Completely rebuilt from the keel up in 2019, Calipso Galapagos is a wonderfully contemporary yacht embarking on adventurous seven-night voyages in the Galapagos.

And, designed with diver comfort and efficiency in mind, this amenity-rich liveaboard is sure to impress.
Not content with offering just exceptional dive holidays, with Calipso Galapagos, guests can also add extra exciting extensions onto their trip. Visit volcanoes, hot springs and cloud forest in the Andes or trek through the mighty Amazon rainforest. Or, if you hate packing, this vessel alternates between diving and land-based naturalist cruises - so you can stay on board for two weeks and experience the best of the Galapagos, both above and below the water.
Calipso Galapagos is owned and operated by a family who are passionate about the Galapagos Islands, the ocean and conservation. The family are also involved in the widely respected Foundation for Alternative Responsible Development (FUNDAR) Galapagos as well as helping to export contaminants out of Galapagos for recycling on the mainland.
This contemporary vessel accommodates up to 16 guests in eight ensuite cabins, each equipped with all the comfort of a hotel. Calipso Galapagos’ spacious salon and dining areas are tastefully furnished and offer amazing panoramic views on both sides. Meals can be taken here, or al fresco on the sun deck, and consist of a pre-dive continental breakfast followed by all-you-can-eat breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets. International and Ecuadorian options are available, all prepared with fresh local produce and seafood. Alongside the large outdoor dining table, the sun deck also offers a bar and barbecue area, plenty of comfortable loungers and a Jacuzzi. Calipso Galapagos is also one of the only Galapagos Islands liveaboards with complimentary WiFi.
