We are a relaxed dive centre, located in the quiet and picturesque scenery of Tanote Bay on the east side of Koh Tao. Our experienced English and German speaking team teaches CMAS and SSI courses in small groups, far from all hustle and bustle

Our wonderful bay is the perfect place to spend your valuable few weeks of the year, because we don’t have mass diving here. We take our time with and for our customers- not only underwater, which is probably the main reason that 80% of our customers are repeat customers. Have a peek in our guest book and visit us on Facebook.

We are looking forward to welcome you!

The Calypso Team

I've been to this diving school last week and can really recommend to do any sort of diving there. The staff was super friendly and we had lots of fun in our group of 4 people. We were happy to enjoy a very professional teacher. She told us really everything you need to know about diving, which made all of... More

I've done my open water license over there. It was the first time for me doing scuba diving. But my diving teacher (balu) was very patient and relaxed. He explained everything in details, so that i felt very comfortable at my first dive. The dive school located in the best bay of the whole island. So for me it was... More

Located right in the heart of Tanote bay, Calypso Diving has it all. A house reef you can basically walk into, a great crew who makes you feel like family and a boat for dive trips around the island. I did my CMAS here but the crew can also accomodate PADI. They are patient, go the extra mile and accomodate... More

Both myself and my partner are PADI open water qualified but rusty as we had not dived for just over a year. Great diving centre who take safety seriously. Completed a PADI review (went over some theory, setting up our gear and buddy checks etc) and a skills dive. We then did a second dive! Both were great! Tanote bay... More

the calypso diving center was not the cheapest one but it was definitely worth it! first of all it is settled in the wunderful tanote bay and you have the beautiful "house reef" right in front of the dive school, so you can start your dive at the beach! second there are not masses of other divers and the crew...
