George has been referred to as Mr Calypso and Mr Gozo, but we rather like to call him "Papa George” as he is always approachable for any matters of our guests and the team alike. As a PADI and BSAC instructor with more than 27 years of experience, he’s got a keen sense for people and business. Even though he spends more and more time in Switzerland with his wife and his children, he is the core of the dive centre.
Tanja and Tom manage the dive centre successfully since a few years now. Tom, as Diving Director, is the man who looks after everything "outside" - the divers, the compressor, the RIB, the instructors. Tanja makes sure that every potential guest receives an accurate answer to his or her enquiry, checks guests in and out, and looks after the dive shop.
Joey has been with Calypso for decades and is the "Master of the Pumps". He is a skilled gas blender and looks after everything in the compressor room:
filling and maintenance of cylinders, compressors and the Nitrox membrane. He also takes care of our unaccompanied divers when they come for their air and Nitrox fills.
"Slowfin"Holger does not only always have a big smile on his face, but also is an experienced SSI Divemaster instructor with Platin status. After a couple of visits as a guest he joined our team in 2017 and loves to show the beauty under water to our guests. Whilst he has a true passion for diving his personal specialty is teaching dive courses.
PADI Instructor Jonathan, called "Pitcho", is originally from Belgium. He spent last diving season in Malta and fell in love with Gozo and its beautiful dive sites during that time.
Whilst speaking English of course his mother tongue is French, and he will especially look after our French speaking guests.
"Like some people practice yoga to find serenity I practice diving: the silent world is my second home."
Maren came as a dive guest in summer 2017 and loved it here.
Working during winter season with our Quality Divers partner Sea Bees, the idea was born to spend summer here in Gozo as part of the Calypso Dive team.
Maren is SSI Instructor and looks forward to beautiful dives and teaching courses in German, English, Italian or even Mandarin ;)
