Last Sunday I went on a boat trip with some roommates and other friends. We had the best day on Curacao yet! The boat is really comfortable and the captain is also a very good BBQ chef ;). If I'll go on another boat trip, I'll definitely choos Calypso again! Thanks Jaime for a great day on the water!

My husband and 9 month old took a beautiful boat trip with Jaime. We drove from Jan Sofat to Barbara Beach, where we swam, ate lunch and chilled out on the boat. Great music, great vibes and we felt completely safe and at east with our little one. Jaime knows the island and the waters inside and out - a trip with him is a must when you visit Curacao!

We had booked a snorkling trip through their website, received a booking confirmation by e-mail, but they never showed up at the indicated location for the tour start... we waited for more than half an hour, tried 3times calling them with no answer, and then when we finally reached them the person on the phone simply said that something must have gone wrong with the booking (probably because we booked rather late) and that was it... no suggestion to cure things or anything... we then spoke to a person at the location as more trips start there, and it os just very easy to drive by car to the location the boat takes you (the tug boat), located at a small beach just a few miles away(just don’t many people know about this) ... and so we snorkled at the same location for free... so a horroble start did end well...

Dear Alex, We dearly apologize for this mishap. Our webmaster has taken steps to insure this does not happen again. As an serious operator of boat trips, we put value in necessary preparations for our trips. Hence why bookings for the same day have to be confirmed by telephone. We do reserve the right to cancel a trip if we feel preparations are insufficient. Thank you for your critique and we are happy you visited our location at the Tugboat and nevertheless had a good time. (HH)

The excursion was excellent, great snorkeling and wonderful BBQ. Snorkeling at the sunken Tug Boat was amazing. The sight-seeing through Spanish Waters was a real experience. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because of the problems with directions. We followed the directions exactly as written in the email. There is no sign to indicate Calypso Tours at the gate to the harbor. We went further up the road and asked locals - no idea. We returned to the harbor area and asked the "guards" at the gate - they had no clue of Calypso Tours. The email confirmation said "Incidentally, we depart from a different - nearby - location. If this is the case we will inform you". Did we get it wrong?? Others near the gate were equally "lost". No sign, no one that had a clue about Calypso Tours. Luckily, there was a police patrol car that was just exiting the harbor area. They also had no idea, but when I gave them the phone number (I left my cell at the rental unit), they called and relayed a message that we should wait at the end of the dock to be picked up. Had the police officers not happened to be there, and because we had not pre-paid, we would have probably left and found another snorkeling excursion.

It was one of the highlights of our trip to Curaçao. We had an amazing tour through the Spanish Waters where Jaime explained us about the history of this part of Curaçao. We also saw the beautiful villas, the Rolling Stones, the mangroves and many more...

Jaime and his crew did an excellent job, they made us feel like family by going the extra mile. He knew every good spot to swim, snorkle, dive and also about life on this Island.

We want to thank you guys so much for this great experience and we highly recommend this tour to our family, friends and others coming to Curaçao!

Cheers,

Sandy Natalia

My friends and I did the sightseeing trip on our second day.The 2.5 hr trip showcase a splash of colorful residences along the Spanish Water and a perfect angle to capture The Tafelberg. This enriching and relaxed experience was demonstrated by Jaime who has a great knowledge of the Island and it's history. This trip is perfect to catch a breath of fresh air and i recommend it to everybody.

I live in the Jan Sofat area and I had two friends in town. I was able to show them my "neighborhood" on Spanish Waters and learn so much about Curacao. Thank you to Jaime and our Captain!

Had a fantastic day with Herman and Jamie on their Red Snapper.
If you are looking to have a "chill-day" snorkelling/swimming in 27c water around Spanish Water this is a Must Do.
The crack was great and Herman knows everything about Curacao.
The barbecue was excellent.
Thanks once again for helping to make our visit to this beautiful island great.
