The Dive Center

Here at Dive Bermuda we have made it our mission to build upon our history of diving excellence to create the best dive center in Bermuda. Our attention to safety and detail means we hold our customer's satisfaction above all other factors. Professionalism and customer service are our mantra.

We aim to offer the best diving product on the island, the best boat, best equipment and the best team. Add to that world class wreck diving and pristine reefs under the most beautiful sea in the world, and you have all the ingredients for the most outstanding diving vacation for you and your family.

But don't just take our word for it. See what other guests have to say about us on TripAdvisor and Facebook.

If that still hasn't convinced you, why not explore aboard our dive boat Narcosis and inside our dive center located directly on the beach of Whale Bay for a first hand look at what to expect when you dive with us.

Our Story

Dive Bermuda was founded in 1981 as Nautilus Diving in the same spot here on the beach at the Fairmont Southampton Resort, we even still have the same phone number. Making the most of Bermuda's world class diving and the boom in recreational scuba diving, Nautilus quickly garnered a reputation as a fun, safe and pioneering dive centre.

In the 1990's we changed owners and our name to the now familiar Dive Bermuda. In 1994 we joined PADI and have been a member for over 20 years now, training 1000's of divers from beginner all the way to instructor.

In 2011 we changed hands yet again with local lawyer Mark Diel taking the reigns. Mark worked at Dive Bermuda as a young man and has been associated with the company in one way or another ever since.


I give Dive Bermuda an enthusiastic shout out for starting my diving hobby. I decided to make my first dives on a trip to Bermuda. I had a couple of scheduling issues that Chris was able to accommodate and allowed me to do two consecutive days of two tank dives. Capt. Heinz was great, offering unique insights into local diving history.
Diving on Mary Celestia on day one and Hermes the second day were my favorite parts. I especially want to thank Will for being a great dive leader and setting a good example on how to safely conduct a dive, especially for someone like me with limited experience.
