Everything about the experience was great! From the initial education session all the way to the actual diving. Our instructor was both very friendly and patient, clearly knowing was he was doing. We felt very safe. Money was worth the adventure.

It was a great experience doing my first dive in a Cenote. Thanks from th guys at Calypso I felt safe and had a genuinely good time.

If I'm ever back in Tulum, will definitely return for a cave dive.

My experience was amazing here!
My partner and I came for our first time diving experience. We went in not knowing anything about diving but Alex gave us all the information we needed to know to dive successfully. He taught us 3 hand signals, how to manage our buoyancy, and the best way to swim and breathe.
As we swam around, he pointed out all kinds of aquatic life here, gave us a nice history lesson on cenotes and talked about his experiences which was amazing.
I was extremely anxious and my own thoughts were really getting me me, making me feel insecure and worrisome, I feel that Alex caught that, stayed right by my side and would ask us every now and then how we were feeling, if we needed a break or wanted to swim under for a longer period of time.
We asked him questions about the other cenote dives, halocline, nature of Tulum and recommendations for food spots and he had great answers for all.
I gave him a nice tip at the end of it all because I couldn’t have been happier with my experience.

I plan on coming back once Im certified to do another great dive!

The meeting location is actually easy to find and very cute. Our instructor, Alex, was very knowledgable but concise. He didn't over complicate things and we always felt safe with him. The cenote was beautiful and we had a lot fun with Alex. You can buy pictures at the end of the tour and they are very reasonable.

This dive shop is very professional. Safety is their number 1 priority. Alex was great dive master. He took great care of us. Cenote diving was awesome. Highly recommended if you want something different than ocean diving! Thanks Alex and Calypso Dive team for a fantastic experience.

La Calypso went above and beyond to ensure we all had a great diving experience. I am PADI certified but needed a refresher after nothing diving for a couple years. I would highly recommend anyone who is shopping around to find a dive center to use La Calpyso they truly look after their guests!

We had an incredible experience with the Diver Center. They were recommended by a good friend (who happens to be in the Navy, a serious diver)... and it did not disappoint!

They were very communicative and helpful to set up the session on WhatsApp, and everything went extremely smoothly. We arrived in the morning, they have a great place right downtown where you learn about your gear, they go in-depth on what to do, and it was totally professional. Then we drove 15min. to the cenote.

Our guide was excellent, very calm and helpful. This was our first time doing scuba - my girlfriend and I - and it was very reassuring to have such a great guide.... on top of all that, the Cenote was gorgeous, clear water all the way down. We will definitely do it again once we're back in Tulum!
