Fabulous location. Last time I tried I wasn't happy snorkelling- this time I felt so safe I not only snorkelled but I scuba dived too. Fantastic. Training was comprehensive. Safety was paramount. Such a calming sensation just me breathing and the water reflecting off the bottom - with Greg at my shoulder all the time. If I can do it.... More

After traveling to Crete with no expectations of diving out of season we were delighted to be approached by one of the kalypso dive team (Greg) and immediately snapped at the opportunity. If you go out of season be sure to take your lunch/ snacks/ drinks etc. As nothing at the hotel complex where the dive centre is based will... More

The children had an amazing day-including seeing a Kalimera (Calimara) underwater, this gets bigger every time she describes it and it was already about 80cm... More

We were first introduced to Kalypso dive centre by a guy who was walking on the beach offering a free trial at scuba in the hotel pool on the beach. I have wanted to try this for years so myself and another guy took him up on his offer. It was just a quick spin around the pool with him... More

The most fantastic location for 1st time divers & experienced divers too, I took my 3 kids aged 19. 18 & 14 for their 1st dive. I'm a certified diver so I did a dive with 3 other divers while the kids were taught the basics & had a great snorkel session. After my 1st dive they were ready to... More

What a wonderful day. Just returned from our scuba diving experience and cannot praise the centre highly enough. We were picked up from our allocated hotel pick up point by two lovely guys, who gave us a running commentary on all the different areas we were passing through. The safety talk on arrival was very informative, as were the team... More

We were snorkelling there for one day, the little bay is full of different fish, the stuff is kind and helpful and funny. They took us by car from our hotel to here directly, we were provided with everything that we needed. We had a wonderful day.

We went there with our very young children. It was the first dive for our oldest. My wife and the youngest enjoyed watching becaus you can really follow the divers, some swimming, the pool and all other facilities for free. The very nice instructors know at least 10-15 languages between them so the change of finding an instructor in your... More

This was my first experience of diving, and I cannot put into words just how amazing this was. The instructors were incredible, and made this a real once in a lifetime experience for me. I would go back in a flash, and if you have the chance to, I would highly recommend that you use Kalypso!
