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

I had 2 great dives, one on the U-352 and the other on the Aeolus. The 352 dive was very clear. vis about 80 to 90 feet. The Aeolus was the... More

Diving offshore in the Atlantic is not like diving in the Florida Keys or Caribbean. I would recommend having a few dives under your belt before attempting it. That said, Olympus divers is a first class organization. People travel up and down the east coast to dive the wrecks off the outer banks of North Carolina. I've heard people complain... More

It was an experience ill never forget, my pictures dont even do it justice. The staff, mates, captain were all first class professionals. I felt well looked after and safe.... More

The staff at Olympus were really outstanding. Everyone was friendly, patient, and had a great sense of humor. While diving, the everyone was competent and professional. Even though the weather was not very cooperative on our trip, they did their best and managed to get us out for a couple of really nice dives. On our boat we had a... More
