My daughter and myself went for an introductory scuba course, we were told it was 2 hours snorkeling, than lunch, I would drive to a nearby village, and then scuba lesson in the afternoon. This was not the case, we were expected to stay from 09.30 until 15.00 without food. This is not easy with a 13 year-old daughter. Her... More

When you booked the course the person who sold it to you explained that he wasn't sure if the hotel restaurant and snack bar were open yet as it was so early in the season and suggested that you bring bottled water...

Such a calming sensation just me breathing and the water reflecting off the bottom - with Greg at my shoulder all the time. If I can do it.... More

After traveling to Crete with no expectations of diving out of season we were delighted to be approached by one of the kalypso dive team (Greg) and immediately snapped at the opportunity. If you go out of season be sure to take your lunch/ snacks/ drinks etc. As nothing at the hotel complex where the dive centre is based will... More
