The whole experience was one of slow unpleasant chaos. Unpleasant treatment from the Russian & Greek staff. We were paying alot of money... More

We made our first dive ( 2 parents & 14 yr ) and we liked it a lot. After the dive we did some free snorkling. Nice place to spent a day. We want to come back again!

Kalypso must be Crete's best diving center. They have a professional crew, who speak many languages. And they always puts your safety first and do a fantastic job so you get a great experience under water. Do you have a dream about trying to dive, or take a full PADI Open Water Course, I can heartily recommend Kalypso diving center.... More
