Overview

Calypso II is a private catamaran available at affordable rates for parties of up to six people to enjoy a day on the water in their own skippered 34' sailing yacht. Tour the harbor, sail in the Gulf of Mexico, watch dolphins up close, snorkel or just relax and enjoy a sunset with a great beverage and your favorite friend(s).

We chose this catamaran tour because it was very close to where we were staying. The staff was great and we had a great time. Any day on a catamaran is better than a day at work!!

We had a great experience with Captain Jim on the Calypso 2. He worked hard to make sure we had a lot of fun, and got to see wild dolphins. The 4 hour excursion was well worth the investment. We sailed with 2 families, including...More

When we arrived at the specified location, Capt. Jim was nowhere to be found. I called and spoke with him: he had forgotten about our excursion, even though we spoke two days before. My family and I drove another 30 or so minutes to where...More

Captain Jim, may have been nice... But this was not worth the money...we were lead to believe it was going to be emerald waters to snorkel, and possibly swim with dolphins, but instead we just "sailed" the bay dark waters, that's it!! All that money...More
