“Crete's best diving center”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Kalypso must be Crete's best diving center. They have a professional crew, who speak many languages. And they always puts your safety first and do a fantastic job so you get a great experience under water. Do you have a dream about trying to dive, or take a full PADI Open Water Course, I can heartily recommend Kalypso diving center.

Thank you gays you are the best.

“Snorkeling at the Kalypso”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

We chose to do the snorkeling trip rather than the more stressful learning to scuba dive trip and we had an amazing time.

After a fascinating drive from our hotel on the north coast to the dive center in the south, we were fitted with wetsuits, masks, fins, and snorkels. There were only two of us snorkeling that day, so that when the others were doing their safety briefings, we were already in the water with our own personal guide. Then we spent some time relaxing on hotel-provided deck lounge chairs and using the pool before going back for a second round. The fish are great and it's a good spot for first time snorkelers and divers.
