Come join us for an award winning, relaxed fun day of sailing a 43 foot catamaran boat that cruises along the coast of Barbados! We sail with limited numbers to ensure a more personal and intimate experience.

Our 5 hour tour includes pick up from your hotel/resort/ship, snorkeling with the turtles, ship wreck or reef and a leisurely lunch stop. We provide snorkeling gear, hors d' houerves while we sail, a full 'Bajan buffet lunch [this includes local fish, baked chicken, macaroni pie, pasta salad, potato salad, tossed salad and dinner rolls/garlic bread & delicious deserts] and an open bar to keep you hydrated and relaxed. We serve wine, rum punch, coffee, tea, juices and soft drinks throughout the day!

We have cruises during the day and evening cruises.

Warning: don't save this for your last day, you will want to do it again during your stay in Barbados!

You can also book a private cruise!

Our boat is available for private charter for those of you that want the boat for a birthday party, wedding party, or just an intimate getaway.

For this we charge by the hour, with a minimum of 3 hour or for as long as you would like the experience to last. We usually take a maximum of 14 guests but we allow up to 20 people for these cruises.

Calypso Girl is a 2003 43ft fontaine pajot sailing catamaran that is very comfortable and stable, perfect for just about every one. She has a custom ladder making it easy to get in and out of the water. A huge head (bath room) , indoor and out door seating so you can get just the right amount of sun, and a big front net for you to relax on.

This is a really nice way to spend the day. We walked out of the cruise port and they had a nice taxi/van ready to pick up the guests. A short drive to downtown where we boarded the catamaran. The nice thing about this trip is that they only take 14 people. I think we had 12 the day we... More

We were looking for a sunset cruise and originally phoned another company but they were fully booked and kindly referred us to Calypso Cruises. I'm very glad they did. We took this cruise on February 23. We had a great time. Driver was very patient when he collected us from our accommodation. Staff very welcoming and competent. Other guests were... More

Captain Nick, and the crew were amazing. We had such a blast snorkeling with the Sea Turtles and then the 2 ship wrecks. We then went on a cruise were we were fed appetizers and drinks. Nick then anchored the catamaran in a nice bay and we were fed a very tasty lunch. We were given plenty of time after... More

Captain Nick's catamaran had all that you'd expect in a catamaran snorkel trip and more. We did two snorkel stops and a lunch stop. We started with a snack, ate lunch later, had cheesecake for dessert and unlimited drinks flowed the whole trip. They did not let us want for anything as they served each of us as we laid... More

My wife and I and another couple booked a day cruise (5 hours) on the Calypso with Captain Nick and his amazing crew. We were in Barbados for the day off of a cruise ship. They accommodated our ships arrival time and met us at the port for pickup. After a short ride across town to where the calypso was... More

We've used Silver Moon on Barbados for a one-day day cruise before and were disappointed we couldn't get booked with them again... however this turned out to be our good luck as Calypso were a cut above. The ratio of staff to customer is just right and the service from Nick, Michael and Che was first class. Drinks & canapés... More

My family and I were lucky enough to spend a day last week on the Calypso lunch cruise during our RCCL stop in Barbados. We started off by visiting the turtles and got to see two of them. Mike was in the water with his feeding the turtles. He did a great job of taking care of the turtles and... More

The service was great and the drinks were flowing. The boat is quite run down although did not seem unsafe. The captain and his first mate were very friendly. Delicious food and service with a smile. On our day out, we went to swim with turtles. However, it was over crowded with hundreds of people all looking at the same... More

Great friendly atmosphere, snorkelled with sea turtles and over ship wreaks. Sailed up the coast. With plenty of good food and drinks provided throughout the day. Great price included transport to and from hotel (which was up near Speights Town!).

My wife and I booked Val and Nick to take us to swim with the turtles and see the Ship Reck. We had a great time and the crew was excellent and did not miss a beat. Highly recommend Calypso Cruises. Can't wait to go again!
