  • Fully refurbished in 2019
  • Stunning, modern cabins
  • Extensive Naturalist Itinerary
  • Single cabins available

Calipso has just completed a stunning refit. She has not just been refurbished, her interior has been virtually rebuilt! Her owners wanted her to offer something different, and she is now the only vessel to operate alternating naturalist and diving cruises year-round. The beneift to non-divers? More space for you to enjoy the wonders of the Galápagos from above the water's surface!

Modern, chic, comfortable Calipso now features ten extremely comfortable cabins for a maximum of 16 guests. Of course taste is subjective, but we think that her new decor is among the most chic and stylish to be found on any Galápagos cruise boat today. Each cabin features beautiful, modern wooden furniture coupled with contemporary decor and fantastic panoramic windows. This is more hotel suite than boat's cabin!

En suite bathrooms are beautifully contemporary, with rainfall shower heads and porcelain fixtures. Luxuriously soft linens and quality toiletries complete the luxury feel. Every cabin is individually air conditioned, with accent lighting and plenty of power points for recharging your devices including dedicated USB points. You'll also find a TV in every room.

Sociable luxury Calipso's communal areas have been given the same stunning attention to detail as her guest cabins. Beautiful modern wooden flooring is complimented with light-colored furniture, and the neutral color scheme makes the boat light and airy. There are wonderfully comfortable sofa's in the main salon, as well as a relaxed dining area and a chic bar.

Outside, take advantage of the stunning dive deck even if you're not diving! This is the perfect place for some quiet time away from it all as you take in the sites and sounds of the Galápagos on your cruise.

If you want unspoiled views of the islands and the remarkable Galápagos wildlife then head up to the huge sundeck. Here you'll find plenty of comfortable loungers, as well as an al fresco bar and BBQ station, alongside an additional dining area. And what could be better than watching the equatorial stars come out from the comfort of the hot tub jacuzzi pool you'll also find here?

Unrivalled Galápagos wildlife itineraries No matter how stunning Calipso is (and she is stunning!) it's definitely the Galápagos wildlife that is the star. Calipso offers a range of three-, four- and 8-day naturalist itineraries that have been cleverly designed to give you a real insight into Galápagos.

Her bilingual guides are among the most experienced in the Galápagos fleet, and their knowledge and passion for the islands really helps to bring you closer to the creatures, geology and people of the archipelago.

Activities that you will enjoy include snorkeling, panga rides, an excellent variety of wet and dry landings, walks and excursions. Another benefit of choosing a Calipso cruise is the complimentary use of snorkel gear, wetsuits and even an underwater camera!

Our comments We can't believe the transformation of Calipso. She hasn't had a refit, she's been reinvented! The quality of her interior and facilities now matches the quality of her Galápagos itineraries, which were already superb. We particularly love her spacious sun deck with al fresco bar - it's the perfect place to watch the sun set at the end of another amazing day on your Galápagos adventure.

Sustainability on board the Calipso

At Galapatours we love and respect the pristine ecosystems and fascinating wildlife of the Galápagos Islands, and we insist that our cruise partners do too. To protect the archipelago all our cruise vessels must have sophisticated water filtration systems, modern efficient engines, and strict maintenance schedules to minimize pollution.

The Galápagos National Park authority also defines exact cruising routes that dictate which ships can visit highlights at specific times, as well as limiting passenger numbers. These measures ensure that animals and habitats are not disturbed by too many visitors.

But at Galapatours we like to go even further. We voluntarily offset all the CO2 emissions of every cruise we sell - at no cost to you. And you can also play your part by traveling responsibly and following our Eco Guidelines during your stay. Click here to find out more about these guidelines, our commitment to sustainable tourism, and the Galápagos National Park rules.

Food & Drinks on board the Calipso

The food on our Galapágos Cruises is among the very best you will find in South America. Most of the on-board chefs are internationally trained and have prior experience working in the best hotels and restaurants in Ecuador and indeed around the world.

You can expect a first-class selection of food, including a good variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally sourced poultry and fish/seafood, rice and pasta dishes. Most boats will always include some typical Ecuadorian dishes on the menu during your cruise. If you have specific dietary requirements then these can usually be accommodated by the chef providing you have given advance notice. Please make sure you tell us about any allergies or dietary requirements you have at the time you book with us. If you leave it until you arrive at the dockside, then it may well be impossible to accommodate your needs.

Most boats serve a range of options at meal times in a relaxed buffet-style. At the first class and luxury end of the market, some boats have more formal dining where you will be served at your seat. However the atmosphere is always relaxed on board our cruises, and never stuffy or formal.
