Very nice dive center. The material is brand new and the team is very very friendly. The boats are big and one of the few clubs on the island where you can do initiations in the pool and not directly into the sea.

I took 3 "adventure" dive classes through Calypso. I was extremely impressed and pleased with every part of the experience, from booking the classes through conclusion. Every staff member was professional and courteous. The dive instructor was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would definitely go back and dive with them again.

My friend found Calypso via Tripadvisor and being a seasoned diver he was impressed that it had a physical pool to do our pool sessions with. There were 5 of us - 3 of which were first timers and we had Angi as our guide. She went through everything exceptionally clearly and gave us step by step instructions in the... More

My friend and I were in Boracay for one week (mainly just to chill) but could not come all the way and not sneak in a fun dive. We did two fun dives and I also did a third fun dive. Right from a quick response to an email sent prior to arriving, to the welcoming and informative chat with... More

We last minute decided to go diving and the dive masters were all very kind to wait for us to grab our stuffs, and then patiently briefed the dive plan and site. Only managed 1 dive because of the strong waves during the typhoon season, felt really sea sick on the boat. The dive masters throughout the whole time took... More

My teenaged son and daughter did their Open Waters with Calypso and they had Angi as their dive instructor. She's cheerful and very patient with my kids. She was also very flexible with the training timings so they learned at their own pace. Both myself and hubby dived with them too. As my husband has not dived for a while,... More

I visited here last week with a group of friends to try the Discover Scuba Diving as we didn't have time to do the full course and it really was an amazing experience.

Our trainer did not check the tank properly, did not teach us about maintaining ear pressure properly and the dive site was so bad, we didn't see anything. Moreover, we paid 1500 pesos to rent a camera that took really blurry pictures. It was a waste of a day.

Thank you for your feedback and review. Concerning the tank issue, the equipment was set up and checked by the instructor while on the boat, there were no issues found at this time. After entering the water, the pressure gauge read close to low on air, as a result of this we changed your tank on the surface which is... More

I had come to Boracay after diving in Puerto Galera for the week prior. I had originally planned to do 4 dives but did only 1 due to the following: 1.

Thank you for your review and feed back on your dive experience with us. 1. Yes we do have a large dive boat which is far more stable in rough seas than the smaller banka style boats. Usually people who suffer from sea sickness let us know in advance of their issue and we can advise them accordingly. Sea sickness... More
