Welcome to Calipso Diving – Lanzarote
A WORD FROM PETER:
If you’re reading this page that’s great, as hopefully you’re keen to find out more about Calipso Diving and what we have to offer! Firstly, as the owner of the dive centre, I make it my mission to ensure every visitor, regardless of their diving experience, has a fantastic time and always leaves with the desire to come back! If I don’t achieve this then I’ve failed.
I’ve lived on Lanzarote for over 20 years and with my advanced PADI and BSAC instructor qualifications both me and my team have trained literally thousands of divers, introducing them to the many and varied wonderful places to dive in the warm waters that surround our island.
Over the years I’ve seen many changes on the island and new dive centres come and go. I’m proud that we have stood the test of time and have the enviable record as the longest running dive school under the same ownership on Lanzarote. Hopefully we’re doing something right!
As well as instructional diving, we offer guided dives, equipment rental and are always willing to accommodate groups (big or small) who may have specific diving objectives and /or requirements.
Hopefully the pictures and information on this page will give you a feel for what we are all about, and if you’re still undecided then why not pick up the phone and talk to us, or simply drop me an email.
I look forward to seeing you sometime soon!
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 modern compressor to pump our own bottles. You’ll never run out of air!
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.
Puerto del Carmen is the home of our house reef. It’s a great spot offering choices of shallow picturesque dives along the harbour wall, mid-range 18m dives for the qualified diver and deep 30m dives with caves for advanced divers.
We have a combination of shore dives and boat dives on our dive schedule. This is an example of boarding a RIB to dive “The Statues” at Playa Blanca where you’ll see an amazing underwater museum of artwork!
We have a great team to look after you. Peter’s never far away, you’ll probably hear him before you see him!
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!
At Calipso 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. Training, guided dives or just equipment rental, we’ll do our best to work around your requirements.
One of the most popular diving spots on Lanzarote is Puerto del Carmen. This offers beach and jump entries, harbour wall, drop-offs, caves, sea horses and much more! You’ll love it!
One of our most popular dive sites is Mala. It offers everything a diver could wish for and if you’re lucky you may get to feed a Moray Eel! Regular visitors will also remember Mala for other interesting sights!
