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

Great staff and very nice boat with plenty of room. Cabin up front and deck on top. Dive shop is loaded with goods, equipment, and souvenirs. Plenty of big wrecks and the amount of fish there was amazing. Beautiful sand tiger sharks posing for pics. Good place to dive and take the family.

The post of user mldemmons already puts it in a nutshell. We have never been to a dive center which offers so less service and does not really care about their guests. Although we are experienced scuba divers which do not need a lot of support, we still felt left alone. Paying in advance seems to be the most important... More

First of all, the people here are very friendly. Unfortunately, that's it. Four of us decided to spend July 3 with Olympus. We paid $160 each for two dives, including air tanks. We also asked for a guide a week or so in advance, but we called the day before to be told a guide wasn't available - conveniently inside... More
