Last weekend we completed our PADI dry suit certification with Olympus Dive Center. They worked really hard to coordinate this course for us. We had a fantastic instructor, Jon Belisario. He was a great instructor all around. He was extremely knowledgeable, very patient, made us feel comfortable and completely safe - I am really glad we found ODC and that... More

Olympus Dive Center in Morehead N.C. Is a first class operation. I've been to several countries and done many types of diving, but these folks have it all. Recreational or tech, beginner or professional they've got you covered. Big group, they've got you covered; small group no worries; Need equipment, new they've got it, new or rental they've got it.... More

Loved the whole experience. I came here for my birthday to dive with the sand sharks. I booked the dorm as diving is not a cheap activity for $30/night. Careful though, you have to bring your own sheets or sleeping bag. I actually forgot about that detail as they don't remind you and I had booked it over a month... More

The staff members at Olympus Dive Center are service-focused and responsive to inquiries. I love that they also offer a great and affordable dive lodge for approx. $30/night plus tax. It's comfortable and can lend divers a chance to exchange tips and information from their aquatic adventures. The Dive Shop offers a wide range of equipment and dive suit sizes... More

Loved going out to dive with this crew and had some pretty good dives. It's hit or miss if they are going out based on weather - they are very conservative. The accommodations for a large dive boat are very nice. I really appreciated diving with a safe crew.

Amazing team of instructors, dive masters and boat crew. Although the weather didn't cooperate much the learning and overall experience was super professional and friendly. We can't wait to go back.

The shop and people that work there are nothing less than amazing. They know what they are doing and don't compromise our safety in anyway. I did 2 days of diving and on our way out the first morning we received a detailed safety briefing. I never felt uncomfortable one second. Weather pending can change their operations daily and the...

I was in NC for 5 days with 4 days of diving booked this Aug. I have been an Olympus customer for several years and as always their staff, facilities, and service is second to none.
