I’ve been diving with this group for roughly 10 years, and before that with other dive shops on the island for another 7. Once I found this team in Sandy Bay, I was hooked and just finished another amazing week. If you are looking for small group diving and personal attention, this is the place. First time I have seen the new location, and I love it.
Excellent spot for a dive shop, the shop is modern and clean with an excellent hot shower to jump in after a cold dive. Not in the West end but they will pick you up. The shop is safe and the staff are all really nice. The instructor was excellent and the owner is really sweet and chatty. Really good fun vibes
I found Octopus Dive School by accident. It was a happy accident! I dove with them for four days, until the end of my vacation. All of the instructors ( Vee, Rob, Sara, Ryan and the boat captain, Quinn, were professional, helpful, and approachable. The owner, Nuria, is so kind and welcoming. She prioritizes diver safety by keeping her diving instructor to diver ratio small. The atmosphere is relaxed, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. I look forward to returning to Roatan and diving with them again! Another Sara..
I really enjoyed my dives with this shop. I got a discount since I was staying at Roatan Backpackers Hostel and got a drive from the hostel for each dive, which was very convenient. Staff were knowledgeable, experienced, and had good attention to detail. Equipment was in good condition aswell. They also provide coffee!
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.
