Overview

The Calipso Galapagos Cruise vessel was fully renovated in 2019 and now offers traditional naturalist itineraries and exclusive diving options. If you are a diving enthusiast who also loves the comforts of a comfortable life aboard, this is one of your top options in the Galapagos. This spacious yacht features six upper decks and two main deck double cabins. The lower deck offers two smaller cabins for solo travelers.

The high season offers the chance to dive with whale sharks, while the low season brings better opportunities to view the abundance of hammerheads and rays.
