Comments Olympus does an excellent job on their dive charters. Excellent, knowledgeable Captain and Crew. A big plus was having the same crew for the week, as both sides quickly became familiar with each other. Lots of choices available to wreck dive, all with lots of history and a nice selection of marine life, including sharks on most dives.
