“Excellent diving experience”

I had a very beautiful diving experience with the Octopus Diving Center in Skiathos.Theofanis (the owner of octopus diving center) is a highly experienced instructor and gave me tips how to improve my diving performance.

“A very professional diving center”

Theo was à very nice and carefull diving instructor. I made some very interesting dives. À lot of fish and nice under water landscape.


Theo always ensured we wouldn’t dive unless the water was calm. We saw lots of lovely fishes and even an octopus on two dives which I was able to stroke, it was so soft and could feel the suction from its tentacles.
I thoroughly recommend Theo to other divers as we didn’t feel we were being rushed and he really did look after us. Thanks Theo.

“The best scuba diving in Skiathos”

I’ve been to Skiathos four times now and have been diving with the owner, Theo, at Octopus Diving on three of these trips. If you want to go scuba diving, either as a qualified diver or for a “try dive”, then this is the company I would recommend. Theo is very friendly and always conscientious when setting up the diving…
