After a typical hot breakfast, you will board Manta Raya at Calypso’s private dock for the 90-minute ride across the beautiful Gulf of Nicoya. Yacht Manta Raya has been designed to pull right up on the beach for easy and safe landing.

 

In the afternoon, after Calypso’s guaranteed 5 hours at Tortuga Island, your Captain will take you to see many of the protected islands in the Gulf of Nicoya: Cedros Island, Jesusita Island, the bird sanctuary of Guayabo Island, Sugarloaf Island, Gypsy Island and the now closed maximum security prison of San Lucas Island for a TOUR OF DISCOVERY unique to Calypso Cruises, on the return trip to Puntarenas and Casa Calypso.

Calypso Cruises originated the One Day Tour to Tortuga Island Costa Rica from San Jose and Jaco more than 40 years ago and since then has escorted nearly 1 million happy tourists on the original Yacht Calypso and now on the Yacht Catamaran Manta Raya. This is the only tour to Tortuga Island that includes two hot meals and has a CST - Certification of Sustainable Tourism (no single use plastic cups, plates, tableware, straws or plastic bottles). Calypso’s award winning “All Inclusive Tour" is known for consistent quality, personal service and excellent food (featured in Gourmet Magazine) served on a white sand beach in casual elegance.

 

For these reasons Calypso’s "Tortuga Island Cruise" remains the most popular one day tour in Costa Rica and sets the standards that others aspire to copy.

What makes Calypso so special: A wonderful day at the beautiful white sand beach of Tortuga Island, riding on the world class yacht catamaran Manta Raya, enjoying gourmet dining featured in Gourmet Magazine; our passengers get to enjoy a cruising experience UNIQUE TO CALYPSO CRUISES.

 

In the afternoon, Calypso's Captain will cruise past many of the islands in the Gulf of Nicoya taking a different route back to port; important to not only foreign travelers to see and learn more of Costa Rica's history but also for national tourism and those who want to see up close, maybe for the first time, the beautiful and protected uninhabited islands and bird sanctuaries in the Gulf of Nicoya accessible only by water. After passing the now closed famous prison Island San Lucas you will witness a beautiful sunset.  This makes Calypso unique, combining the Tortuga Island Cruise with a Gulf Islands Tour and finally ending a perfect day with

a beautiful Sunset Tour for a complete One-Day-Vacation.
