Fantastic Mediterranean Diving experience / training / staff / location - you name it!
Oct 2020 • Solo
I said goodbye a few hours ago, and I already miss the people and the place!

Went to take my Open Water and Advanced Open Water in a raw. The entire staff was extremely friendly and dedicated from the first moment I stepped in. Kalypso has a broad range of Instructors from different countries - and then speaking different languages - allowing full understanding at every step of the way.

Full equipment available on site in real good condition under the help and supervision of the legendary Captain, which on top of highly skilled Instructors, adds to confidence and safety.

The site is quite unique. Located at the end of a water canyon through the rocky shore. Water temperature (25* C) and pristine visibility (25-30 m) are a game changer. The myriad of fishes and other marine life make every dive enjoyable.

Last, but definitely not least, THE CREW!! All of them are awesome. I particularly want to name Béa and Mike - with whom I had the privilege to continuously be trained by. I cannot thank them enough for the help, guidance and advices.

I cannot wait to be back! Thanks again guys!

Very nice dive center and super organized
All guides are very dedicated to their clients and they structure the dives in a super way. For example discovery dives are one by one which is not usual but very good for beginners. My dive instructor Jeremy gave us (certified divers) a good briefing and we had great dives.
Pick up service from the hotel is perfect and the facility at the sea is also nice with a cool beach and cliffs.

Best trip ever
Sep 2020 • Family
I can really recommend this trip. First I was afraid to dive because it was my first time but my diving instructor was very calming and empathic. They explained everything from the beginning till the end and we also got a certificate that we participated in an introduction scuba diving experience.

Amazing diving experiences and learning
Aug 2020
I've spent my hollydays in Crete and took the opportunity to pass the Open Water certification and then the Advanced Open Water certification at Kalypso Dive Center an School.

First, the site is beautiful, there are a lot of fishes, the water is clear and the diving experiences are un forgettable.

The team is amazing, very kind and professional. The lessons are prepared and the instructor adapts his (her) teaching to your experience and understanding (special thanks to Mike !).

Note that the courses are given in your own language (for example in my case in French). The center has many instructors from various nationalities.

In just few words : do not hesitate. Kalypso rocks !

Very good diving on the South off the island
Jul 2020
My son and stepson went on this trip from the north to the south. They were picked up on time and dropped off a little bit later than stated but it wasn’t an issue. They enjoyed the two dives they done and there was lots to do where they were based in between dives. We had forgot the PADI cards but they were traced on the system so it wasn’t an issue

Great experience
