We had a brilliant time doing the practical part of our PADI open water course here. Peter, our tutor, was kind, patient and thorough and the other staff were friendly and professional too. It's a great place to learn due to the sheltered bay with varying depths that is teeming with fish and other sea life! We saw octopi, star... More

Absolutely terrific, awesome Experience. This review is long overdue. Our diving on the south shore occured last April. Yet, it is an experience my boys and I still discuss. We are so grateful we were able to dive with Kostas and the team at Kalypso diving. My children were inexperienced divers; yet, the Kalypso team structured a series of simple... More

If you want to try a diving experience for the first tim(like us) this is the place to go. As a group of four I was nervous and worried about diving but these were soon sorted by the professional staff and the 1 to 1 session. A big thank you to the team and Alex whom I spent 50 minutes... More

During our recent holiday to Crete we visited Kalypso Dive Center following a free demonstration at our hotel pool in which my 10 year old son and 9 year old daughter decided they'd like to try scuba diving. Where to begin? We were collected promptly from our hotel and driven through the beautiful mountainous scenery of Crete with various stops... More

A really memorable day out! Kalypso offer well organised, professional, friendly one to one instruction in 6 or 7 languages in a beautiful, sheltered spot with clear water. It's an all day adventure with pick up and drop off at your hotel. You can buy food there at the resort or in a very small supermarket (snacks only). The introductory... More
