“Safe, Friendly and Great Instructors”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

My 2 girls, aged 16 and 13, did their SCUBA Open Water with Andrew as their instructor. Could not ask for better instruction and a more patient instructor. Andrew helped the youngest overcome her fears and qualify as a Junior SCUBA while the oldest got her Open Water.

Equipment was all top notch and great and comfortable boat to get out to the sites.

“Excellent diving center”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Divers know this business does not generates a lot of cash. Therefore most diving centers are just a shed with nearly nothing in...
This one is an exception.
Resort is large modern and clean. The offer accommodation for fanatic divers, a pool, good instructors and dive masters and a bar...
If you like to dive in decent confort and safety conditions, that is the place.

“Great diving experience”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We are a family of four all PADI Advanced, we have dived all over he world with many dive shops. Calypso Dive were very good, their equipment is well maintained and quite new. The dive guides were fun and good to dive with, we went with Roy and Renato. They are very safety conscious and they do not overload their boat with too many divers so there is plenty of room. They tried to give us varied dive sites and they were all good. We thoroughly enjoyed diving with Calypso.

“Comprehensive Training”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

My friend and I were looking for somewhere we could do a Discover Scuba Diving and are we glad that we have chosen to do it with you despite the fact we could have probably gotten it slightly cheaper somewhere else.

Our instructor, Rainer did such a fabulous training with us. Especially since we were new, you gave a very in depth pool training ensuring that we were comfortable with our equipments and we were prepared for what we would experience out in the open waters. The training though in depth was filled with much laughter.
Out in the open waters, you paid very careful attention to our body language. It was an absolutely fantastic and we couldn't thank you enough for the experience. Def will be back and this time with a licence. :) Keep up the great work guys

“Great diving experience”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

After reading here some comments and been there actually looking at the options in boracay, we decided to go with calypso, we had a great time, this was our first time for my family, my husband and my 2 teen kids, 15 and 18, the training from jeb and oliver was great, so smooth the transition from the pool , (that not all centers have) and been in the ocean, with the video and talk, the training in the pool with 2 different deeps, made it so relaxed and we really enjoyed the whole time, we definitly recommend this place and if we come back to boracay I will have another sessiom here. Thanks jeb and oliver! ps. I' m still waiting for the pics :)
