Diving without license - PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program: For all those who always wanted to take a closer look at marine creatures, the Try Diving program is offering the perfect start into the world of Scuba Diving. Joining one of our day trips (discover scuba diving is possible on any day of the week) you can do two dives down to our colourful reefs in our area. Whereas at the first dive, there is a bit of training involved, we are just enjoying underwater life for the second dive.
During the boat ride to the dive sites you will read in a brochure many important details about Scuba diving. Equipment, dive skills and especially guidelines for safety under water are being explained. After a briefing by an instructor you will follow his instructions on the way in the water and under water. At all times he will be with you and take care of you. Right under the surface you will do some exercises and diving skills prior to the actual dive.
Afterwards we will carefully descend at one of our shallow reefs. Being guided by the instructor you will reach a maximum depth of 12 meters but of course we first make sure that we always stay within your comfort zone.
At the beginning everything will be very exciting for you – maybe even a bit strange. But after a while you will get used to breathing in this completely new environment. Everything becomes quiet and you will start to feel comfortable. You will get to see many spots with schools of fishes and other spots where corals are pre-dominant. Nice and warm water temperature allows us to do long dives up to 45 minutes. But of course the bottom time is also depending on your own and the group’s air consumption.
This discover scuba program can be done on any of our dive trips. Nevertheless, we are recommending to join especially our Koh Tao tours on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. On these days we are usually heading to shallower and sheltered dive sites – perfect for beginners.
If you would like to go for further experiences in scuba diving, you can hop on one of our other dive trips now. The maximum depth will never be deeper than 12 meters and a Divemaster or an instructor will always be at your side, to support you. You also have the opportunity to use the discover scuba diving program as the first step for the Scuba Diver or the Open Water Diver course. If you sign up for one of these courses with us, then the discover scuba diving program will be counted towards your course.
For partner, family and friends who like to explore the underwater world without scuba equipment we have a guided snorkelling trip. In small groups of about 10 people we ensure individual service. The guide, a professional dive instructor, will fit mask and fins with every single participant. Before its time to go in the water he will give a detailed introduction into snorkeling with safety instructions.
In two sessions, each around 1 hour our friendly staff will guide to the best parts of the reef. To ensure the safety of our guests we have furthermore a member of the boat crew sitting in a kayak equipped with live vests, spare masks and snorkels. From his elevated position, he has a good overview at the people snorkelling at the reef.

I was very excited about my first diving expercience. After reading good reviews about Calypso we went to the office. It felt professional and the price was good/average. For a diving trip (2 dives) around Koh Thao about 4,900 bath. We asked for a dutch speaking instructor but while on the boat the Dutch instructor needed to snorkel with a big German group. We got assigned to Jill, who made us feel comfortable from the first moments. She was there with the two of us, and helped us with the nerves. Without her I don't know if we were able to do it. Thanks Jill for the amazing diving experience! Also the complete trip was wonderful with Calypso, everything right on time, great food and drinks and lovely staff on the boat and minivan services! If you want to go diving you should choose Calypso!

It was my first time diving. The diving team was very friendly and respect my fear and helped me a lot. I felt safe all the way. I went with my husband and we had an instructor only for the two of us. The boat was comfortable and fast. Though it rained a lot it was a fantastic experience.
