CALYPSO PRIVATE AREA
Calypso has 3 principal areas: • the BBQ and kitchen, • bar and dining, • hammock area.
All areas are for Calypso passengers only during the five hours you will be at Tortuga Island.
Calypso’s whole area is protected from the sun with giant parachutes hanging from the native Pachote trees and each of our dining tables has a white umbrella and is covered in white linen for a casual elegant dining experience exclusive to Calypso Cruises.
Calypso has a full bar with all your favorite tropical cocktails and cold beer.
There is hammock area where you can relax, close your eyes and listen to the soothing sounds of the ocean and the rustle of the swaying coconut palms, while the crew prepares a sumptuous gourmet lunch, featured in Gourmet Magazine.
Calypso’s Yacht Catamaran Manta Raya
Manta Raya was constructed using female molds and epoxy resin biaxial and triaxial cloth with 4-cm high-density PVC core. Kevlar was added in the bow for impact resistance.
Manta Raya was built by an internationally famous marine architect Paul Lindenberg, and is capable of cruising around the world. She has 2 giant nets on the forward decks perfect for sunbathing a meter above the clear waters of the Gulf of Nicoya, 2 small fresh water deck pools and three decks. Licensed to carry 104 passengers, Calypso limits the group size to 85 for more comfort.
BANANA BOAT RIDE
The Banana Boat Ride, included in a Calypso Cruise is very popular and fun for every age.
The banana boat is pulled by a panga with a spotter for safety and has the capacity for 10 passengers.
No visit to Tortuga Island would be complete without swimming and snorkeling in the beautiful turquoise warm water Tortuga Island is famous for. A small open boat will take you 500 meters off shore and provide a mask, snorkel, fins and an inflatable swimming vest.
After your Calypso guide shows you how to use the equipment you are free to enjoy a pleasant dive and spectacular underwater show of colorful tropical fish.
