'Calypso' is a very spacious catamaran with large upper and lower foredecks designed with comfortable day bed seating to maximise outdoor relaxation. Guests enjoy the top deck with sunlounges which provide breathtaking 360 degree views of the reef.

Catering for approximately 80 passengers (during high season), an impressive feature of this catamaran is the nine metre wide back deck. This provides room, comfort and ease for all snorkellers and divers to enter the water for marine activities.
