About Calypso
CHARTERS & TOURS The preference of our customers confirms the absolute leadership of Calypso Charters & Tours in the Private Charters & Tours sector. We offer the largest observation time on the island, a comfortable and quiet navigation, spacious rooms and male and female toilets. The wide space of our ship allows all passengers to have excellent places to observe and photograph. ISLA DE LOBOS TOUR DURATION:2 HOURS In the Calypso we make a careful and slow approach to flocks seeking not to impact negatively in the activity and tranquillity of animals. From the spacious and comfortable decks of The Calypso, you can observe and photograph this unique spectacle of 200,000 sea lions in their natural habitat. In order to remain silent, without altering that magical moment of the trip, the crew informs passengers of the particular characteristics of the island and its wildlife without speakers. Our comfortable cruise, shortens the time to 35' to the location and 35' back (Depending on sea conditions), allowing us to offer the longer time possible at the location (50' approx.). CHARTERS Let us set up private charter destinations, schedules and activities of your choice. An ideal place to bring the family on a trip that will be remembered by all as the best holiday program ever. The Island Cruise offers an afternoon at an exclusive island Gorriti beach, bathing in the sea, sun and music with family or friends, with catering services available. Our Sunset Cruise is a great way to experience the magic of a sunset aboard the Calypso. We invite with a glass of champagne to see the sunset while the city lights starts showing. Both programs are great for anniversaries. The Bay Cruise is a classic corporate program. We sail through the calm waters of the bay appreciating the wonderful view of Punta Del Este, with different choices of foods and drinks.

We booked this tour through the ship and it was more of a fishing boat than a yacht. My husband was sea sick and went into the interior part of the boat to recover, but there was a strong smell of fish which made him more ill. I could smell it too and was unable to stay inside that boat of the boat. Other than passing by the Museo - Taller de Casapueblo, we just passed by homes along the bay. I don't really feel like we got a very good look at Uruguay from this excursion. I would not recommend it, especially when booking from a cruise ship.

Response from Jorge F, Manager at Calypso
Responded Nov 2, 2018
We are sorry for your bad experience in Punta del Este. You surely did not take our boat, because we don't offer an excursion to Casapueblo and we just operate only one boat, a Catamaran which does not do fishing activity. The only place to book an excursion from us is from our sales office in Punta del Este's Harbour. Hope you come back to Uruguay and try out our excursions, you will notice the difference that positions our company as top leaders since more than 20 years.
