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

We chose to do the snorkeling trip rather than the more stressful learning to scuba dive trip and we had an amazing time. After a fascinating drive from our hotel on the north coast to the dive center in the south, we were fitted with wetsuits, masks, fins, and snorkels. There were only two of us snorkeling that day, so... More

We booked immediately, because he was very nice and made us feel very safe, even though it was only the hotel pool.

My friends and I wanted to try diving and we stumbled across the Discover Scuba Diving course offered by the Kalypso Diving Center. My experience can be summed up in 3 words, A-MAZ-ING! One of the team picks you up from your hotel and takes you to a beautiful albeit remote "Kalypso Cretan Village" which is a resort on the... More

First we were taken from the hotel right in time by the friendly English guy and taken to south coast of Crete. The road itself was a real journey with wonderful view and marvellous gorges. Diving was easy and safe with personal instructor for each of us. Thanks to the team for the great day!
