The Calipso Galapagos Yacht is the first of its kind, a first-class vessel offering departures for both Naturalist and Diving itineraries. Fully refurbished and reinvented in 2019, her large interiors were rebuilt with 10 stunning cabins accommodating up to 16 passengers. This modern vessel is outfitted with cabins on all its 3 decks, featuring 2 single cabins, and 8 regular twin or double cabins. The Calipso Galapagos liveaboard is the newest offering to cruise the islands, exquisitely designed for the discerning traveler! Outstanding itineraries provide passengers with in-depth and extensive programs, both inland and underwater. An enriching diving and land-based discovery of the archipelago is now within your reach.

Cabins of the Calipso Galapagos Yacht
In our opinion, the Calipso Galapagos liveaboard cruise cabins are unrivaled in comparison with other ships within its class. Completely redesigned in 2019, the Calipso is now the definition of Feng Shui, marrying chic design with well-appointed and cozy furniture.   Each spacious stateroom includes wall to wall panoramic windows affording the greatest of Galapagos views, and large flatscreen TV with an array of entertainment options. Most importantly, all beds are fitted with hotel-quality linens, and flexibility options for bedding can fit any situation, whether you are a single traveler or a family. The rooms are also built for utility, with plenty of storage space for clothing and belongings, and a safe for valuables. Each room is equipped with wall ports for charging, along with dedicated USB ports for any electronics. Enjoy the cabin at any temperature you like with the air conditioning system. Additionally, each suite has a private bathroom with a hot shower featuring a rainfall showerhead. As you get ready for the evening, you’ll find a vanity, blow dryer, and all amenities necessary for your stay. Throughout the week, the professional room service staff will keep your room spic and span while you are away on excursions.

Social Areas of the Calipso Galapagos Yacht
Stepping outside of the living quarters of the Calipso Galapagos Cruise, you’ll without a doubt be stunned by the social areas. Head up to the upper deck solarium for sunbathing and wildlife watching on the upper deck solarium, with a Jacuzzi to boot. This area provides both shaded and full sun areas with plenty of cozy furniture, along with a wet bar serving whatever cocktail, wine, or beer you desire. Lastly, the Al Fresco station is perfect for an outdoor picnic, which will undoubtedly have your mouth watering.

In the evenings, spend some time in the swanky and cozy salon area full of color, featuring a large rectangular couch with plenty of room for all guests of the Calipso. The massive flatscreen TV is perfect for settling down and watching a movie. This is also the where you will be provided with a 15-minute briefing on the following day’s activities. Lastly, the dining area is of restaurant size and quality, with plenty of room for your group. You will be served spectacular meals three times a day. Coffee and snacks are also available in this area 24/7. Closeby, enjoy a full bar stocked with premium international and national liquors, fine wines, and local beer.

World Class Staff of the Calispo Galapagos Yacht
A highly vetted and professionally trained crew, the staff of the Calipso Galapagos liveaboard cruise continue to impress with their friendly and knowledgeable presence. Among the crew, a veteran sous chef cooking delicious meals and snacks throughout the day, a bilingual Galapagos naturalist guide with knowledge of every inch of the park, room service, your captain, and a professional barman. For the diving excursions, rest assured you will be in the best hands with the best master divers of the Galapagos islands. For every eight guests, there is one guide.
