Owner description: Calypso Tours is a tourism pioneer in Costa Rica. We created the now world famous "Tortuga Island Cruise" in 1975 and are CR's first independent tour operator. Throughout the 40 years that Calypso Cruises has been the number one tour in Costa Rica. Experience blue water, white sand, green mountains, superb cuisine and attentive personal service. Calypso's super catamaran, Manta Raya, will pass through more than seven islands in the Gulf of Nicoya. Her Port of Call is the beautiful, palm studded Tortuga Island where you can walk the impeccable white sand beach, swim in the turquoise waters and investigate the marine life, while the crew prepares a sumptuous feast (featured in Gourmet Magazine). Enjoy dining in the shade of white umbrellas with tables covered in white linen.

Reviewed January 19, 2013

We took the Tortuga Island in Costa Rica in January 2013. The service and food was excellant. They treat you with the highest respect. The beach was beautiful. We were able to snorkel, ride the banana boat, and swim in the warm water. The staff that helps put the day together was excellant. All very friendly, good with English language, and the meal was served to us with table clothes and umbrellas to protect from the sun. The boat was a smooth ride. We were served fruit and drinks. A great experience. I would do it again.

“Great Time”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

My boyfriend and I were in Costa Rica for 5 days at the end of the year. We took the Saturday excursion. The Calypso staff was awesome. We had a good breakfast before boarding the boat. While sailing, the staff continously provided fruit and drinks. Once we arrived on the island, the difference between the companies became evident. Calypso provided beach chairs and hammocks for us, while the other companies did not, which required there passangers to rent them. Lunch was fabulous! Again, Calypso pulled out all the stops. They transformed the picnic areas with large umbrellas and table linens. Most importantly the food was good! If you are in Costa Rica a visit to the Tortuga is a must and you MUST do it with Calypso!
