This year Calypso will celebrate her 40th anniversary.

Calypso took the first ever tour to beautiful Tortuga Island on January 5, 1975 and since then has escorted almost 1 million happy tourists on the cruise Calypso made world famous.

Known for consistent quality and unparalled service has been the reason Calypso remains the #1 most popular tour in Costa Rica.

The founders of Calypso Cruises oversee the tiniest details ensuring everything it takes to make a cruise with Calypso memorable and a must do when visiting Costa Rica

What makes Calypso so special is that beside spending a wonderful day at the beautiful white sand beach of Tortuga Island, riding on the world class catamaran Manta Raya, eating a gourmet meal featured in Gourmet Magazine, our passengers get to enjoy a cruising experience UNIQUE TO CALYPSO CRUISES. Returning to port in the afternoon, Calypso's Captain will escort his passengers on a tour of exploration of the islands in the Gulf of Nicoya, important to not only foreign travelers to see and learn more of Costa Rica's history but also for national tourism and those who want to see up close, maybe for the first time, the beautiful and protected uninhabited islands in the Gulf of Nicoya accessible only by water. This makes Calypso unique, combining the Tortuga Island Cruise with a Tour of Discovery.

To see more of Costa Rica and be part of our history don't miss this one day tour experience.
