Calipso Galapagos Liveaboard Introduction
Fully remodeled and refurbished, the Calipso Galapagos diving cruise is ready to strut its elegance throughout the Galapagos Islands. The Calipso is the newest offering available for diving in the Galapagos, and it provides an unforgettable experience in one of the most pristine diving hotspots on the planet. When looking to book the Calipso diving cruise, keep in mind that it is a mixed vessel. This means it will offer both nature and diving excursions! This ship is a unique vessel in this sense. This is because this ship is one of a small few that offer both types of excursions. Most locations in the world usually only have one specialty or the other (Diving or nature), unless visiting a location like Australia. The Galapagos is teeming with wildlife both on land and under the sea. Due to this fact, the Calipso is elevated to the rank of a first-class category cruise.
