My husband and I had a blast with the Roctopus crew on our honeymoon! I was enrolled for my open water certification and unfortunately was unwell on the first day, so my instructor John came over to our accommodation especially to catch me up on the course content. These guys are so flexible and accommodating they can make anything happen and John and Tom were awesome at helping me develop confidence under the water. Even though I didn't end up completing my certification this time around (sorry John!!) we had such a great hang on the boat with everyone, I went snorkelling off the boat on the second day and my husband completed 4 x fun dives which he loved. Hands down the best dive shop on the island! Thanks Roctopus!!

We went diving with the instructor Hannah Blake and it has been the highlight of the trip so far. We had a life changing experience that is very affordable. 10/10 going again.

Walked into Roctopus after it was suggested to me by a friend that used to work at another dive school on the Island, the rest is history. I was taken care of straight away by all the great staff members helping me choose a course that suited me best with the time I had. I opted for open water and advanced. The next day I was introduced to my instructure Birgit!!! she was amazing from start to finish. She was professional and was always a great leader in making sure I was safe and was always doing the skills the correct way....... But made it alot of fun at the same time. Showed me skills I'll be able to take all over the world, Birgit made this while Exsperiance alot of fun but also professional which is exacly what I wanted. Thank you Roctopus, your staff and boat crew are all amazing and massive thank you to Birgit for being so awesome!!!

Hi Jimmy

Congratulations on completing your OWC and AA with Birgit! Birgit has been one of our solid dive masters for over 8 months, she decided to further her dive education and went through our instructor program as she loves to dive and wanted to pass on her passion for the ocean and take the next step and teach people to dive. She is killing it at being an instructor and its nice to hear such positive feedback. Thanks for taking the time to write us a review I will pass on your comments to Birgit and the rest of the dive team, welcome to the sub culture!
