The Dive Center
Here at Dive Bermuda Grotto Bay we have made it our mission to build upon our 30 year+ 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 take the same approach to customer service, safety and professionalism as our sister dive center, Dive Bermuda at Fairmont Southampton. 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.
We have completely revamped the dive center itself, we have all new Scubapro equipment and a brand new purpose built dive boat, Bottom Time. Returning customers will notice a big difference in our approach and the service on offer.
We proudly offer top notch diving equipment from BCD's, regulators, and fins from Scuba Pro. This professional gear is meticulously maintained and serviced so that when you go diving with us, you can trust the diving gear you rent from us is ready to take you where you want to go, diving!
Where to find us
The dive center is located by the sea at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort and can be accessed from the main lobby by a short walk down to the dive center. Please note that taxis do not collect from the beach so you will need to return to the main lobby for a taxi.

This summer we are happy to welcome Steff who is a Canadian who came to Bermuda via Roatan. She loves to be under the water blowing bubbles, but when she's not combing for macro life she might cooking up some curry or doing yoga.
A big Bermudian welcome to this Aussie who's been traveling the world as a scuba instructor for the past 3 years. Mitch loves teaching Advanced Open Water courses and when he's not diving chances are he might be watching a moto GP race.
Dive Bermuda was founded in 1981 as Nautilus Diving directly off the beach at the Fairmont Southampton Resort. 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. As of 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.
In 2016, Dive Bermuda expanded and opened their sister dive center at Grotto Bay, which was formerly Triangle Diving. We fitted out our dive boat, dive center, and rental equipment to match the same high standards are our flagship dive center.
