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.

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!

My sister and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Barbados. Every day brought new and exciting experiences, but the highlight of our vacation was our five hour cruise on the Caribbean side of the island with the Calypso Catamaran. This cruise company was not our first choice. It was the fourth call we made and the only one... More

The whole experience was wonderful from when the taxi driver collected us until the cruise finished and took us back. I can't say enough about Val, Nick and Mike who looks after every need. It is so nice to be on a catamaran that is not packed with cruise customers. We did this cruise our 2nd day in Barbados and... More

We booked a day cruise for the last day of our holiday, all I can say is Wow! This was one of best things I've done on any vacation. Price included a taxi to and from our accommodation, unlimited drinks, never-ending snacks and a superb buffet lunch. We snorkelled with turtles and over 2 wrecks to see the many beautiful... More

I really loved this cruise, from the minute you step on to the boat the service is impeccable. Nick knows what's best, he is a people person, friendly, likeable and a great taste in music! We sailed up the west coast on a glorious Barbados day, swam with the turtles, anchored for a great Bajan lunch, more swimming and relaxed... More

From start to finish Nick and his crew make you feel like part of the family. The snorkeling is fantastic, the drinks are amazing, and lunch was incredible. The boat ride after snorkeling was a very relaxing way to round out the experience. Highly recommend!

I have been on numerous cruises throughout the years during my annual vacations, but this cruise is by far the best ever!!! It's one of the primary reasons I now vacation every year in Barbados. Nick, Val and the entire staff are some of the nicest folks you'll ever meet. They make you feel like family. They are also experienced... More

There are lots of catamaran cruises to take in Barbados but I think the Calypso cruise is definitely amongst the best! Captain Nick and his crew make you very welcome. Maximum numbers on the trip are 14 so plenty of room to find a good spot. The food is exception with plates of smoked salmon, fine cheeses and salad sticks... More

It was a rainy day when we were at Barbados, which made the sailing interesting. However, this tour was not for people looking for snorkelling, rather, if you like drinking and talking all day, this would be the one (but again, why don't do this on the balcony?) Swim with turtle occurred 2 min after sail, which means anyone can... More

it was a rainy day . we had a group of 12 other swedish guests on board that day. we did head to the turtles and ship wrecks that are about 5 mins from where we dock which we choose to do because they are in shallower and more friendly water compared to some of the other places you can... More
