“Full service dive operation”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

My fiancé and I were looking to take a last minute vacation and contacted Octopus Diving for the first time. It was a last minute idea so we reached out to Sally who was very prompt and accommodating.

I myself was looking to get certified and was able to achieve this with the help of my instructor Michelle. She was awesome!!! Very clear in her direction and calm in the water which made me feel just as comfortable. On my last day of certification I became sea sick (who knew?) and Michelle got me through it like a pro should.

Everyone at octopus diving is very welcoming while making you feel as though you are a good friend, yet treat you like a client should. Full service operation!

Thanks for the awesome experience Octopus Diving!

“watching octopus while diving with Octopus”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Had the opportunity to get out diving again with Octopus Diving in Grand Case again last Saturday. We made two dives, New Reef and Fish Pot. Both dives were fabulous, James did a great job as dive master and Lee was top side as captain. We saw turtles on both dives, sharks, barracuda, lobsters, green moray along with numerous reef fish and coral but the highlight of the day occurred on the second dive when we came upon a large octopus feasting on a queen conch. Can't wait to get back out.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I was so impressed with the customer service from our experience. JT was a great boat captain and took great care of us on our dive. He worked really hard to make sure our experience was a positive one. Mark also took great care of us while diving. Great diving experience, great shop and wonderful people.

“Great Diving with Octopus Diving”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Michelle Taylor – Fantastic Instructor
The “Way-Family” is now certified PADI divers thanks to Octopus Diving and Michelle. We had planned to complete the 4 open water dives with Octopus Diving a month before arriving in St. Martin and the whole experience from reserving to completing our goal was spectacular. Michelle’s’ attitude and life skills allowed me to feel comfortable with the open water dive process, as it was my kids we were taking into the depths. She was very clear in her delivery of the material prior to each dive and we all completed the dives with success.
Thanks to Octopus Diving and a special thanks to Michelle

“Chris and Sally are AWESOME!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Our family wanted to try something new and adventurous on our last vacation and after very little debate we settled on scuba diving. Our TradeWinds captain recommended we go with the best on the island for our first dive and we're so glad we did. Chris, Sally, and our captain (a certified dive master) took six first timers out to Creole Rock, brought us down one by one, and led us on an adventure on that we will never forget. Their experience and professionalism calmed our first-time butterflies. Everyone loved it and we all came back to the surface with a newfound respect. Some of us have even started looking at PADI courses. Thanks again to Chris, Sally, and TradeWinds. Wishing you the best! Thanks for sharing your passion with our family!
