This trip was amazing. Everything was so organized and run so smoothly. All the staff were entertaining, and kept everyone informed of things along the way - they pointed all the cool things out and gave us lessons of cool things.

Fabulous island getaway day trip
, Apr 2019
I had a great time at this Calypso Cruise trip to Tortuga island! Everything was immaculately organized - from the hotel pickups at Jaco to breakfast before boarding the vessel, to the smooth ride, snorkelling, lunch and banana boat ride on the island. The crew took every care to ensure we had a great time - from having marimba music on the island, to putting up hammocks and canopies for our comfort. Definitely recommend for a fun, relaxed day trip.

We had a great experience! The staff and crew work very hard to make sure everything is perfect. It was one of the most favorite things we did in Costa Rica. Highly recommend.

The food was amazing and plentiful, the drinks as well! We expected clear water like VIslands or cayman...not even close on beach or snorkeling site, didn't see much snorkeling. The picture advertised is not where were, it was beautiful and clear all week prior too.

We really appreciated your comments and we want to apologize if we did not meet your expectations. The water is part of nature that we can´t control. We keep working to increase our service so we hope to welcome you back again and have the opportunity for make things better.
It was Ok

Unfortunately the boat had some mechanical issues. Which led to a very noisy generator on board. Lots of black smoke behind the boat. And absolutely no music on board. Staff was good and did the best they could and I’m sure an awkward situation !
Amazing Trip

I recommend this on your trip to Costa Rica. The crew service was awsome and the food delicious. The ride back was breathtaking with the sunset as you are coming into port.
One of the best

This starts out OK and gets better...

This starts out OK and gets better as it goes. Breakfast is pretty standard CR food, decent but not special. Then you wait at the dock for a long time while some guys play Calypso music. The boat ride out is fine, although they blast loud music all the time and you can't escape it. The island itself is OK, a LOT more crowded than pictures would suggest. The lunch area is decent, and the food is just OK. Our area was very constrained - you can't go exploring. Snorkeling is HORRIBLE - 200 people from multiple tours all splashing around in the same small area, with little to see. I spent the remaining time in a hammock, which was very nice, my son played volleyball, wife and daughters hung out on the beach beach chairs cost , which they don't tell you until you arrive. The best part was the cruise back to the dock, not because the day as over, but because the sunset is beautiful. All in all, it's worth doing, but it's a mobfest - don't expect a secluded island.
If you only have time to do one...

If you only have time to do one tour- THIS IS IT! I've been to Costa Rica multiple times and I must say this is the best tour I've been on. It was professionally organized, everything ran on time and the activities, food and crew were fantastic! The food amounts were more than enough for the entire today- you get a full traditional Costa Rican breakfast and then lunch comes with multiple courses. The island is also filled with animals- so you'll most likely see a lot of that while you're there. Also, look for the resident pig- she may be wandering around or napping under the benches. The snorkelling was a great activity and you get to see colourful fish and starfish. The banana boat was fun and you had two options- a calm ride or loco- loco was really fun. The DJ plays great music on the catamaran on the way there and back. The bus picks you up and drops you off right in front of your hotel and is quite comfortable and air-conditioned. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR!
