Regarding Scuba Diving at Ko Samui Calypso Diving is the meeting place for vacationers, who like to explore the underwater world of Ko Samui (ko Samui Dive) and Ko Tao, since 1988.To go Scuba Diving you can go on a day trip with two or three dives in a changing weekly program whole year around. The scuba dive trips will bring you to the best dive sites like Sail Rock, South West Pinnacle, Chumphon Pinnacle and Ko Tao. The underwater world is abundant and beautiful. Visibility can be up to 30m. The water temperature with average 30 degrees Celsius is perfect. So is the weather with mostly sunshine. Another option to go scuba diving are our overnight trips to Koh Tao. Calypso Diving is the only dive centre at Ko Samui that owns a live aboard boat. On an overnight trip you can do up to seven dives. We offer everything a diver could wish for: night diving, deep diving, wreck diving as well as dives around the beautiful reefs of Ko Tao. We also offer guided, individual snorkelling trips in very small groups. Calypsos snorkelling trips fit to everybody no matter young or old. If you stay at Koh Samui it’s the best to go for a snorkelling trip around Ko Tao. The snorkelling in the clear waters of Ko Tao is extraordinary fun. The tour leads you to different sites which are the best possible sites. The tour guide speaks English and German, gives a detailed introduction into snorkelling, the equipment and teaches a few handy tips.

I was really looking forward to this 3 tanks diving trip and booked weeks before based on their reviews. I receive the final confirmation at 8:00PM, 12hours prior to the diving trip. Everything was perfect till this point. Then they wrote me another email one hour later (9:00 pm), claiming that they have to cancel the trip on the second... More

This review hurt me personally. We planned a trip for this day with just 3 of our customers. That meant we would loose money to run this trip. Unfortunately I got a cancellation of two divers around 9pm. I immediately informed the reviewer apologized having to cancel. Everybody will understand that we can't run a trip for one person for...

The whole crew was very friendly and my instructor Jill was constantly checking in to make sure I was comfortable underwater during my refresher course and the subsequent dives. If I ever come back I would definitely book with Calypso again.

It was my first time diving. The diving team was very friendly and respect my fear and helped me a lot. I felt safe all the way. I went with my husband and we had an instructor only for the two of us. The boat was comfortable and fast. Though it rained a lot it was a fantastic experience.

Our guide Jilly always take good care at her members. Really enjoyed the dive in a great yacht with nice crew. Overall,It's much better than Discovery Dive.

Not like the others use speedboat. Calypso's big catterman is the best, comfort and nice. And dive guide Jilly always gives you a well briefing before dive. Truly a FIVE STAR dive shop. If anyone hasn't make up there choice of dive shop, please don't hesitate to book your dive tour with Calypso. 或許探索潛水中心的評價較高,但真心覺得沒有這間好!光是大船不用跟別人還有一大堆裝備擠在一起就一切都值得了。
