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!

Diving at this centre was a fantastic experience with very caring instructors. But first we had to get in the wet suits. This was a hysterical experience with members of our family completely unable to get their feet in. I mention this because it served to relax some taught nerves. We had a theory session with an instructor who took... More

My husband and 10 year old son (qualified at Easter) dived with this company and they were brilliant. They both did the 6 dive each package, even though they dived from the beach, the dives were very different. Great dive instructors and team, really professional, friendly and helpful. If we come back to Crete we would certainly use them again.

Following a visit from a rep called Greg I decided to book this trip for my daughter aged 17 and son aged 16. I was really impressed that I could accompany the children even though I was not taking part. Neither of my children had ever scuba dived and my daughter wears glasses and was over the moon to find... More

Decided to do this following a visit to our hotel by a couple of their team: the free go in the pool was enough to convince Dad, the 17 yr old and 13 yr old they wanted to go to the centre. Mum was able, for a fraction of the cost, to go for the ride. We were picked up... More
