ladies attitude.

We had a large group and took the every seat on the boat for 2 days of diving. Seas were rough on one day and the crew came around and offered sea sickness glasses, candied ginger, and snacks to help the sick people. We did some inshore diving on the rough day and the 2nd day had beautifully flat seas so we were able to get out to the U352. Visibility was not perfect, but no one can control that. The crew did a great job with the dive briefings and were very helpful getting back on the boat.
