We have not dived for 5 years and therefore first did a refresher course with them. From the moment we arrived everything was well organised and the equipment in good order. The dive master was really relaxed and quickly helped us to overcome our nerves. We did two dives that morning that was an absolute pleasure.
When we arrived again two days later everything was already ready for us and set up to just get on the boat and leave.
Wonderful dive with the sea turtles.
Can recommend them even doing your training with them.

I have a Padi Open water qualification, hadn't been diving for a while and was really nervous about getting back in the water. Octopus handled it perfectly, the chief instructor (and owner) Ludo was really patient and attentive. He provided an invaluable refresher for me, calmed my nerves, and then took our group on 2 fantastic dives. Took great pains to point out eels, including Morays, clown fish, parrot fish, coral formations, angel fish - the list is too long. Can't speak too highly of the whole team, all really friendly, thanks particularly to Ludo for his patience and expertise.

I went diving with Octopus while on business in Mauritius. They were outstanding. The equipment was new. The instructor incredibly attentive and professional. The pre-dive instruction was very thorough and well done. The dive sites were great—we saw seven different types of eels, half a dozen turtles, rays, lion fish, and three types of clown fish. The instructor was enthusiastic in finding wildlife and pointing them out to all of us. On top of that their pricing was very reasonable as they are not tied to a resort. I would highly recommend them. I think the biggest indicator that Octopus is a great dive outfit was the majority of divers with us were locals—they dive regularly with Octopus. I will again most definitely the next time I get the chance.
