COVID-19 Update: Great news at last! We’re delighted to announce that Calipso Diving will re-open for business on Monday 18th May. In line with government guidelines we have conducted a deep clean of the dive school and diving equipment to ensure the safety of our customers. We will operate with recommended social distancing and request customers to adhere to instructions from our staff. We’re really excited to welcome divers, both new and old friends, and can’t wait to get back in the water! See you all soon!
Hi, my name is Peter and thanks for visiting my website. I own Calipso Diving; a dive centre I started in Lanzarote over 20 years ago! Since then we’ve welcomed 1000’s of visitors to enjoy the fabulous year-round diving Lanzarote has to offer. Whether you’re an experienced diver or trying it for the first time, my promise to you is you will have great fun and it will be the most memorable experience of your holiday! You can learn more about what we have to offer on other pages of the website, or feel free to call or email me anytime. My team and I look forward to meeting you!

The dive centre is located in the popular resort of Costa Teguise on the east coast of Lanzarote. We’re ideally situated to reach all of the dive sites within 20 minutes (or 40 minutes for Playa Blanca). We own four buses so transport is never a problem and we can provide free hotel pickup/drop-off. We have a shallow lagoon on our doorstep (3-5 metres depth) which is perfect for introductory dives, you can even feed the fishes! This gives you a real taste for diving in the sea.
Inside the dive centre you’ll receive a warm welcome from the team where we’ll discuss your diving needs and aims, answer your questions and work out the best dive options that fit with your holiday. Whether it’s training, guided dives or just equipment rental, we’ll do our best to work around your requirements.
We stock a full range of modern equipment including ladies, gents and children’s wetsuits. All suits are stored in a warm environment so you won’t be climbing into cold, damp suits. We’re also happy to provide drying space for divers’ own equipment prior to your journey home.
We have a fully equipped air conditioned classroom to enable you to undertake your academic studies which are required for many of the diver training programmes. Of course if you prefer you can always sit outside in the glorious Lanzarote Sunshine!
At the end of a day’s fun diving, your final chance to get wet is rinsing off the diving gear in our dunking zone. Many divers use this as an excuse to soak their colleagues prior to drying off in a nearby bar with a cold beer!

Try Dive: Peter made me feel very at home with his own brand of humour and very at ease before going out to try diving. What can I say he seems very knowledgeable and we was definitely diving longer than some of the other diving companies that were doing it at the same time. I would highly recommend him.

The best diving center in Costa Teguise: For about two months I causally dropped by Calipso diving and joined Peter in more than 10 occasions. He’s a lovely, sensitive instructor with lots of experience, always prepared for any eventuality. He always had everyone enjoy a lovely dive, be it Dive Masters or OWD students. Since I joined on separate dates I met a few of his customers and I can say his magnetic personality and quality of service brings many of them back year after year.
