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.

This was my first ever catamaran trip and it was nothing short of perfect! Our group of 8 were picked up near our cruise ship and taken for a fun filled day of snorkeling with turtles and diving to shipwrecks.

Crew was superior, serving a wide variety of premiem beverages, hors d'oeuvres, and a wonderful meal. Capt Nick assisted beginners in the water and ensured everyone enjoyed their trip. Visit to turtles and... More

This was our second trip to Barbados and we had such a fantastic experience with Nick the first time that we booked with him again. The trip, again, was the highlight of our holiday. We were picked up promptly outside of our condo and brought to the marina where the crew was waiting for us. My two daughters, 8 and... More

We've been out with Nick on Calypso on several previous visits to Barbados. This time was as good as all the others, with the added bonus that nobody else had booked, (the catamaran takes up to 14 guests), so it was like a private tour! Nick, ably assisted by Xavier, took us out into Carlisle Bay, where we snorkelled with... More

This is a really nice way to spend the day. We walked out of the cruise port and they had a nice taxi/van ready to pick up the guests. A short drive to downtown where we boarded the catamaran. The nice thing about this trip is that they only take 14 people. I think we had 12 the day we... More

Captain Nick, and the crew were amazing. We had such a blast snorkeling with the Sea Turtles and then the 2 ship wrecks. We then went on a cruise were we were fed appetizers and drinks.
