Boat description

The M/Y Calipso is fully refurbished in 2019 and today stands as one of the most comfortable and modern first class yachts available for cruising in the Galapagos Islands. The yacht is particularly popular with travellers interested in natural history. 

The large teak sun deck is the perfect location for relaxing after time ashore; perhaps enjoy the jacuzzi. The deck also features al fresco dining, one of the joys of your cruise.
