Safe and professional outfit. Myself, an advanced diver and my boyfriend, dive master, were both satisfied with the business. Gear was all in functional and safe condition. We dove Casa Cenotes and Dos Ojos, both great dives. Tips - we decided to do a walk in, which was fine but we struggled to find the location from the street. Nico... More

We really enjoyed our snorkel outing with this company! Our guide was incredibly friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and patient. We got our gear in Tulum then drove about 30 minutes to the "pet cemetery" cenote. This particular cenote has a ton of stalactites and a very low ceiling with long twisting passageways. And bats! I think we would have been a... More

We did 2 grand cenote and dos ojos (barbie line) recently and it was incredible. Would recommend dos ojos more personally due to the beauty, colours, dive route and lack of snorkellers. Having never dived in cenote's it was very much 'other-worldly'. 80m visibility down there was amaxing. The dive tuition from Brenda was excellent and the company were very... More

My wife and I went to Dos Ojos with Nicolas, who knows the cenote like the back of his hand. His experience allowed us to enjoy the trip and the incredible views without worrying about the technical stuff. It really was a memorable outing. I heartily recommend La Calypso.

I dove with Calypso on two separate occasions. Once to Casa Cenote and once to Dos Ojos. Both were beautiful, and both divemasters were helpful and great with newbies! I Would definitely recommend them.

I am really pleased to recommend this dive shop and the folks who operate it. I am an advanced open water diver and my boyfriend had never been diving before our trip to Tulum. I really wanted us to have some time in the water together so I was looking for a shop that would potentially let us go together... More

I did the open water course and it was the first time for me to dive. Nicolas and Sandy were good teachers. Unfortunatelly the current was really strong during my whole stay in Tulum, so we could only dive in Casa cenote. My boyfriend got sick on the flight, so he was not able to dive and it was absolutely... More

On a recent trip we did 6 dives with Calypso. Day 1: both Dos Ojos dives. Day 2: two reef dives. Day 3: Angelita and Casa Cenote We had a different dive master each day and they were all amazing. Incredibly knowledgable, friendly and helpful. If you're in Tulum I'd highly recommend diving with La Calypso. Don't miss Angelita Cenote... More

Dove 2 days with Paul at various cenotes. Gear was in excellent shape. Prices were reasonable and including all gear and cenotes entrance fees. Diving group was kept deliberatively small at 4 people. Paul discussed each dive site in detail and was very informative about cavern diving. He was a very friendly individual with very strong cavern diving skills. He... More

First and foremost I would like to thank the lovely Dive Master Julia @ La Calypso Dive Center You taught us so much. My girlfriend and I were a little nervous to dive the cenotes. Julia helped us feel at ease and went above and beyond what we ever expected. We did two dives at Dos Ojos. An unforgettable experience.... More
