Learn to dive with Calypso
We offer diving courses for all levels - from introduction dives, Open Water Diver Courses to advanced training for experienced certified divers. You can choose between 2 different international recognised diving organisations - SSI and PADI.
Have a quick look how the courses differ in order to choose the best option for you. Your choice might depend on the way you prefer to study, your time frame available and your home country. Click on the respective logo to see the whole range of courses available of each organisation.
For diving a good and healthy physical condition is required. Every diver and student has to either fill in and sign a medical screening statement or bring a medical certificate along from their (diving) physician back home stating they are "FIT TO DIVE". Please find the medical screening statement attached for your information. We recommend you see a diving doctor before you start any kind of scuba diving or freediving.
