Owner description: Spectacular Diving in Gozo's azure waters Operating since 1985, we are one of the longest established dive centre on the island of Gozo. Calypso Diving Centre is a PADI Dive Centre and BSAC Centre of Excellence, operating from modern, superbly located facilities on the seafront in Marsalforn. Year after year, over 65% of our clients return to dive with us again. For beginners and seasoned divers alike, diving in small groups enables our highly experienced, multilingual professional staff to provide individual guidance in a personal, friendly and helpful manner. A full range of PADI & BSAC Courses is on offer, as is guided diving from shore, from a rib (using our own fleet of trucks and our own rib) and from a hard boat. We are a member of Quality Divers. Customer Safety is our overriding priority. We offer Nitrox for free! Gozo's dive sites are quite numerous for such a tiny island, and they vary from reefs, caverns and caves, to wrecks, drop-offs and tunnels. The underwater topography around Gozo is something spectacular and must be seen to be appreciated. Most of the dive sites are quite suitable both for the beginner and the most advanced. The clarity of the water is rarely below 25 metres and our seas are practically free of tides and currents. Also, the water temperature is never below 14° Celsius in the winter months and reaches a maximum of 28° Celsius in the summer months. We want you to have some unforgettable diving experiences at the best dive sites in the Mediterranean! Apart from our extensive diving services, we at Calypso Dive Centre can take care of your complete holiday package including transfers, hotel accommodation, private villas with pool, self-catering apartments, guesthouses, car hire, etc. We'd love to share our passion for diving in the amazing azure waters of Gozo with you!

“Still the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Dived all over, used several companies in Gozo, Malta and elsewhere. This one wins hands down. The staff listen to where you want to go and what you want to achieve then deliver in a friendly and professional service. Extremely well run by Tom and Tanja. Great dives from the RHIB. Keep it going guys, you are amazing.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Visiting Gozo with my family and diving with Calypso Diving Centre was a great success!

The Calypso dive centre is terrific! I had a number of very nice dives at different dive sites. The Calypso team made a great effort to compose groups with similar qualifications, and chose locations with safety and variation in mind. And last but not least: The dive centre is so well organized, - I did not spend a minute looking for misplaced gear or waiting for people who did not know what to do or where to be. Love it!

My thirteen year old son got his Open Water certification while we were there. A special thanks to Matt, who turned out to be a perfect instructor for him.

We will definitely be returning and diving with the Calypso divers!

“Calypso Dive Centre does it again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Thank you all once again for making my Gozo holiday something special. I have been using the Calypso Dive Centre for many years and can say without hesitation that you will not find better, anywhere. Well done Tom and Tanja for, yet again, finding excellent dive instructors/guides. It really is a pleasure to dive with any of them and this year I dived with Tom, Jayney, Julia, Matt, Dani and the irrepressible Nico. What a great team!!! Well done everybody. For those of you out there looking for diving safety, well maintained equipment, excellent local knowledge of the dive sites and a really friendly team, look no further that the Calypso Dive Centre in Marsalforn.

My son and I spent a week in Gozo, and had 11 dives with the best dive centre! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and organised everything the way we wanted. A special thanks to Janey for making the diving a safe and fantastic experience. Really the best instructor: Professional, calm and fun!
