After 20 years without diving due to a right ear decompression problem (takes a lot of time and effort to equalize), redid a PADI open diver certification. Was able to take 5 dives thanks the patience of the understanding of the staff for my ear condition. They have good equipment, train instructors so is a reference for quality and have... More

At first, I was really afraid of diving but the team convinced me of the safety so I became fully Pady Open Water certified. I really want to go back to this place to have my Pady Advanced certification! This place was great, there are one of the few diving center with a pool in Boracay. So it is really... More

To Andrew, Chris, Sue, Cheery and Gracey. You made our dive training a pleasure. Good humour, professional training and guidance - Chris you were great. Many options for all grades of divers and plenty of cross checking for all our safety. Keep up the good work.

It's taken me a little while to get around to writing this review as I visited the guys at Calypso back in April! Sorry guys :) We didn't know who to dive with before we arrived in Boracay but a short walk down White Beach it was clear that Calypso looked well equipped and totally professional. A few dives in...

first time diving with them, very good experience. too bad the sea was choppy and their ship is not really suitable for such choppy sea as we are having hard time boarding the ship unlike in other place. They also forgot to return my diving card and my wireless air module but that is not a big issue though.

During my visit to Boracay, I recommend this place. And indeed, I found that the staff there is amazing. Focus on safety. A pleasant atmosphere. There was a guy named Darwin who gave me any help I needed. Even I bought my GoPro camera and thy helped me to install and arrange it. thay are highly recommended!

We spent a few weeks in Boracay in June and though there are many diving centres Calypso stands out amongst them. I was already a certified diver but, from what I could see their school is awesome. They took great care of me and my equipment. A special shout out goes to Darwin, Roy and Angie, diving with these folks... More

I went diving with Calypso during Chinese New Year 2014 and boy, I loved it! Got my Advanced Open Water certification with Chris being my instructor. He's probably the most professional diver I've dived with. Takes great care of safety and is a very relaxed person, oh, and funny! He was open for all sort of dives (specialities) that I... More

Loved the diving vis was great and the dive master on day one was Darwin. He made shore every thing was done and it was all about enjoyment. Day two started out at 8 in the morning with Roy and the dive site was so good with the shark and fish life that I have not seen in my 30+... More
