We are a 5-Star Padi Dive Center located directly at the quiet beach of Sandy Bay on the beautiful island of Roatan, Honduras, at the Blue Bahia Resort.

The Octopus Dive School offers the following:

PADI Courses

We are a 5-Star PADI dive center, operating since 2005, with a focus on smaller groups and personal attention. We offer PADI courses from Open Water all the way to Divemaster taught by our qualified instructors. Classes can be held in English, Spanish, German, Italian, and French. Our class size is limited to four scuba diving students per instructor. We also offer Discover Scuba Diving experiences for those of you wanting to try diving for the first time without having to take a full course.

You will feel as part of the Octopus Family right away. With over 50 different dive sites to choose from, we take you to some of the best walls, canyons, caves, and wrecks the Caribbean has to offer. You will experience calm, warm, clear waters (yearly average temperature are 24 to 32ºC, 75-90ºF). We accommodate our clients by choosing sites based on their personal requirements, interests, and scuba abilities. We also organize whole day trips, sunrise, and night dives upon request.

We dive with a maximum of six divers per instructor, and there is no fixed time limit for our dives. For you and your family’s convenience, we also offer Snorkel Safari, Bubblemaker (8 years+), Open water Junior (10 years+), weekly fish ID Happenings, and much more.

Had a great time diving with Octupus Dive School. Their dive masters were very professional and made me feel safe. Went with another company and definitely preferred them. I highly recommend them! My only regret was not buying one of their tshirts!

After doing quite a bit of research, I finally settled on Octopus Dive School as the place for me to get my Open Water certification. My boyfriend and I only had 4 days in Sandy Bay before we moved across the island, so I opted to do the PADI elearning prior to coming to Roatan. This is a great option... More

Could not recommend this shop enough. I did 5 fun dives with Octopus Dive School, while my girlfriend earned her Open Water Certification. The Octopus instructors are veteran divers, professional and friendly. Velvet did a super job teaching Mandy, and the location on Sandy Bay is absolutely beautiful with many convenient dive sites along the reef. We're already trying to... More

We spend the week diving with the Octopus staff and had a great week. The main goal of our trip was to have my 10 year old complete his open water dives. They did not have a 62 Cu Ft. tank so we started with a 90 Cu Ft. tank. This proved to be a bit large for my boy... More

I can not recommend Octopus enough. They were excellent and Velvet was outstanding. They were extremely accommodating. I can't wait to return there for more dive adventures. After 20 plus years of diving, I finely decided to get my Advanced Diving Certification and Velvet was an excellent instructor.
