Regarding Scuba Diving at Ko Samui Calypso Diving is the meeting place for vacationers, who like to explore the underwater world of Ko Samui (ko Samui Dive) and Ko Tao, since 1988.To go Scuba Diving you can go on a day trip with two or three dives in a changing weekly program whole year around. The scuba dive trips will bring you to the best dive sites like Sail Rock, South West Pinnacle, Chumphon Pinnacle and Ko Tao. The underwater world is abundant and beautiful. Visibility can be up to 30m. The water temperature with average 30 degrees Celsius is perfect. So is the weather with mostly sunshine. Another option to go scuba diving are our overnight trips to Koh Tao. Calypso Diving is the only dive centre at Ko Samui that owns a live aboard boat. On an overnight trip you can do up to seven dives. We offer everything a diver could wish for: night diving, deep diving, wreck diving as well as dives around the beautiful reefs of Ko Tao. We also offer guided, individual snorkelling trips in very small groups. Calypsos snorkelling trips fit to everybody no matter young or old. If you stay at Koh Samui it’s the best to go for a snorkelling trip around Ko Tao. The snorkelling in the clear waters of Ko Tao is extraordinary fun. The tour leads you to different sites which are the best possible sites. The tour guide speaks English and German, gives a detailed introduction into snorkelling, the equipment and teaches a few handy tips.

Snorkelling trip

We had a great day out! Dive instructors were awesome, and the snorkelling was amazing. We had great water visibility with an amazing array of fish. Great dive boat and crew.

This was one heck of a dive boat - cushioned seating on 2 levels, sunbathing area, free WiFi and as smooth of a ride as one could imagine. Which was awesome since the good dive sites are really far. The team was great, all super friendly and helpful. Pickups were timely and easy. Equipment was solid and ready for us.... More

Going out snorkeling with the kids was the best day out we have had on Koh Samui island. The crew was very friendly and helpful. Fluent in English, French, Italian and German.

A great company for both Snorkelers and Divers. We had a great experience with Calypso overall with the food, diving and snorkelling experience. Unfortunately, the first dive site did not provide much enjoyment it was rather dead and only some fish however the second dive site, the "Twins" at Koh Tao was excellent. Avoid the Japanese Garden dive site at... More

I guess there is nothing wrong with the Calypso Diving but as the visibility under water was not great I felt I did not get value for my money. The boat was also entered by at least two other dive shops which made the whole trip much more "crowded". We got several quick and cheap meals on the day trip.

Hello Hans Christian, thank you very much for your feedback. That's nice to hear that there is "nothing wrong" with us and that we are "totally ok". But then it would be very interesting to know how you get the idea of us being expensive because the water was not as clear as you would have wished that day. If... More

For around $80, we were treated to a boat ride to Ko Tao island with snacks, lunch and the awesome crew (shout out to the brilliant Jill!) that lead half of us to a deep-sea dive and the rest to snorkeling. This was a life-changing experience, if there ever was one. Highly recommended.

Calypso has a big luxury dive boat that sets them apart from other schools on Koh Samui who use smaller speed boats that can be crowded and bumpy or larger ferries that are slow and limited in the sites they can visit. Calypso offers the best of both worlds with their new dive boat. Plenty of space, a quick smooth... More
