Kalypso (Dive Center & School)

The daily excursion starts with the pick up service from the hotels or pick up points. Our service covers practically all tourist areas of the county of Rethymno, including Georgioupoli and Kavros.

We drive for around 50 minutes through a fantastic mountain scenery and we arrive in Kalypso Cretan Village, the unique hotel. Here, in this beautiful place in Kalypso Bay we are “at home” with our diving activities and you’ll find peaceful areas and the best underwater scenery of Greece.

The bay is an excellent place to learn diving, the clear sea starts very shallow and it goes slowly to a deeper lever. There are plenty of fish and sea animals to observe and you can learn how they live.

We provide a high quality photography service. You can make your holidays’ memories lasting and share them with your beloved ones by the use of latest digital technologies. You can take your personal photo CD with you, to print a theme, put it on your computer or share it on facebook. Our underwater paparazzi Bea takes pictures of our divers, guests and underwater life for the last 10 years. At the end of the day you will receive a memory certificate from your “journey”.

All courses are done in English, Greek, French, Dutch, German, Russian and Polish languages.

In the evening, our buses will bring you back to your hotel, with lovely memories and exciting experiences in your baggage.
