We had a tour booked with another company and they backed out right before we left on our cruise. I emailed Jaime and he let me.know they were available for us the day we were docked in Curacao. He gave me directions for the cab driver and we were dropped off exactly in the correct spot. It was about 30 min from the cruiseship port. The day started out overcast and drizzling but just as we were getting ready to snorkel at the sunken Tugboat, the sun came out! We had an awesome time snorkeling and saw lots of cool fish. Afterwards, the Captain took us the Santa Barbara resort beach where we were able to hang out and swim and play for an hour. We could have used the beach but we stayed in the water. Our oldest son spent the entire time snorkeling near the dock. It was nice and sunny and we had a great time. The boat was stocked with fruit punch, water, beer and wine which was great. I always bring snacks. After the beach we got a tour of the Spanish waters and then we went back. They called us a cab to get back to the port. All in all it was a great day in Curacao!

This was our second trip with Calypso Trips & Tours. Both trips have been excellent. The excellent knowledge and wonderful humor of Captain Herbert made everything work smoothly. The interests and comfort of the participants were always kept in mind. I would highly recommend Calypso Trips & Tours to anyone wanting a fun and relaxed trip.

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)

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!
