We did 4 days of diving here. Well organised by a nice French couple. Service on boat is good. You can order a good lunch after the dives for 7,50 euro. We had a good time.

It was relaxing to dive with them and they showed me beautiful coral reefs full of... More

We have dived many places in the world, and Octopus diving center is one of the best we ever dived with! Right from my first e-mails, reply was fast, they took good note of my “wish to dive”-list and even got us to South Mariane 2 times – really amazing place! Pickup was good, and Nitrox (free!!) tanks were ready... More

Octopus is a well-run and professional operation. The team is experienced and friendly. The dive equipment and boats are new and well taken care of. We did ten dives plus a night dive and had a great time. Saw sharks, rays, turtles and much more (including an octopus or two!). I'd recommend staying for their lunch. A big thanks to... More

Highly recommended! I communicated with Helene who was very courteous and informative. They arranged a pick up and drop up to and from the hotel. We did a double dive at booby island and coral garden; both were full of sea life. Had a great time and would recommend them again!
