The scuba dive trips will bring you to the best dive sites like Sail Rock, South West Pinnacle, Chumphon Pinnacle and Ko Tao. The underwater world is abundant and beautiful. Visibility can be up to 30m. The water temperature with average 30 degrees Celsius is perfect. So is the weather with mostly sunshine. Another option to go scuba diving are our overnight trips to Koh Tao. Calypso Diving is the only dive centre at Ko Samui that owns a live aboard boat. On an overnight trip you can do up to seven dives. We offer everything a diver could wish for: night diving, deep diving, wreck diving as well as dives around the beautiful reefs of Ko Tao. We also offer guided, individual snorkelling trips in very small groups. Calypsos snorkelling trips fit to everybody no matter young or old. If you stay at Koh Samui it’s the best to go for a snorkelling trip around Ko Tao. The snorkelling in the clear waters of Ko Tao is extraordinary fun. The tour leads you to different sites which are the best possible sites. The tour guide speaks English and German, gives a detailed introduction into snorkelling, the equipment and teaches a few handy tips. « less

We came across this school by accident when the school nearer to us in Bophut failed to respond to attempts to contact it to book the open water part of my 14yr old son's diving course. We were struck by how friendly and accommodating the staff seemed on the phone and my husband and son booked 2 days diving. As... More

Ciao, we are two italian girls on holiday in Ko Samui. One of us dives the other snorkles, so we like to take boat tours that give us a chance to do both at same time. Our hotel suggested that we contact the Calypso Diving Center here in Chaweng and we thank them for it! The organization was impeccable, they... More

On 20/8 2014 my son (age 14) and me went on a 1 day diving trip to Ko Tao. Diving guide from Calypso was Kurt. We had 2 great dives and really like the trip. Calypso operates an increadible Catamaran motorboat (very recently acquired) that already makes the trip to Ko Tao spectacular and comfortable. Good diving equipment and instruction... More

We went with Calypso diving. They specialize for German tourists as they are themselves Germans. The organization was very professional and the boats are at a high standard. They have a stationary diving ship at Koh Tao where we had a buffet lunch with local Thai food. It was delicious. Dominic went snorkeling with our group and he made a... More

My 17yr old son and I experienced our first scuba diving adventure through Calypso's Discovery Dive Program. Kurt was an excellent teacher, extremely patient and clear with his instruction (and even underwater communication). We felt confident and well supervised as we went down for our two dives (off Koh Tao) and you could tell that he has a passion for... More

Cannot find a single fault with the experience today. As a first time diver felt extremely comfortable and am wishing we did this sooner thanks to these guys. Also had some experienced divers with us and they rated it in the same league as I do
