  • We can only recommend Octopus dive school. The team is highly professional and very friendly. Also the equipment is new/in good condition. And the dive sites are stunning! We would definitely go there again.
  • This was an awesome facility and very friendly staff. The introduction to the class was awesome and their guidance and tips were very helpful I will definitely come back and I recommend this dive school to anybody who wants to start diving.Velvet and Manu were awesome tour guides And pointed out lots of cool s***
  • Absolutely fabulous experience. Top notched dive instruction, with every attention to safety, comfort AND fun! The dive locations were exemplary. Highly recommend, we can't wait to go back!
  • For the second year in a row, I have been diving exclusively with Octopus. They are a small shop with 1 boat and the best staff you could ask for. All the Divemasters are very experienced, highly skilled and extremely patient! This winter I completed my Rescue Diver course with Velvet who has 20 years diving experience. Group size never exceeds 6 and many times I have been diving with just myself and the Divemaster. The dive sites are very close, and if the weather is bad on the North Side, they will shuttle us to the South Side so you never miss a day's diving. The equipment is very well maintained, and they take care of everything from making sure the gear fits, to setting up your BCD and tank on the boats. The divemasters are mostly female as well which I think is incredible and gives me a lot of ambition to continue my studies to become a Divemaster as well. Very professional and friendly, Octopus is definitely the place to dive in Roatan!
  • These gals run a serious operation where safety comes first b and 'pointing things out for you to see' comes right behind! I recommend them highly!
