Services

Our daily excursions start with the pickup and transport from your hotel or from a pickup point. Our service covers all areas of the Prefecture of Rethymnon.

After a 50-minute drive through a spectacular gorge and mountain scenery, followed by breathtaking views of the Libyan Sea, you will arrive at Kalypso Cretan Village, nestled in the beautiful bay that is home to our dive center. This is where you will be able to relax and find some of the best underwater spots in Greece.

The bay is an ideal place to learn to dive. Starting in shallow and clear water, it gently slopes to a deeper level. You will be able to watch numerous fishes and underwater creatures in their natural habitat.

All our courses are in English, Greek, French, Dutch, German, Russian and Polish language.

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

Discover Scuba Diving

Introduction to scuba diving off our beach with one dedicated instructor per diver!

No prior experience needed.

Minimum age: 10 years.

With Discover Scuba Diving, you will experience the thrill of diving - a mix of excitement and adventure, a sense of freedom and serenity - under the close supervision of your own dedicated Instructor who will make you feel safe and comfortable from the very first moment. Nothing compares to the “weightless” exhilaration of breathing underwater. Make your dream come true and enjoy the magic of sea life in gorgeous water!

After a short briefing, you will have plenty of time, with the help of our staff on the beach, to get to know the diving gear.

Together with your dedicated Instructor, you will first step into shallow water and do some practice on the surface.

Then, you will both start your descent to a maximum depth of 6 m. The underwater life in the Libyan Sea is very rich and there are many colorful fishes to be watched in their environment, as well as octopuses, big shells, starfish and an amazing landscape. After the dive, we will explain the flora and fauna that you saw.

At the end of the day, you will receive a memory certificate of your “journey”. In addition, you will be able to take the many fun pictures of your dive home on a USB stick.

Kalypso Dive Center provides you with a high quality photo service.

Great fun for everyone, so let’s dive!

An incredible experience for children aged 8-10! In a one-day session, a dedicated instructor introduces each child individually to the use of the diving equipment and to actual diving. Youngsters can join the family fun of scuba diving or even start a trend. The program is conducted in the Pirates’ Fjord, by qualified Instructors. The dive goes to a maximum depth of 2 m.

At Kalypso, even in the very shallow water, colorful fishes, starfish, shells and, with a bit of luck, octopuses can be seen.

At the end of the day, every participant receives a “memory certificate” and has the opportunity to take home on a USB stick high quality pictures of this first dive!

Snorkeling in our sheltered bay is fun, safe and an easy activity for all the family.

Join our qualified Divemasters and Instructors on a guided tour!

After a short theory session about how to use the equipment, we will identify the marine life that you will get to see. We will then take you, in small groups, on a 45 minutes guided tour in the sea. We start in very shallow water and will progressively swim around our bay. You may use your snorkeling equipment all day long and go back to the water for more fun after the guided tour.

At Kalypso’s Pirates’ Fjord, the bustling life beneath already starts at a depth of 2 m. The water is crystal clear with a visibility of up to 30 m. You will also be able to see a small wreck lying on the seabed at 22 m.

Our Team will ensure that you have an amazing experience and one of the best days in your holiday.

You have the opportunity to take our photographer under water with you and have pictures taken during your dive.

There is no age limit; children must simply be able to fit into the equipment.

We also organize night dives.
