We had an excellent experience diving at octopus! My daughters did the open water certification and absolutely loved it. Bryce was a very thorough instructor and everyone there was incredibly friendly and helpful. The discover dive was perfect for me, best thing I've done on the island. Highly recommend!
My first Google review with pictures for the BEST dive shop!!! (In Roatan and in the world!) I can’t recommend this place more! My friend and I both had bad diving experiences before, injured my knee and his ear. However, these days here completely changed our idea of diving! We loved it! Everything is perfect. Big shout out to Nuria, Bryce, Martin and Captain Quinn!! Love you all and wish I’ll come back soon!
My family and I went to Roatan with the intention to dive since it is well known for its large and beautiful reef. We asked around all the shops in west end. We luckily found octopus dive school which was closer to our Airbnb in Sandy Bay, but more hidden. When we walked into the shop we felt instantly welcomed by Nuria and the others that were there. The shop was really well set up/organized and it had a homey feeling. We ended up getting our open water certification with them and our instructor Virna was super informative and patient with us. My little brother was not old enough to get the certification but they were super nice to him, let him learn with us, and let him snorkel while we dove. He did a bubble maker dive with them which made him nervous at first, but Virna was really flexible and thoroughly talked him through it until he was confident and ready. He loved it! They offer really reasonable prices, are highly flexible, and we left with only positive things to say about them.
We were open water certified a week before our dive in Roatan. To say I was nervous is an understatement. I wanted to make sure that my husband and I dove with people that understood we were new, this was our first dive, and needed a bit of reassurance. I'm so very very thankful we chose Octopus Dive School. Bryce took us out on the first dive and was very patient and didn't rush me as I worked on descent and equalizing. The next day, we went with Nuria and WOW, this was an even better experience. You feel as if you are diving with family. Nuria takes safety very seriously and provided a very thorough pre-dive session. I struggled a bit with descending and remaining neutrally buoyant and she was there every step of the way, very calming and intuitively knew what I needed to become comfortable and enjoy my 2nd ever dive. My husband and I enjoyed the experience so much, we have booked our advance open water training with Nuria and Octopus Dive School. Can't really say enough good things about this school. If you are thinking of booking training, a dive, or snorkel - book with them. You will never regret it :)
We loved our time diving with Octopus! We were lucky that friends who had been certified by Octopus introduced us to this amazing dive shop. We did 3 incredible dives with them and we can't wait to come back to do more. Awesome people and a fantastic setup!
