The purpose for our visit to Lanzarote was to get my 15 yr old daughter, Millie, under the water. From the off Peter was very professional, emailing me from the UK and arranging to come to our hotel on the day we arrived and give her a free of charge taster session in the pool. Millie was a little nervous, due to having issues with her ears when she was younger, but Peter was calm, paticent and supportive the whole time. Millie loved it, and due to only being here a short time, we signed up to do 2 dives in 1 day. Peter even offered to take us the very next day, a Sunday when most dive schools are closed! (Later we found out Peter had agreed to take us on the Sunday even though it was his wife's birthday!) The dives were fantastic, and have 2 dives really made a difference, as Millie was able to spend dive 1 getting used to being underwater and so on dive 2 she was ready to start exploring! We think Peter is a great teacher for those who may be a little wary and are looking for a friendly and professional person to look after them. We highly recommend Calipso and Peter and will be diving with him again soon.

l just came back from Lanzarote and so happy I chose to dive with Calypso Diving. Its been quite some time since I was diving and wanted to get back in the water again. Initially greeted by Karen who was awesome throughout and very approachable.. She knew her stuff and gave me a great breakdown of the Dive centre the equipment the divesites and the itinerary for the coming 4 days. Had a great 2 dives and got to meet the owner Peter who was great banter and made me feel welcome and valued. Divesites were beach entry and exit but just as requested relaxing, recreational and not too challenging.... and if I had more time I would have signed up for another few. Karen even took the time to send a few photos from the dive which was above and beyond so i will treasure the memories of my wee trip to Lanzarote and out with Calypso... Cheers Guys.. See you again hopefully.

Having initially contacted Peter by email from UK and receiving prompt and informative info . I booked initially two dives , Having enjoyed the informal yet professional approach from both Peter and Karen I dived a total of eight times in seven days . The angel sharks are quite a sight !!!. These guys have managed to strike a balance between enjoying scuba and paying close attention to all needed safety aspects . I look forward to diving with them again !!!

I chose Calipso diving as a) it was run by a BSAC advanced instructor and b) it had been recommended to me by someone from my dive club. Peter is as mad as a box of frogs however, when it came to actually diving, he is a consummate professional, SEEDS briefing and buddy check each time prior to diving. Safety and enjoyment were paramount. Exactly what I was looking for in connection with hitting certain targets with regards my BSAC Dive Leader training. Many thanks Peter and I know that you’re going to get another visit from someone else from my club in January. Already highly recommended you to them. Thanks once again. Nick
