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.

We learnt to dive with Calipso in the late 1990s and then dived may times with them. After a long hiatus we started diving again and were excited to return to Lanzarote and Calipso. We enjoyed 8 dives at Puerto del Carmen, Mala and Playa Flamingo and were very well looked after. Peter, and our guide Simon, struck the perfect balance of being professional and keeping us safe while also ensuring the diving is relaxed and fun.

We'll be returning as soon as possible for more diving and for our daughted to do her advanced course. I highly recommend Calipso for anyone interested in diving in Lanzarote.

I have dove with Peter and his team over 10 times in the last 9 years. He is very knowledgeable and is a dive guide that will let you dictate the type of dive and not force you into whatever is easiest for him. He is also great with children, having taken both of mine out for “Try dives” letting me tag along over the years. If you are a seasoned diver or looking to try it out, I could not recommend Peter and his team at Calipso more!

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.

Peter Monk is a very experienced diver in many disciplines, a fantastic guy, great sense of humour, with an underlying current of professionalism, which makes him the ideal guide through the Lanzarote dive sites. He gives a feeling of security and confidence. He spots numerous species of wildlife and is very accommodating to the photographer.
Peter will always be our first port of call whenever we want to dive on Lanzarote, and I’d recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who is unsure of where to go for an excellent and safe diving experience.

When we entered into Peter's shop, he asked us what we would like to see, and we asked for some fishes. We were not disappointed ! We did 6 dives with Peter, and they were amazing. We saw plenty of fishes, of various kinds and in different spots. Peter was very arranging regarding the schedule of the dives, always punctual, and a very good dive guide.
The material was in really good condition and comfy to dive with.

Peter Monk is an absolute gem!, Patient, enthusiastic and beyond qualified. What he doesn't know about diving isn't worth knowing.
He has a passion that is second to non for what he does and his enthusiasm is contagious!.
Full of helpful and incredibly useful information and unlike some instructors who want 'paying for their knowledge' he wants to share everything he knows to help you to become the best diver that you can and get the most out of the experience.
I cannot recommend Peter enough for all levels of diver.
On Lanzarote Peter Monk is the man to learn to dive with.

I had the good fortune to dive with Peter Monk at Calipso Diving in November 2020. We dove on the MUSEO ATLÁNTICO which was incredible and three other dives which Peter recommended based on our discussions , they were all fantastic. Peters enthusiasm and passion for diving are second to none. His knowledge ability are obvious . If you are experienced and don't want input that's fine and if you do then his wealth of experience will bring you on in leaps and bounds (I know ).Thanks Peter I had a great time and learned loads.

Great diving with Calipso in Lanzarote. Angel sharks, ray, some cheeky cuttlefish, a grouper the size of a house and lots more sea life. Very professional dive operation and competitively priced.

My husband and I went on 4 dives with Peter and they were all fantastic. He’s quite funny and fun to be around but really took diving safety seriously and took great care of us on our dives. We saw some other dive groups that were large but we were fortunate enough to dive just us and Peter so got a lot of individual attention, which was great. We had a good mix of boat and shore dives also and he even offered free hotel pick up/ drop off. We would definitely go diving with Calipso Diving again!
