Calypso needs your help!
To each and everyone of the Calypso family!
In 1985 George started the Calypso Diving Centre, which was the only operating dive centre in that year. Not many divers had heard about Gozo as a diving destination at that time. George was told that he was crazy starting such a venture, and that he will not last very long in that business.
So here it is, our 35th anniversary! We were all so looking forward to celebrate this with you, but, unfortunately destiny had other plans, with the consequences you are all well aware of right now.
Like many small businesses, we are living through unprecedented hard times due to the Covid-19 pandemy. Gozo’s tourism industry is currently non existent because of this crisis, and nobody really knows how long this will last.
After the long winter months, we were looking forward to a good summer season with you but this came to a complete stop with no end in sight. No incoming tourists mean no income whatsoever.
We are still hoping that travel restrictions will be lifted later this summer. In the meantime, we have to struggle to pay our monthly expenses, such as rent, wages and utility bills.
We are all determined to be still around when things get better but we need your help to survive this.
We are now turning to each and every one of you to see if you could help us in any way during these difficult times so that we can keep on going for many more years of diving with you. Every donation, no matter how big or small, would be greatly appreciated, and will help us to keep our doors open to welcoming you again at Calypso.
We thank you in advance for your generosity and can't wait to see you again to enjoy memorable dives with you here in beautiful Gozo!
Your Calypso Team
