Welcome to the Octopus Dive School. Octopus has been operating since 2005 and is a 5-Star Padi Dive Center located directly on the quiet beach of Sandy Bay on the beautiful island of Roatan, Honduras. We are now located at the Sol y Mar Beach Club, where our guests can relax after diving on one of the most scenic private beaches in the area or enjoy a great meal at one of several ocean view restaurants.

The Octopus Dive School offers the following:

PADI Courses

We 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.
