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.

Had a great first dive with Marius and Jill. The guys were extremely patient and fun to be with. Highly professional yet so entertaining. Calypso people are highly responsive over email and clear all your doubts. If you are diving in Samui, do it with calypso

Sorry Calyspo, I have to give you a 1 rating. One of the two engines broke down after sailing for 90 minutes. Then we had to go very slowly back for 2-3 hours. No dive. Morning was ruined. The main thing you want from a dive company is consistency and safety. You book a dive, they show up when said,... More

I had an absolute amazing day out with Marius (my DM) and the rest of the Calypso Diving crew on what would not only be my first dive experience in Thailand, but also my first Whale Shark sighting! Would recommend the Big 3 package to everybody. Well organised and well executed.
