Dive Today! No Experience Necessary

For those that are un-certified divers or have never been diving before, we have a program that allows people to experience the wonders of St Martin's underwater world without having to go through a whole certification course. We call this a Discover Scuba Dive. After checking in at the dive center we fit you with the best diving equipment available and then take you to our Nature Reserve to learn about diving from a seasoned instructor, and then ... you get to go on a real scuba dive!

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT? At Octopus Diving our instructors take personal care of you and we only ever take out small groups, so you know you are getting the ultimate VIP service and individual attention. We also offer the option of a second dive at our famous Turtle Reef, where we see Green Turtles and Hawksbill Turtles almost every day!

Outstanding customer service

The beautiful waters of Saint Martin are teeming with life. If it's the big animals that you like, then come dive with dolphins, turtles, rays and more.  If it's the little critters you prefer, we've got that too! We see nudibranchs, seahorses, hairy crabs and some stuff we can't even identify. Let our dive guides point out all the best things to see. Experience the amazing underwater world with our outstanding customer service.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT? Well, firstly, no cattle boats here! We only take out small groups of divers on our amazing boats. Secondly, we always cater trips to your experience level (whether it be beginner or advanced), AND we make sure you spend more time underwater and less en route with our fast, comfortable dive boats. We take you to all the best dive and snorkel sites on both sides of the island – over 30 sites including our top-secret spots!
