During our recent holiday to Crete we visited Kalypso Dive Center following a free demonstration at our hotel pool in which my 10 year old son and 9 year old daughter decided they'd like to try scuba diving. Where to begin? We were collected promptly from our hotel and driven through the beautiful mountainous scenery of Crete with various stops... More

A really memorable day out! Kalypso offer well organised, professional, friendly one to one instruction in 6 or 7 languages in a beautiful, sheltered spot with clear water. It's an all day adventure with pick up and drop off at your hotel. You can buy food there at the resort or in a very small supermarket (snacks only). The introductory... More

Very good introductory lecture in the start to understand the equipment, answered all my million questions I had in my mind. The instructors were experienced and good, which assures me and my families safety. My kids all in... More

Diving on the south coast of Crete is an experience not to be missed. Kalypso have the ultimate spot for all levels of experience. In a day you can learn to snorkel and try out Scuba in the safety of a gently sloping sheltered bay with crystal clear waters. The resort is difficult to get to on your own but... More

Excellent set up and the instruction is first class. Special mention for Costas, our driver for the transfer from the North of the island to the dive center on the South, and to Gerome who took myself out for my dive and my wife for her snorkelling. His middle name could have been Jaques', he was that knowledgeable and enthusiastic.... More

Diving with Kalypso was very nice - the staff were professional and friendly and the dives were really beautiful. I have never dived from the shore to such deep areas and there was a lot to see. In the break between dives and after it was possible for us and our family to use the Kalypso resort which was great;... More
