Octopus Dive School deserves SIX stars! We had an absolute blast with everybody at this dive shop. Don't let the "school" throw you off, that's just an additional service for people who need it. They are so professional, so fun, and all around top notch....More

I did seven dives over five days with Octopus in late July. As I was the only fun diver there, most of the time I dove with just Virna or Aaron. The dive sites around Roatan are simply amazing. Coral life is not as healthy...More
