Did the weekend away stay on the beach. Danny was a fantastic instructor and was very patient and informative for our dives. We slept in hammocks and had freshly cooked meals every day by a magician cook who made everything taste delicous. He even whipped us up a lion fish ceviche while we were waiting for lunch. Was v v... More

Did a mini refresher and two fun dives as someone who hasn't dived in nearly five years. Dived with Ceasar as the divemaster, he was patient and safe. The whole staff, including Estefany and Daniel go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and you are treated like friends and family rather than clients. I did the safari dives... More

Firstly, the negative: The diving itself was far from world class - but that isn't the dive centre's fault! Calipso were really excellent. My wife completed her advanced course, and me the wreck speciality. The equipment was of a good standard, the dive centre were very communicative, with great English spoken. They offered us a variety of options, and gave... More

It was my first time diving and i was pretty apprehensive but, three days later i had found a new hobby. My instructor, Barak, was absolutely incredible- patient, knowledgable, efficient, fun and kind. He truly made the experience and i learnt so much from him. Thank you Calypso!
